Brisbane Street Art Festival
Brisbane Street Art Festival (BSAF) is an annual public art event that seeks to provide opportunities for creative practitioners and the wider community to develop positive partnerships through engagement and collaboration. As an avenue for artistic expression, BSAF endeavours to create a multi-disciplinary platform that encourages any and all art forms to participate. BSAF provides a framework of showcase and engagement for public art across Brisbane.
We are excited to share the FOUR Artists who will be showcasing their work at Orion Springfield Central.
Meet the Artists:
Purik is a graphic designer and illustrator born in Ecuador. His work is based on the iconography of Latin American and Afro-descendant tribes applying techniques such as spray and acrylic.
Aleja is a visual artist and muralist based in Brisbane. Her style involves a form of realistic composite art with enhanced and abstracted colours, drawing from the ideas and style of surrealism. She largely focuses on depicting women and nature in unique ways to tell stories about the world. Her art offers a perspective on the ideas surrounding the feminine archetype, playing with the ideas of balance and power.
Karri McPherson is a contemporary Visual Artist who specialises in painting and mural art. Within her work, Karri uses geometry as a mechanism to influence the way that our public spaces are experienced by re-contextualising themes and ideas into eye-catching artworks. Her geometric designs are influenced by everything from modern landscapes to historical symbolism, and she uses these topical themes as tools to enhance her artwork’s relevance, meaning and visual impact. To bolster the conceptual rigour of her murals, Karri undertakes extensive research into site locations and relevant themes to inform the design process.
By investing dedicated time into understanding the proposed themes for each of her projects, Karri thoughtfully translates concepts into visual language for different communities within the public to appreciate. Each of her murals embody distinct characteristics that convey pertinent subjects and ideas to diverse audiences in an exciting and artistic way. Her powerful use of geometry is inspired by an intrinsic desire for balance, unity and symbolism, and her unique compositions invite communities to celebrate the timelessness and universality of shape, form and colour.
