Year of the Ox Mural Installation
2.7 million paper coffee cups end up in Australian landfill every day. This equates to over a billion cups each year.
Putting a spotlight on sustainability, Mirvac Rhodes proudly commissioned VANDAL artists 'GABFZ & WELLS' to create a biodegradable artwork in celebration of Lunar New Year's 'Year of the Ox'.
The massive artwork is not only environmentally conscious, but also makes use of recyclable materials, including the 5000 biodegradable and compostable paper cups used. The cups have a recyclable PLA biopolymer lining made from natural, renewable resources and the paint used is Zero VOC (volatile organic compound) GECA certified paint.
VANDAL artists GABFZ (Gabrielle Filtz) and WELLS (Paul Wells) are two Sydney based artists and art directors with a passion for creating unforgettable art experiences that generate emotion and conversation.
