Fitzroy Deerhunters

I recently moved away from my beloved Fitzroy; I’ve been missing its bustle + energy, so I was very pleased to have been asked to paint some walls, back in the middle of Fitzroy.

The venue, Amigos on Brunswick St, had some plain grey + wallpapered walls that needed some creative attention. I was given free rein to create whatever I thought was appropriate for the space. Although Amigos is operating as a Mexican restaurant, I thought it would be a great space for some characters that have little/nothing to do with Mexico. Over the course of a few days, I transformed the rear of the space from a clean, crisp grey restaurant to a moody home for a couple of deerhunters.  I painted a crumpled, awkward hunter on the wall above the fantastic, warm fireplace:

I also painted a disrobing hunter on the wall near the beautiful Victorian staircase:

The paintings have dramatically changed the feel of the space, + I look forward to viewing them once the lighting has been redesigned + the space is complete.

Once I finished painting, some close friends + I colonised the table closest to the fire, + feasted under the watch of the two large, new Fitzroy deerhunters. It was a fantastic end to a fun few days painting back in beautiful Fitzroy.

The deerhunters are very visible from both Brunswick + Argyle streets, so you do not have to enter the restuarant to see them. However, I recommend that you go inside, +  have some Tequila + super Mexican inspired food (I recommend the stuffed jalapenos, the fajitas + the amazing brownie drowned in sizzling chocolate sauce) while checking out the paintings.
