  • Stakeholders and partners: City of Vincent
  • Role of Artsource: Art Consultant
  • Artists: Mark Datodi
  • Outcome: Implementation of a percent for art project
  • Artwork budget: $27,800
  • Completion date: July 2013


Through a curated shortlist, the developer has commissioned Mark Datodi to produce external wall art panels for the mixed use development in Perth. Located at the top of China Town in Northbridge, the building sits within the City of Vincent boundary. Within the city’s development guidelines, the percent for art component of the project must reference the significant heritage of the area.

Datodi has focused on the Asian community’s involvement in this busy precinct and, in particular the Chinese community. The Chung Wah Association was invited to review the selection of ideas presented in concept interviews. The artwork panels will be made from 4-6 mm aluminum and have a painted or anodized finish. The work will be installed July 2013.
