The Galeries Triumphant Prosperity Series

Mural artist Alex Lehours was commissioned by Wild Minded to create a series of canvas works for The Galeries, Australia, to celebrate Lunar New Year.

The Galeries is a premium shopping precinct and lifestyle destination for fashion, food, art and music. There is nowhere else in Sydney where you can find an inner city hub with such a diverse mix of boutiques and retailers housed in one space.

The ultimate challenger brand, The Galeries is purpose built to provide an alternate retail experience to the existing offerings. They immerse shoppers in unforgettable retail experiences, inspired by the new and emerging. They push the boundaries, taking a chance on the unproven.

Triumphant Prosperity is a celebration of the traditions and beliefs of the concept of good luck and fortune within in the Chinese culture. As an artist my work can be best described as an explosion of wild, eccentric chaos. For this series I wanted to combine my contemporary style with a more traditional influence from Chinese art. The wild nature of my works contrasts the more classic and conventional influence of Chinese art and within these pieces a harmonious balance can be found between what can be described as opposing elements and styles.”
