Clara Street Art, Newtown

Clara Street, Newtown – Street Art, Newtown – Artist; Captain Earwax


Captain Earwax’ 2014 Newtown Mural ‘The Drummer’ was commissioned by the Inner West Council as part of the Perfect Match program. Captain Earwax’s works are formed through deconstructed figures and shapes

“This Artwork is an exploration of portraiture and abstraction. In illustrative style, a playful contour line makes references to Modernism and Abstract Expressionism. (Daniel) O’Toole builds deconstructed figures from shapes and colours that are often warm and autumnal”

“The music references links to the Artist’s name ‘EARS’ and to the resident Drummer, Ben, with a small record player and a pair of drumsticks inside the front pocket”

Sydney’s Inner West Council Perfect Match ‘Edge Street Art’ in Public Places program matched “Artists with residents and community to collaboratively produce site specific Street Art” #perfectmatchinnerwest #EDGEinnerwest
