Ryde Park Street Art Project is now complete

Published on 14 July 2020

The Ryde Art Street Art Project is now complete! 

As selected by the Arts Advisory Committee, this mural was designed and installed by Artist Elliot Routledge (AKA Elliot Numbskull or Funskull). Community consultation workshops were planned to take place with local residents and relevant stakeholders, however due to the Covid 19 pandemic, the consultation was undertaken online.

The artwork features traced outlines of the classic Jacaranda fern, the natural curved and wiggly lines of the gum trees, coupled with bold and fun colours. Large open sections of the collage are filled with coloured gestural marks, suggesting movement and fun. Hidden inside the collage are the words “Ryde Park”. Unnoticeable at first glance, but if frequented enough, the viewer will start to unravel and piece together the subtle words in the background. The detailed and busy nature of the mural will also hopefully deter any vandalism. This piece titled “Move & Shake” is comprised of colours found from the immediate area and hopes to exude a sense of fun and moving energy.
