Hidden Gem at dwell East End Adelaide

dwell East End Adelaide in collaboration with the local artist Tapiwa Hwata

dwell East End Adelaide, home of 300 international and domestic students, opened in January 2019 and, since then, had been looking to add some personality to its building, creating a vibrant space that its residents and visitors love. They were soon delighted by the vibrant, colourful, friendly and meaningful style of the young local artist Tapiwa Hwata.

In the summer of 2019-2020 Australia was deeply hit by the bush􀃕res. dwell was committed to help to alleviate some of the pain the community was feeling; the team organised several campaigns and dwell community response was so emotive, that they decided to honour their commitment with a mural that expresses the significance of Australia’s unique flora and fauna.

The strong message contained in the image is very close to the heart of all Australians and visitors. The design captures the famous Australian Eucalyptus tree and the most beloved Australian animal: the koala.
