Hello Koala Sculpture Trail

ArtKellie Mobbs

Hello Koalas is a bold and creative sculpture trail on the Mid North Coast of NSW, celebrating the iconic Australian animal, creating awareness and establishing an artist trail of fifty Koalas scattered around the Hastings region. The Trail launches Mid September 2014. 

Bago Studio was asked to paint Bago Blossom the Amaze-ing Koala on behalf of Bago Vineyards and Maze. Bago Blossom is a reflection of the bush magic experienced at Bago Vinyeards/Maze. It encompasses the spirit of the native bush scape and lilly pilly maze surrounded with seasonal grapes. The artwork features the native bottlebrush, waratahs with splashes of wattles and gum leaves through a subtle breeze amongst the spirals of the Bago Maze. The design is a positive statement on Australian Bush and wildlife preservation.
