Over 5 days in March a life size whale was painted on the side of Richmond Station.
The concept was created by local artist Mike Makatron in conjuction with friends Dick Fineman, Plea and Dem189 from France.
Sitting directly under the railway tracks it’s body is stretched open to reveal the internal organic and mechanical workings, the organic grey mammal is filled with everything from cogs to tentacles and reflects the opposite of the heavy steel cabins carrying the humans above.
Rich in improvisation, the collaboration of 4 artistic heads combined make one epic mural.
The wall is 60 meters wide with an average height of 6 meters.
And be sure to check out Mike Maka and his solo show at the Tate Gallery in Sydney on Wednesday April 17th.
