Me & Uoo Uoo - Royal Children's Hospital
"Art Can Change Your World"
In April 2020, I was successful in becoming one of the artists to be selected in painting a "Uoo Uoo" as part of the Royal Children's Hospital 150th Anniversary. My Uoo Uoo was named "Art Can Change Your World".
Whilst the world was locking down around us due to the pandemic, we were tucked away in a warehouse painting the statues (at a safe distance). The arts trail was meant for September 2020, but was postponed to January to April 2021.
My Uoo Uoo had the DREAM location, as was situated in the Queen Victoria Gardens, Melbourne, right across from the National Gallery Victoria, Melbourne.
It was then auctioned off for a whopping $11,000.00 donated straight to the Royal Children's Hospital.
This has been one of the most important and meaningful projects I have been involved with throughout my career.
My Uoo Uoo was painted with a combination of Taubmans, Mont Marte and Jo Sonja's paint, coated with anti-graffiti varnish.
