Stormie Mills’ bunnies bound into Brisbane
Since Friday August 23, Brisbane’s inhabitants have been noticing some vibrant pink structures popping up in public spaces.
If you’ve been questioning the peculiar manifestation of gargantuan bunnies in your local precinct recently, you may be comforted to hear that these sights aren’t generated by your imagination. Brisbane Festival has called on the ingenuity of internationally renowned artist Stormie Mills to create the large-scale street art project, which will continue to colour the city throughout September.
So far, The Stormie Mills Project bunnies have appeared at a variety of locales, including Westfield Carindale, Kent Street in Woolloongabba, Queen Street Mall, University of Queensland’s Great Court and around Eagle Street in Brisbane City. Clues as to where the next installation pieces will appear can be found on Brisbane Festival’s social media channels – and those who can spot the structures first are being rewarded.
Stormie’s varied works depict the human condition and the struggle to find personal identity within society’s confines. Although Stormie’s work has previously stuck to a muted palette of grey, black and white, this atypical and colourful project is a continuation of the artist’s quest to examine the human condition. You can use the hashtags #TheStormieMillsProject and #bnefest to participate in the interactive project.
