Mad March | Well Made Newsletter

Date: 02 Mar 2018

March is definitely a great month for Adelaide! With the Adelaide Festival, Adelaide Fringe and this year the Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art, there’s so much to keep you entertained.

Here is what some of our Well Made practitioners have been up to…

Uber Mural Commission | Bohie

Bohie Palecek was commissioned by Uber Australia to hand paint a pop up mural for the Adelaide Fringe. The mural ties into their #UberFringe campaign, where they asked their customers ‘What is the answer to world peace?’ The mural can be found in front of Gluttony near the box office.

Uber Australia commissioned Bohie through Well Made.

Madame Flavour’s new tea range | BAY

BAY’s painting Mind Map (Sunset) is featured on the packaging of Madame Flavour’s ‘The Melbourne Morning Blend’ released as part of a new Australian range of tea blends. The full artwork is pictured on the back of the box with a short artist bio.

New Mural | Lisa King

Lisa King has completed a new mural at Studio Arabesque in Norwood, featuring another one of her iconic portraits. This is her last mural project before heading to Benalla, Victoria for Wall to Wall festival in March.

Finders Sharers | Laura Wills exhibition

Laura Wills has been working on new pieces for her upcoming solo exhibition Finders Sharers showing at Hill Smith Gallery in March. This will feature works commissioned by Open Space Contemporary Arts for the project Foragers, Weed Gardens and Gatherings. Exhibition runs 8 March – 31 March.

Captured Nature | A.NOUK exhibition

Captured Nature will exhibit architecturally inspired art objects and plant creations by the talented Joslin Koolen of A.NOUK at JPE Design Studio. Exhibition runs 1 March – 13 April.

Prahran Mural | Tristan Kerr

Tristan Kerr was commissioned by Stonnington Council to replace a fading Reko Rennie piece on King Street, Prahran VIC. This new large-scale work celebrates Rennie as an iconic Australian Aboriginal artist, as well as the rich cultural diversity in the area. Tristan Kerr worked with Rhymes Dejour to complete the mural.
