This piece was completed by Andre Braun – BondiWorld in mid-December 2016. Andre repainted the Seagull in a number of positions through 2017 and 2018.
Andre told us:
Bondi represents for me a place where birds and humans share the same place, and came here long before us. The close proximity to the beach is a perfect spot to highlight this amazingly adaptive bird and to giving it the centre stage!
Having observing seagulls for many years, I was surprised to see so many similarities in the way they mimic human expressions.
The painting is representing a single seagull. It is my representation of what the “thinker” from Rodin represent to human, a “thinker” of the bird world. The mural is an attempt to bring our attention to these very adaptive and flamboyant creatures.
