  • The artist/s can bring their own equipment – hats, umbrellas, water, chairs – everything they need to successfully and comfortably complete the work.
  • This project is likely to get messy, so an appropriate clothing, aprons, and goggles are also a good idea to have.

EXECUTION DETAILS

  • The artist/s will work directly with organizer to establish a schedule for painting the mural, starting on the 3rd week of June.
  • Once selected, artist/s has 1-2 weeks to complete the painting.
  • With the summer heat, be aware of harsh weather conditions, safety when using ladder, or being around harsh painting fumes for extended periods of time.
  • Working during late hours may be a safety issue. We will not be providing security for after dark painting. But rest assured that the location is at a safe area in Orchard.

ARTIST REMINDERS

The chosen artist/s must understand the right steps of scaling a small drawing to the mural space of 7.50 metres (width) x 2.20 metres (height).

  • One technique is to divide the design and the wall into proportional grids (via Arte style of painting). Another technique is to bring own projector, which will display the design directly on the wall surface. This is up to and provided by the artist/s if she/he chose to do so.
  • The chosen artist/s have the freedom to execute the chosen entry in any technique.
