Mural painted for First Coat festival in Toowoomba, Australia.
Dimensions: 45’ x 15’
The finished piece is titled “Don't Forget to Stop and Share the Roses”. A modern take on a classic phrase, this mural playfully explores the blurred lines between our physical lives and digital lives. Hidden inside the handmade floral illustrations are subtle social media icons for the viewer to discover. Social media is a seemingly necessary evil - both praised for its ability to keep us connected with each other and criticized for distracting us from real life. In a world where we interact online as much as we do in person, this mural poses the question: What does it mean to stop and smell the roses today?
