Project summary

Power People is a site-specific mural that pays homage to the origins of the location. A visual journey through time, starting with the post-war era of manufacturing machinery and transitioning into the vibrant present-day life of Hindley Street, now a thriving hub for hospitality and entertainment.

The mural unfolds across two facades, with contrasting geometric shapes that capture the essence of these two distinct eras. The convergence of these shapes symbolizes the harmonious coexistence of the past and present. Architectural lighting has been strategically employed, drawing inspiration from the glow of neon signage synonymous with the surrounding night-time precinct.

The result is a dynamic piece of art that encapsulates the evolution of the site, narrating the story of its transformation from an industrial past to a contemporary hotspot.
