Whilst visiting Melbourne last March, I had the privilege of visit Skinner’s Adventure Playground Centre. It was a wonderful, warm and welcoming play space. At the entrance these life-size silhouette murals greeted you.
The children and adults who created them, clearly had a lot of fun in the process. As well as a range of poses, each silhouette provided a little background information about the person who made it:
The code is a creative way of personalising each of the silhouette people. I also rather like the idea of using blackboard paint as the silhouettes so that children could draw or leave messages on the walls/
When walking along the Rio Madrid embankment in Madrid last October, the silhouette murals below were big, bold and eye-catching.
Upon closer inspection. the leaf mural had a detail that was rather interesting. The leaf veins were in fact people!
If I see any more funky silhouette murals I will add them to this blog post. Watch this space!
