Smog-Eating Mural

Cleans the air and looks amazing

We’re committed to striving for a brighter future and have partnered with Graphenstone Paint and artist Nico Nicoson to paint an incredible ‘smog-eating’ mural at our carpark exit. The mural will feature paint that cleans the air by absorbing CO2 (just like planting a tree!).
 
About the artist
Nico is a Sydney-based artist whose works can be found in public spaces and private collections all around the world. Nico’s works are vibrant, bold and highly decorative. Describing his work as “a celebration of the ornamental” Nico is interested in the innate powers of line, shape, space and colour to impact humans emotionally. Nico is interested in creating works using only the most foundational visual elements in order to create pure compositions that harness the full power of the fundamental elements and principals of image-making. Nico’s work references a broad range of styles and movements including Post-painterly Abstraction, Geometric abstraction, Pop art, and Hard-edge painting.
 
How does the paint work?
Calcium, water and carbon dioxide (CO2) react or “carbonate.” This reaction turns the calcium hydroxide into calcium carbonate, otherwise known as lime stone, ultimately locking in atmospheric carbon dioxide. Once this reaction has taken place, the captured CO2 cannot be released back into the environment. Find out more about the paint here.
 
Colour Palette
We’ve even designed our own range of environmental themed colours, which will be used to paint the mural;
Ocean (Dark Blue) - 'Bright Futures: Blue Reef'
Sun  (Yellow) - 'Bright Futures: Solar Yellow’
Nature (Bright Pink) - 'Bright Futures: Bright Pink Gallah'
Air  (Light Blue) - 'Bright Futures: Baby Blue Zephyr'
Trees (Dark Green) - 'Bright Futures: Gum Tree Green'
Flowers  (Baby Pink) - 'Bright Futures: Baby Pink Petal'
