Rundle Place On The Hunt For Graffiti Artists

Rundle Place On The Hunt For Graffiti Artists

We think they mean they’d like spray-artists experienced in murals, but the submissions are open to all.

We think they mean murals by spray-artists, but let’s just run with ‘graffiti’ for the mean time… Rundle Place is on the lookout for three local talented graffiti street artists to adorn the walls of their carpark stairwells. And they’re offering some solid incentives.

With street art form taking over a number of blank walls and outdoor spaces across Adelaide, Rundle Place are calling out to Adelaide street artists to help create inspirational, fun and fashion forward graffiti walls on the flights of stairs from Level 6 through to the Rundle Place Basement. We guess that means the brief is more than just a pitch at a mural.

Centre Manager, Kate Jarman has said that sporadic graffiti has already appeared across some of the Rundle Place carpark stairwell walls but the centre wants its walls to be inspired by artists interpretation of food and fashion, rather than the ‘spray and go’ tags. Which seems completely reasonable considering they own the building.

“If you’re an artist and looking for a large scale project, this is your chance to show us what you’ve got. Rundle Place is taking visual submissions/expressions of interest until Wednesday 12 October to find three aspiring artists that are wanting to create something unique, colourful and fun,” Kate said.

Considering the incredible array of artist who call Adelaide home, it will be interesting to see who goes in the running for the prizes on offer; basically a Rundle Place gift card in place of $5k, $3k and $1.5k. That’s not small change. We can think of a few who we’ve spied previously in our Guide To Adelaide’s Unreal Street Art.
