"Life on the South Coast" - Mural Project by Darren Hutchens for the Albany Residential College

I was invited back to my old home town of Albany, where I first started painting murals professionally over 20 years ago, to instal a mural at the Residential College.
The student residents who board there, whilst studying were invited to contribute ideas of what it’s like living on the South Coast. The mural is a response to this and my own memories and revitalises the dull common room space providing a much needed injection of colour and imagery that is both calm and welcoming.
