Two bold new art pieces capturing the essence of the Sunshine Coast’s natural and urban landscape have been unveiled in Maroochydore City Centre, marking an exciting addition to The MET’s Creative Hoarding Program.

The first installation “Excited to See You Here” by the talented local mural artist, Kym Tabulo, serves as a striking representation of Maroochydore’s evolving urban landscape.

Embracing the theme “A Place for People,” Kym’s work is an impressive 6.3 meters long and 2.1 meters high across three panels and explores the connections between humanity, modern architecture and the natural world, emphasising the vitality that’s essential for sustainable urban development.

The installation references the iconic City Hall and draws inspiration from local flora, fauna, coastlines, and architecture, employing photographic layering and digital collage techniques to create a visually stunning representation of Maroochydore’s City Centre’s vision.

The artwork is on display until May as part of your city. our story. initiative which enables people’s ideas, experiences and responses to their future city to be expressed, documented and showcased.

A second installation, titled “Humans In Nature,” is a testament to community collaboration and the rich diversity of the Sunshine Coast biosphere.

Facilitated in workshops by Chony’s Art Room, this legacy piece from BiospHERO Day held on November 3, 2023, is a collage of artworks celebrating the natural wonders and spirit of the Sunshine Coast community. Using the radial leaf pattern from the award winning Sunshine Coast Biosphere logo, Amelia Shaw, Creative Director of Ebb & Flow Studio has designed the final work from individual pieces
made by community participants of all ages and abilities reflecting the native flora, fauna and community of the biosphere.

“We are thrilled to unveil these artworks, which celebrate community spirit and the diverse beauty of the Sunshine Coast. These installations highlight the power of art to inspire, unite, and enrich our community and we invite everyone to visit The MET to see both pieces for themselves,” said SunCentral Maroochydore CEO Amanda Yeates.
