Earlier this month, we went to Bintulu, Sarawak to paint a mural on a 15 meter by 7 meter wall. The iDrink Sarawak Mural design features a colourful, retro, comic book style to bring colour and life to the space. This warehouse is meant to be the largest iDrink Sarawak branch. We were extremely excited to propose on this giant canvas and paint our first art piece in Bintulu!
Check out our Youtube vlog on this mural! I know, WE ARE BACK ON YOUTUBE!!! SO VERY HAPPY AND EXCITED TO SHARE MORE ART AND VLOGS WITH YOU GUYS, CAN YOU FEEL MY EXCITEMENT THROUGH ALL THESE CAPS?! LOL
BEHIND THE iDrink Bintulu Sarawak Mural DESIGN
Below is the first sketch proposal for the wall. We were given the measurements as 8m x 10m. The Mural features a retro car parked on a beach with people chilling on the car with a cup in hand each. Their faces are covered by things you could do at the large iDrink cafe space such as enjoy yourself, listen to music, read a book or work on you computer. The Chinese text “吾饮良品” is iDrink’s tagline, also a play on Muji’s tagline (same pronunciation with different words and meaning – something that can commonly happen in the Chinese Language).
The design was later changed to 4 males and 1 female representing the shareholders of iDrink Sarawak. The mural was also adjusted to 15 meters by 6 meters instead of the below 8 by 10 meter ratio, and we flipped the red plant wave thing to the left. As mentioned in the video above, there was a platform on the lower right of the ground where our scissor lift wasn’t able to climb, hence the flip! We also moved the clouds to the right and turned them to waves instead. Will post a full picture once the place is done with renovations.
Below are more up close pictures of the iDrink Sarawak Mural in Bintulu.
We hope you enjoyed this mural! We were very excited to paint this as it’s quite different from other mural art we have done previously. Do tag us on instagram #artsydaphy if you drop by! Check out our homepage under Mural Menu for more vibrant art work!
