CLIENT: MARCS Laneway Festival & DULUX AUSTRALIA
ARTIST: Fintan Magee
BRIEF: MARCS Festival, sponsored by the City of Melbourne, hit Duckboard Place & ACDC Laneways for its second year in February, 2016.
MARCS is a celebration of what Melbourne is essentially about – its world-famous food and beverage establishments, the ever-changing music scene and the famous painted laneways.
Fintan Magee wowed passers-by and festival-goers alike with a 70ft installation ‘The Volunteer’ exemplifying why he's regarded by many as one of Australia's finest street artists.
Dulux, one of the key sponsors of this project, was so impressed that they put 'The Volunteer' forward for their 2016 Colour Awards, up against some 187 entrants. This piece received Special Commendation, only missing out to the eventual winner, The National Gallery of Victoria. An unbelievable effort.
