Brisbane Canvas

Brisbane Canvas introduces a rich range of innovative and imaginative commissioned street art to walls, pillars and bridge structures in Brisbane; enlivening our public spaces and celebrating our creative scene.

Brisbane Canvas 2018-19 launched in November with an artwork commissioned for the new Bracken Ridge BMX facility. Design Brisbane commissioned two artists, Cezary Stulgis and Benjamin Reeve to deliver the artwork.

From mid-April 2019, the program will also be delivering curator-led, high calibre contemporary artworks to six sites across Brisbane, including the delivery of two high profile contemporary artworks in Bowen HIlls and South Brisbane, alongside three artworks in Windsor, Sunnybank and Bellbowrie. A fourth suburban artwork is being delivered in Gaythorne as part of the Gaythorne Village Precinct Project.

Council is supportive of the local arts industry and Brisbane Canvas provides opportunities for a growing creative community.
