Richard Gill Street Art by Ox King

Work has begun on the street art of Richard Gill by local artist, Ox King.

Local artist Ox King, has started work on a new Perfect Match Street Artwork in honour of Richard Gill, a local character and much-loved Australian music conductor and educator.

The Stanmore Music Festival was establish to honour Richard’s vision of a local festival to showcase music in all its forms for everyone to enjoy for free.

This street artwork of Richard Gill is a tribute to his place in music and Stanmore, surrounded by the native flora of area, he is part of the street as much as he is a part of Australian music. The instruments of countless musicians are effortlessly conducted to play the songs he was so passionate and delighted by. The musicians he has taught and inspired over the years are represented by the instruments floating amongst the local flowers, paying homage to the infamous street performance of “The Dam Busters March” outside of his home on Myrtle Street, Stanmore, in 2018.

Commissioned through Perfect Match, matching artists with residents and community to collaboratively produce site specific street artworks.
