Location: Brimbank Multi-deck Car Park, Sunshine
Renowned street artist, Adnate, has transformed the Multi-deck Carpark with a large-scale mural celebrating the cultural diversity of Brimbank. He illustrates four faces including a Wurundjeri girl (at the top), a young African woman, an elderly Eastern European man, and a young Vietnamese boy.
Adnate’s mural is one of a broader series of works across Brimbank called Faces of Diversity.
Adnate is an artist that realises his portraits in spray paint. He has moved past his roots in Street Art, utilising the medium to carry his realist style into the fine art realm.
Heavily influenced by the chiaroscuro of renaissance painters like Caravaggio, Adnate embraces portraiture like the masters of the XXI Century.
Adnate has worked closely with indigenous people of their native land, especially with Indigenous Australians. He paints large scale murals around Australia and the world, creating a statement of reclaiming the land that was always theirs. He endeavours to capture the stories and emotions of each subject he paints, encouraging the audience to feel through their own experience.
