City Walls #2: MOMO for York Street

An explosion of colour at the Kent Street Underpass by renowned mural artist MOMO

Produced by the City of Sydney

City Walls is a series of surprise street art projects brought to you by Art & About Sydney and Elliott Routledge of Funstudio.

For the second artwork in the brand new City Walls project, one of the world’s most renowned mural artists has transformed a pocket of the dreary Kent Street underpass into a vibrant canvas.

Using his trademark primary colours and love of practical geometry, MOMO has revitalised this pedestrian thoroughfare in downtown Sydney and created a technicolour dream.
Known for being the pioneer of the abstract movements within large scale public art walls, MOMO is an artist working in public spaces with homemade tools. His current interests lie with an evolving range of adapted masonry techniques to draft, design, and organise wall murals.

Born in San Francisco, MOMO has travelled most of his life, lived in New York for six years and currently keeps a studio in New Orleans. He has previously created a double-façade 5 story printed vinyl mural in Manhattan, a 73 metre tall mural in downtown Philadelphia, and a 61 metre long mural between the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges in Brooklyn. This is his first painting in Australia.

Watch out for more City Walls in the coming months springing up in an ever-changing Sydney.
