Ongoing from April 2018
Pocket Park between Palm Plaza and Lonsdale Street, Dandenong

Cubed Square by Brett Ashby

Ongoing from July 2017
Between Halpin Way and Settlers Square, Dandenong

Local artist Brett Ashby has worked with local students from Dandenong Primary School to bring his artwork 'Transformed' to life. Once a disused substation, the artwork is now a colourful point of interest featuring positive and up-lifting phrases selected by the students.

Upside-Down by Julian Clavijo

Ongoing from June 2017
Warwick Avenue car park, Springvale

“Upside-Down” has transformed the electrical sub-station in Springvale. It is inspired by notions of childhood reminding us to embrace the ‘child like’ feeling that resides in all people and to view the world through a child’s eye; filled with natural happiness, an innate sense of innocence and spontaneity.

Gold Bling by Martin George

Ongoing from May 2015
Halpin Way, Dandenong

This latest instalment comprises a long chain being draped along low, grey landscaping walls on Halpin Way, shining brilliantly in a deep ruddy yellow burnished gold. The work invokes ostentatious jewellery on an industrial scale.

No Fence for Dreams by Julian Clavijo

Ongoing from July 2013
Thomas Street multi-deck car park (exterior), 238 Thomas Street, Dandenong

Julian Clavijo uses the structure of the car park and its architectural façade to explore notions of veiling. Best experienced through an up close walk by the site, this full-colour representation of joy, surprise and pride.

 

I'm On My Way Down by Robbie Rowlands

Ongoing from 2012
Thomas Street multi-deck car park (level 5), 238 Thomas Street, Dandenong

Through a series of precise cuts, this bollard departs from the rhythm of the car park expressed rigidly aligned concrete columns and repetitive architectural structures.

 

The Utilitarian by Robbie Rowlands

Ongoing from September 2011
Palm Plaza Pocket Park, Lonsdale Street, Dandenong

Melbourne based artist Robbie Rowlands has created an extraordinary site responsive sculpture 'The Utilitarian'. Commissioned in 2011, the work rests in a compact park between the press of buildings that connects Lonsdale Street and Palm Plaza in Dandenong.
