'Painting our Future' - Hastings Climate Change Mural
About the artwork
‘Painting our Future’ was commissioned Mornington Peninsula Shire as an innovative project to raise awareness and inspire community action on climate change. Internationally renowned artist Julian Clavijo transformed a grey wall opposite the Hastings Library into a striking 40m work of art that communicates both a word of warning of the challenge we face from climate change as well as an uplifting message of hope for our future. Julian mixes spray painting skills with traditional brushwork techniques to create works of art that empower young people to visualise a world where they can make a difference.
