Often D C is contracted by Interior designers and architects to create artworks for various projects, these collaborations have ranged from restaurants to office fitouts, festival activations and more, but to be a part of such a grand design by WMK architecture was a great honour.
The mural painted by D C is a main visual point to the restaurant and adds to the new restaurant, with it’s confident brand identity and bold, youthful interiors, creating a new calibre offering for both the club and the region. Danny was asked to design an artwork that interacted with the audience and conveyed an ‘asian street food scene’ to bring some of that chinese authenticity into the space, which is the foundation of Johnny Fongs, Cantonese cuisine, specialising in Yum Cha and Dumplings.
“I wanted to create an artwork that brought the Chinese street feel into the space. The design gives a new dynamic to that area, the 3 dimensional element gives the illusion that the observer can walk into the scene. The composition of the design draws your eyes and attention into the centre of the artwork to the old couple that have just been to street markets to collect food and flowers. The dripping effect either side adds to the ‘street’ feel an element incorporated to achieve appeal to both an older and younger audience”
Since the restaurant has opened blogs reviews have featured the artwork in their imagery and complimented the design of the restaurant.
Danny was recently asked back to the Mounties group to add more sign writing to the space.
