Last month UAP were fortunate to have artist Lisa Uhl work with our design and workshop teams to create concepts for an upcoming exhibition. Born in 1976, Lisa Uhl is a Mindi Rardi artist living in Fitzroy Crossing in the West Kimberley area of Western Australia. Her language group is Wangkatjunka. Lisa’s paintings speak of the humidity and expanse of the Kimberley and her work is represented by Mangkaja Art Centre.
UAP recently manufactured and installed the artwork 'Preservation' for renowned ceramic artist Mel Robson, commissioned for Brisbane City Council. The artwork is installed along the bicycle path at C.T. White Park, Kangaroo Point.
Our award winning street furniture and playscapes offer clients specialty designed solutions that integrate easily with the landscape, are robust against wide-ranging Australian environments and hardwearing for longevity.
UAP has recently delivered a series of cast bronze and mosaic tiled artworks as part of the project Ilgarijiri - Things Belonging to the Sky. Ilgarijiri is the first project by Yamaji Art to be recognised both domestically and internationally. Over the past twenty-four months, Yamaji Art have undertaken a collaborative project with astronomers of the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR) which explores Aboriginal art and astronomy.
Urban Art Projects was recently commissioned by Signtime, on behalf of the client, the University of Townsville to create a series of customised plaque stands. Each stand is made of cast aluminium, and features a simple folded flap upon which to place each plaque. Originally the client envisaged a more detailed timber pattern, however UAP offered an alternative pattern in order to keep within the client's budget.
Located in the heart of Sydney's CBD, The Residence Hyde Park is the result of a refurbishment of the former NSW Police Headquarters into a prestigious residential precinct. UAP were comissioned by Hutchinsons Builders for their clients Pamada, Galileo and AMP Capital Investments to manage the public art project in alignment with the city of Sydney Public Art policy. The Artist appointed was Sarah Robson, who created a piece titled ‘Calais Deviations’, designed to engage with the building, pedestrian viewers and the surrounding environment as well as existing historical monuments.
