Third time’s a charm for local Brisbane artist Gimiks Born, whose latest mural of a young woman enchanting a fox with her violin, has not only brightened up the Albion rail corridor in Brisbane, but also tells a deeper story.
Queensland Rail Positive pARTnerships team member Dan Brock said the artist’s third painting on the rail network, titled ‘The Fox and her song’, is interactive for the public.
“We welcome this third captivating art piece on our network created by local artist Gimiks Born, with prior artworks ‘The Astronaut and Tiger’ at Bowen Hills Station and ‘The Knight and her Falcon’ at Robina,” he said.
“The vibrant murals focus on red-headed female protagonists and their bond with animal companions and for the first time the artist is linking the murals together through a graphic novel online for the public to enjoy.
“This is all part of Queensland Rail’s Positive pARTnerships program which is about connecting with local artists to produce high quality art projects which beautify our stations and build community pride and ownership.
“To date, the Positive pARTnerships Program has delivered 289 projects which cover more than 39,499 square metres across the Queensland Rail network, including on station buildings and subways,” he said.
Born said that while he has 19 other murals throughout Brisbane City, none are as interactive as the three on the rail network.
“The mural at Albion, The Fox and Her Song, spans 35 meters in length and has a total surface area of 289 square metres and was painted with the help of local artist Joel Fergie in two weeks,” he said.
“It was inspired by the idea of portraying a single red headed female throughout a triptych of walls, and this wall being the final piece to her story. Each piece is very different but connected by this familiar character, and the underlying narrative that will be revealed.
“Once per week for six weeks, two illustrated comic pages will be publicly released online to read via a custom-made webpage, revealing the tale of all three mural artworks.”
