Melbourne’s Chapel Street just scored an incredible new peice of street art – and there’s an Augmented reality app to go with it.
Painted by world renowned street artist, Phlegm, the mural was commissioned by Chapel Street Precinct Association for the recent Provocaré Arts Festival.
“This was a great opportunity to showcase the possibilities of exciting new immersive technology on the most iconic street in Australia, and to bring it to the public with interactive murals designed by amazing artists,” said Alec Villarreal, Director of Augmented Reality Experts.
Chapel Street Precinct Association spent two and half years planning this project, which is located on the Love & Lewis building. Built in 1913, it was originally a department store – later, apartments.
To see Phlegm’s artwork come to life, first download Chapel Street Precinct’s free app from either the App store or Google Play. You can find the mural by heading to the Prahran Central Shopping Centre at 321-323A Chapel Street, Prahran – there you will find the mural on the northern wall of The Love & Lewis Building.
