Wall art: X Cargo, Brisbane


The Flamingo
Complete, one of 3 pieces for X Cargo, Fortitude Valley. 


X Cargo is located in the heart of Fortitude Valley, Brisbane. Within the maze of bright white shipping containers stands 3 walls that bring the venues message to life. 

The walls were completed over a number of sessions; the X Cargo logo + Bee wall, the Social wall and the iconic Flamingo. Each wall takes 4 - 7 days to complete, depending on how much prep work the wall needs prior to the focal piece beginning. 

The X Cargo walls are 2-stories high and a total of 550m2 of painting was done.  

To complete this project, artists Lee Harden and Tony Lee teamed up and bought their two unique talents to life. 

Lee is an internationally-renowned aerosol artist, but has mastered large scale photorealistic brush painting over the last few years.

Tony specialises in type and signwriting, as well as being an accomplished artist in his own right.  

Their two unique talents delivered an excellent result for the venue, and the free marketing traction the venue receives from patrons posting the art to social media has paid off in spades.
