Bundaberg’s newest mural is ‘turtly’ awesome
BUNDABERG has another impressive piece of street art, with a new Tim Phibs mural being completed at Hinkler Central, fittingly of a giant turtle.
The enormous, environmentally themed piece was commissioned by Hinkler Central as part of the Crush Festival and to coincide with the arrival of the endangered loggerhead turtles for their annual nesting and hatching season at Mon Repos.
Phibs is a renowned Australian visual artist who has been working with aerosol and acrylic exterior paint for the last 25 years.
“I find street art is a perfect way to engage with young people on topics such as conservation and respect for our environment,” Phibs said.
“I am passionate about creating awareness for sea conservation and I would love to come back to Bundaberg to do more art around environmental issues.”
