Polish folk art on Sydney streets.

Not so long ago I was comissioned for another public art work by the local council in the Lane Cove area where I live in Sydney. These are electricity boxes that you see by the road side. There are a lot of them around and many Sydney councils have been comissioning artists to paint these. It's wonderful to drive around Sydney and see these random artworks on the sides of roads. My design is heavily influenced by Polish folk art... pretty obvious! If you're in the area these boxes are located on the corner of Epping Rd and Centennial Ave in Lane Cove. Funny story with these was that when I was painting them someone called the police to say that I was vandalising public property! I spoke to the police and explained. No arrests were made and the officers both complimented me on the design. You can see more photos on my Instagram account.

  1. Wow, I love it how beautifully you have embellished these electricity boxes on the street. I wish we could have Thema in Germany as well. They are fantastic!

    1. Danke schon Stefanie! What a lovely comment. I also wish these could be decorated all over the world. We have a lot of them in Sydney and it's wonderful to see so many artists works all around the city.
