High-rise masterpiece

A new work of art has been presented 38-storeys above the ground on the side of the Marco Apartments construction site in Southbank.

The development’s builders, Crema Constructions, launched the first ever Australian “Gallery in the Sky” on November 8, as part of a commitment to supporting local street artists in Melbourne.

The original piece, titled Everything You Change, is the work of established street artist Adnate, who’s best known for his stunning portraits, typically of indigenous people, that can be seen around the CBD.

Adnate said he painted indigenous cultural portraits “to raise awareness of their cultural beauty and their struggle to survive in the western climate of today”.

Having produced the piece for the installation, Crema’s managing director Luch Crema said it was wonderful to be able to showcase Adnate’s work where everyone could see it.

“As the structure continues to rise over the next few months, Adnate’s artwork will rise with it, giving Melbourne a brilliant piece of artwork to enjoy,” he said.

The original artwork will be featured and sold at Melbourne’s Metro Gallery with all proceeds and an additional donation from the construction company going to the Victorian Aboriginal Childcare Agency (VACCA).

VACCA CEO Muriel Bamblett said the initiative would help raise much-needed funds for their art program mentoring vulnerable Aboriginal children and youth.

“We run these programs to strengthen Aboriginal children and young people’s cultural awareness, identity and connection to community. In doing so, we build resilience,” she said.
