Urban OasisThe artwork is based upon a description of the Gold Coast. Each element is representing the characteristics of our city and appealing to the culture that is urbanised, but warm and relaxing. The girl illustrated as the main character will be eye catching and entities the attractive atmosphere of the Gold Coast. The Group of buildings at the centre represents Surfers Paradise, which is also surrounded by tropical plants to describe its botanical heritage. The koala climbs up the Q1 building is reminiscent of a scene from King Kong and this illustrates how the Gold Coast has developed into a big city. The bottom section appeals to the world ’s interest in the surfing culture of the Gold Coast. The entire artwork created illustrates both city side and nature side to let all visitors to the Gold Coast know they are in the perfect urban oasis.🐨
