Art Project

The Clock Hotel Mural

This year’s mural art project at The Clock Hotel will be created by artist, Kim Siew, and commissioned by Hawke’s Brewing Co. for the Heart of Surry Hills festival on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th of November.

For this project, Siew will create a temporary interactive mural artwork on the tiled wall on the Collins St side of The Clock, celebrating the environmental achievements of former Australian Prime Minister, Bob Hawke, who poured the very first Hawke’s Lager at The Clock Hotel in 2017.

As part of Hawke’s Brewing Co.’s commitment to carrying on the Hawke legacy, the independent brewery has raised over $350,000 for their charity partner, Landcare Australia, helping to support community-based environmental projects around the country. Kim Siew’s mural will celebrate Hawke’s environmental legacy in spectacular colour — think Western Tailed Pygmy Possums, gum leaves, gum nuts, wattle and waratahs!

Kim Siew is a mural artist and illustrator living on Gadigal land, Sydney Australia. Her work is bold, playful, full of people and patterns and created with the sole intention of bringing a smile to your day.

Check out the mural as Kim Siew creates art in real time on Saturday the 26th and Sunday the 27th of November at The Clock Hotel.
