Congratulations to Daniel Wallwork who has been selected as Artist in Residence for Lendlease’s new Yarrabilba community in Queensland. As Artist in Residence Daniel Wallwork will be developing a new public artwork commission for the Yarrabilba community.

The Yarrabilba project is a Lendlease master-planned community situated approximately 40 kilometres south-east of Brisbane and approximately 30 kilometres north-west of Southport.

In 2015 Lendlease developed a comprehensive public art strategy for the new Lendlease community of Yarrabilba. The strategy proposes a sustainable public art program for Yarrabilba’s community, to be developed and delivered over a 30 year period.

The Display Village artwork will be developed during Daniel Wallwork’s time as Artist in Residence with the community. The artworks will result in play-based forms that reflect Yarrabilba’s layered history and community aspirations for the future.

With a background in the automotive spraying trade, Daniel Wallwork is an artist whose practice is strongly influenced by contemporary car culture and street art.
