Urban Jungle

Location: laneway next to Rydal House, 29 Grey Street

Created as part of the 2018 ‘Love our Laneways’ project.

Urban Jungle is a break from the mould for Jasmine Kroeze. Predominantly a textile and graphic designer, this work is Jasmine's first mural commission and was at the time, her largest work to date - a challenge she tackled while also 20 weeks’ pregnant. Jasmine uses the same techniques for her murals as she does for textile design, which ensures her unique aesthetic is recognisable, no matter the medium.

The location being down a laneway, called for a bright and contrasting colour palette.

Creating the initial concept by paper collage, I was able to play with shapes and colours to get the right balance. As the largest scale artwork that I have worked on, it was imperative to get the scale right. Initially creating the outlines by free-hand directly onto the wall, I then began blocking in each colour.
