Artist: Sebastian Fransz
Location: 77 Dumfries Street, Deer Park
The scene uses a very dramatic and stylised perspective, to emphasise the beauty of the ordinary when dusk hits the suburbs – the light, the sounds and smells, the stillness of the atmosphere.
This mural is a tribute to peoples’ stories, places and lives, and the art of everyday urban life in the suburbs. It aims to contribute to the identity and uniqueness of the area and help establish a sense of pride and ownership of space.
About Sebastian Fransz
Sebastian works as a drawer and painter. A graduate of RMIT University’s Fine Art degree, and member of Melbourne’s Blender Studios from early 2012 to early 2017, he carries on a practice of abstraction, where process and change are the forces which dictate the outcome of each work, and where perception, memory and meaning are primary concerns. Alongside his studio works, Sebastian also paints large murals and works as a community art facilitator, often with young people on graffiti and street art public projects. He has been producing public art for over ten years with different councils and organisations throughout Victoria.
