A Wall Gone AWOL was painted in August 2015 – AWOLCREATIONS (Taiya) explained the background behind the piece:
I’ve been going to Bondi since I was a little kid. Walking along the wall and seeing all the art was one of my favourite things to do. This is what inspired me to apply for a space.
My piece is called ‘A wall gone AWOL.’ I painted it in August 2015 using paints and posca pens for the details. I didn’t refer to anything as I painted it, I simply made it up as I went along.
The wall depicts freedom and unplanned expression. It mirrors life and our thoughts in a way that it may not always make sense but fits well together and works out in the end.
The piece was super-popular for the 2015-2016 summer season – before it was painted over in April 2016.
