BRISBANE STREET ART FESTIVAL // CLAIRE FOXTON
Brisbane Street Art Festival is a new event on the books but one that is already bursting at the seams with colour and creativity. This year, BSAF was held across 25 different locations across Brisbane, delivering a platform for both artists and the community to engage and contribute to a growing creative industry right in the heart of Brisbane City. Aside from large-scale mural work, BSAF held the likes of music, theatre, light shows, numerous exhibitions, creative master classes, workshops and multiple public forums just to name a few. Our friend, Claire Foxton, flew over to hit the bricks and bring some magic to Brisbane. With a background in painting, drawing and graphic design, Claire Foxton brings a mix of abstraction and realism to create works full of soft colour palettes and character.

POSTCARDS FROM… ST PETERS
There is beauty in the mundane. The way we look at the world is crucial in finding contentment. Every corner of a city, from the cracks in the footpath to a train charging past, make up something that can’t be easily replicated. They make up authenticity and culture. It’s easy to overlook the small things, but its the small things that build a city. Every detail sits in its place and makes up so many beautiful stills, almost postcard-like scenes of nothing.
