Hoarding on three levels of the Castle Towers Shopping Centre

Location

Castle Towers in Castle Hill

Brief

QIC wanted to "champion local Sydney artists" throughout the centre to create an “art show” within Castle Towers.

Level 1 is the fresh food section and had the largest amount of hoarding needed. An artist was to create a design that reflected this in a fun, bright, engaging way.

Castle Towers framed the series of hoardings as “A Moment In Time” in which the centre intended to brighten the day of their shoppers with carefully curated art, all while keeping creativity and community vitality at the forefront during their renovations.

Description

Level 1 

Level 1 consists of work by Isabelle Robison, an up and coming graphic designer, originally from Margaret River WA. Her design is a fun, food-centric pattern comprised of delicate food illustrations and restaurant imagery. It reflected the “exciting development changes taking place at the centre” and the marketplace vibe of Castle Towers’ fresh food level. 

Level 2

Gabby Malpas reimagined her delicate water colour paintings to create several hoardings for this project. The finished product was a lavish series of hoardings that featured many floral patterns and traditional Chinese imagery. Gabby is a New Zealand / Australian artist who is proudly Chinese, and explores this in her artistic practice.
