Magee’s Migration mural complete

THE massive Luna Palace mural is complete with Sydney-based artist Fintan Magee laying down the final strokes on Tuesday.

A projector and a cherry picker were needed to create the 30-metre piece—the biggest in Vincent—with the cost split between Vincent city council and Luna.

Magee says he uses regular acrylic housepaint to get that painterly effect, influenced by South American and European styles.

The piece is called The Migration, and depicts a man struggling along with the weight of his old life on his back, inspired by the big part immigration plays in Perth’s story.

Magee’s previously painted in Miami, Moscow, Buenos Aires, Copenhagen, and Vienna.
