140 Transforms with Street Art

1031artTwelve artists have been brought together to turn 140, a Perth CBD shopping center, into a work of art during its multi-million dollar transformation.

Nationally recognized artists including Phibs, Andy Quilty, Anya Brock, Amok and Pip McManus will take their place exhibiting alongside emerging local artists for 140 ART. It’s an urban art campaign that will take over shopfronts and walls outside the center, turning them into the artists’ canvas.

The works will embrace the techniques of street art—aerosol, stenciled, hand-drawn or acrylic, but the artists have been hand-picked to complement existing retail concepts in the district.

Phibs, a nationally-recognized artist with work in the National Gallery of Australia, will headline the campaign. He will also create a permanent large-scale outdoor piece to carry on at the center even after the 140 Art campaign ends.

“The Graffiti and Street Art movement is here to stay and only getting stronger. It has been embraced by many countries around the world and it’s great to see some of the major cities around Australia acknowledging and supporting it. It’s refreshing to see people’s changing views on the artistic merit of this energetic movement, especially in the context of retail property such as 140,” Phibs said.

Shoppers who enjoy the work enough to Instragram it with the appropriate tag will have a chance to win one of 12 signed and framed prints from the participating artists.
