Seven talented Ipswich artists will be making their debut at the Brisbane Street Art Festival and their murals will be showcased across the city for two days this August 2020.
Fintan Magee, Emily Devers, Ash Taylor, Gus Eagleton, Jordache, Styna and Rachael Sarra are the first group of artists to get involved in this festival’s five-year history. They’ve been painting in different areas around the city from 27 July until 2 Aug 2020.
If you’re keen to check out their work, mark these sites for the public viewing on 8 to 9 Aug. 2020, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The artists will also be on-site to engage the viewers. However, everyone is expected to observe social distancing and other safety protocols against virus transmission.

Lincoln Savage, the Brisbane Street Art Festival director, said that Ipswich’s urban spaces provide these artists “a unique canvas” to “highlight the local culture and history” as well as develop new stories that will enhance and reinvigorate the CBD.
