Issabella and Montana

I purchased A class antique bricks from a demo site in Melbourne and transported them to Brisbane, hired a brick layer to lay them in front of an existing wall, then I rendered and painted 'Montana' on the brick wall. We then bagged the other 70's tan bricks through the entire pub so that the only exposed brick was these antique bricks in the mural. Even the tradies on the job were like, 'it's great you managed to save these old bricks'. We wanted to give the illusion that his new pub had been here forever. The art was going to be on a back wall, but the publican changed the location at the last minute to make it the feature wall. It has come to stand for the pub. It is iconic in the area and all the performers play in front of the wall. This is one of three murals in brick which I have created, all for the same publican in the Montague Hotel West End, Fortitude Valley [now closed], and the Queens Arms in Roma.
