Giant reef artwork unveiled at Brisbane Airport

A new outdoor playscape featuring giant colorful fish inspired by Queensland’s Great Barrier Reef has been unveiled as the finishing touch to the A$30m Skygate expansion project at Brisbane Airport in Australia.

The child-friendly artwork by Cairns artist Brian Robinson is located at the new entrance of the Direct Factory Outlets (DFO) development, which includes 30 new DFO stores, alfresco dining, offices and a multi-level parking garage. Titled ‘Woven Wonders of the Reef’, the artwork provides an interesting structure for children to interact with during a visit to the shopping complex.

Julieanne Alroe, CEO and managing director for Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC), the airport operator, said, “Major art pieces can really transform public spaces and we’ve found that the millions of passengers and visitors traveling to and through the airport every year really appreciate and engage with the artworks on display.

“From the recently unveiled 2,460ft long ‘Sensory Hug’ by the late Sally Gabori in the International Terminal Arrival’s Hall and the nine-story kinetic façade adorning our Domestic Terminal car park, to ‘Keep the Sunshine’ by Sebastian Moody, each of these pieces shares a story about our city or state.

“It is a great honor to have Brian Robinson’s colorful creation showcasing the beauty of Queensland’s world-famous Great Barrier Reef as part of Brisbane Airport’s collection.”
