Water Wonderland

A new piece of public art with explosions of colour and contour has been created in Greenwood Plaza in November 2020. The colourful mural is a reflection on the joy of summertime and is inspired by the North Sydney landscape and views from this side of the harbour.

The mural (Water Wonderland) was created over the course of a week by artist Shannon Crees (main picture) and can be found on the ground floor of Greenwood Plaza, opposite Bakers Delight. The mural will be in place for all to enjoy until the end of the summer.

Shannon Crees is an accomplished artist who has exhibited extensively both locally and internationally in New York, Tokyo and London. Shannon’s many accomplishments include having work displayed at the Museum of Contemporary Art for Australian Fashion Week, exhibiting her portrait of the Honorary Lord Mayor, Clover Moore in ‘Salon des Refuses’ at S.H. Ervin Gallery and being the only Australian artist included in the high profile line up of ‘the best graffiti artists in the world’ at ‘Banksy’s Cans Festival 2’ in London.

“My artwork can be a reaction to my immediate environment or an attempt to depict the vivid landscape of my dreams,” Shannon said.

Her artworks playfully flirt with surrealism in her elaborately decorative process. Her collaged patterns and bold colours depict an abstract interpretation of the things she finds most beautiful.

This mural has been commissioned by NTH SYD and North Sydney Council in partnership with Greenwood Plaza and Musicland.
