First Mural Of Public 2015 Complete: Beastman & Vans The Omega

Art Press Release from Australia. Published by FORM on Saturday 14 March 2015.

This last week the Pilbara has been host to Australian artists Beastman and Vans the Omega. During their residency the artists installed a major exhibition at the Port Hedland Courthouse Gallery, including two artworks made onsite, and also produced a collaborative mural in the town’s West End.

The completed mural is the first of PUBLIC 2015 and marks the official launch of the program of events to come over the coming months.

Beastman and Vans the Omega have been developing exhibition work over the past few months that are inspired by the Pilbara. Their works look at the landscape of the region from an aerial perspective, and explore the juxtaposition of man and nature in this environment. Similar themes and colour palettes are evident in the collaborative mural by the artists.
