Internationally-recognised artist Owen Dippie is transforming a wall in Nowra this week.
A wall at the rear of Sturgiss Newsagency will be transformed to feature a portrait of the late artist Arthur Boyd.
Mr Dippie has been painting his large-scale realist portraiture on the streets of New Zealand and New York for over a decade.
During his most recent three-month long trip to New York, he held his first solo exhibition, and had one of his works named as Best Mural 2015 by The Huffington Post, along with Producing his first work in downtown Los Angeles.
“I like to make people feel better about their surroundings. How boring is a normal wall, where it can be something that inspires people and makes them feel better,” he said.
He was commissioned by Shoalhaven City Council’s Nowra Alive innitiative which has resulted in a number of artistic improvements to the town.
