including Taylor Swift and Vanessa Hudgens posing between the outspread wings. “The way people have responded to the piece has exceeded my wildest imagination! I love checking on the hashtag each night and seeing how people continue to interact with the wings,” says Kelsey. “I love seeing how people make the piece their own and I love seeing how creative people are.” Kelsey believes the wings have garnered a following because of its fusion of traditional street art and fine art and the piece invites people in. “It achieved its goal of giving people a moment to reflect on what inspires them in their life and I think people have reacted to that,” she says. “How often do you get to look like you’re flying and, at the same time, are asked to share what lifts you up in your life?” Recently, Kelsey spent a day on the Sunshine Coast to paint our very own winged mural featuring images and scenery from the region. The left wing includes a beach house, pandanus tree, a whale, a surfer and the Caloundra Lighthouse, while the right wing includes a magnificent bunya pine, the Glass House Mountains and the Big Pineapple. The artwork will be displayed at the Nambour Civic Centre until 15 April, before moving around to other parts of the Coast. Locals are invited to take photos of themselves with the large pair of beautiful wings and share on social media, don’t forget to hashtag #whatliftsyou. april 2015
