Artist: Sebastian Fransz
Year: 2017
Location: Behind Brimbank City Council Civic and Community Centre, 301 Hampshire Road, Sunshine (between VisyHub and Civic Centre)

The ‘Sunshine’ mural was painted over two days in late November 2016 through Brimbank Youth Services ‘B-Creative Urban Art Program. Artist Sebastian Fransz (co-facilitator of B-Creative) worked with 3 young people on a theme that would depict the word sunshine and what this could represent. This provided these young people with the opportunity to express themselves creatively and publicly and supported them in establishing themselves and other young people as active participants in the community. Vicinity Centre’s (owners of Sunshine Marketplace Shopping Centre) supported the project through funding of materials.

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.
