The Imperial Centre in Gosford has partnered with internationally-renowned Australian street Artists Ghostpatrol, and Carla McRae to create an art installation in the centre for the community to enjoy.
Ghostpatrol and McRae created a giant mural approximately 25 metres in length from October 2 to 5.
The artists painted throughout centre trading hours and locals were invited to witness the work as it took shape.
Both artists are Melbourne based designers and illustrators with huge followings and demand for their artwork, with their works appearing in streets and publications around the world.
For this mural, the artists took inspiration directly from the Gosford region, with bright colours representing the beauty of the region as well as, the eclectic local culture.
“The mural will aim to create an experience that will create a sense of place, and that inspires and embodies the spirit of the Gosford community,” said Ghostpatrol.“We aim to capture the community’s love for a relaxed lifestyle and the natural environment,” he said.
Imperial Centre manager, Ms Deborah Warwick said the installation was a unique way the centre could use the space whilst the redevelopment continues, to benefit and inspire the local community.
“The Imperial Centre is more than just a place to shop and eat. “It’s a place where the community can come and experience everything from art and food, to fashion and culture,” Ms Warwick said.
“The art installation will be a celebration of all the things we love about Gosford, and having such well-renowned artists involved is a real coup for the community.
“The installation is our first creative expression of the new Imperial, and is a hint of what is to come in the near future,” she said. The mural will be located in the lower level in the Mann St centre
