Brett Ashby and Local Youth

Frankston

Description

Phone: 1300 322 842

The mural was a collaboration of creativity from Elisabeth Murdoch College as a part of the Responsible Street Art Program, Youth Central and Frankston City Council.  The artwork was designed and painted by Ashby, based on the colours, shape, font and words nominated by students during structured workshops. Lines are used for healing, growth, wealth and luck. It focuses the viewers gaze on a gathering point for vibration.

The students learnt about public art, while exploring the negative impacts of illegal graffiti compared with commissioned street art.

The work is about self-acceptance that leads to authenticity. Ashby’s vision was to showcase the voice of the youth and link the creative solution to the space and place, making it relevant for the community of Frankston.
