This is the new Aldo store that just opened at Westfield Sydney, do you like it? Tim Barnard, the artist was flown out from Montreal to paint the mural of his floating 'treeple' which celebrates nature, life and the outdoors. It's quite unusual that an artist would collaborate on a retail interior and I think that Aldo should be applauded for such a brave and expressive interior so full of personality. It's the human touch of the mural that makes this store so special and unique.
The mural really engages with the customer and exposes artwork to people outside of the gallery environment which is an area of interior design that I am passionate about. The painting creates a canopy of leaves surrounding the customer which is integrated well into the space. I would love to know what you think!
