Move over, Melbourne – Frankston’s street art is getting bigger and better. Leading Australian street artists will transform the Frankston City centre’s skyline at the fourth annual Big Picture Fest. The fest features renowned street artists creating vibrant, edgy and lasting artworks on buildings and in laneways across the Frankston CBD from March 19-21.
Street artist Melanie Caple said she was looking forward excitedly to taking part in this year’s fest. “For the Big Picture Fest I am working with Frankston High School students to develop a large mural, and for it to be successful we are aiming for a high-quality outcome that not only strengthens and extends upon the student artist’s abilities, but also engages the school community and the Frankston community at large,” Melanie said.
“Art has the power to inspire and engage and spark dialogue. I also want it to be a marker for the students who paint it, something that instils pride and connection to place.”
Schools are taking part in the Big Picture Fest thanks to support from the State Government‘s Suburban Revitalisation Program. For more information and updates, visit www.discoverfrankston.com
