A fantastical and whimsical sub-tropical rainforest has transformed a laneway in Wynnum’s town centre. Striking visuals have converted the laneway into an active space for people to experience, explore, photograph and share.

Adjacent to boutique homewares store Cultivate Design Co on Bay Terrace, the new mural is part of a Laneways Project being undertaken by the new Wynnum Commerce Inc. (WCI) business group to regenerate the lost urban spaces in Wynnum town centre. The aim of the Laneways Project is to create beautiful and meaningful wall murals to inspire, educate and create a sense of place. This in turn will make Wynnum a more attractive destination to both locals and visitors.

The mural on the side of Cultivate Design is the first to be undertaken. Cultivate Design owner and project coordinator Holly Bambridge said, “The design finds the balance between the natural and man-made world. This large painted feature responds directly to the surrounding area, which includes a diverse range of independent retail offerings in a unique strip shopping setting. These are the places customers seek and explore. This energy is reflected in the mural-creating a space where viewers can explore and discover little details the more they look”.

There is also a potential plan to extend the foliage across the ground to reach up the opposing wall, along with a couple of other surprises…

The Bay Terrace wall was funded by both WCI and Brisbane City Council sponsorship. The artwork was undertaken by premier painting and art services company All City Walls with experience of bringing large-scale and complex murals to life.
