Public Art Commission: Danie Mellor at 480 Queen Street, Brisbane

1 Jul 2020

iAM Independent Arts Management in collaboration with BVN, Grocon and DEXUS Property Group, has commissioned Danie Mellor to produce a mural ranging of 350 square meters.

Mellor’s commissioned mural depicts a rainforest which wraps around the public space of 480 Queen Street linking through the building between Queen and Adelaide Streets and leading to Hobbs Park, all within the 33-storey building.

Being one of the largest work of its kind for a commercial office building in Australia, the displayed rainforest mural printed on glass tiles stretches up into the vertical space and across as visitors ascend through the building’s lower floors.

Mellor’s hand-drawn imagery of a natural rainforest environment and its indigenous inhabitants are based on his signature palette of blue and white.
