Public Art: Marine Life of Marmion Marine Park, 2016
Artist: Amok Island
Perth artist Amok Island was engaged to design and paint a large-scale mural for the new retaining wall at the MAAC public car park in 2016.
The Creatures of Marmion Marine Park mural depicts a selection of iconic marine fauna found in the Marmion Marine Park area from invertebrates, crustaceans and molluscs, fish and marine mammals.
The artist conducted extensive research including spending time in Marmion Marine Park photographing marine creatures. The artist drew inspiration from vintage scientific identification charts in the creation of the design.
At time of commission, this project was the largest single span artwork in the southern hemisphere.
