Garden Pop Bird Bop, Lendlease for Barangaroo

Garden Pop Bird Bop, Lendlease for Barangaroo
01 January 2020

With Garden Pop Bird Pop, Emily Crockford clad her charming depictions of animal and plant life on one of the largest canvases of her career — a temporary hoarding wall that reached along Hickson Rd in the Barangaroo precinct (then under development).

The mural measured 160m long and some 2m high and was well placed in a busy city corridor (where it quickly won the hearts of locals and visitors alike). At every stage, Emily worked with consistent regard for the requirements of her commissioner, Lendlease, to beautify an otherwise barren aspect of construction vehicles and honour the company’s goal of greening the industrial zone.

Garden Pop Bird Pop supplied Barangaroo with a fantasia of birds and boughs and partly anticipated the wildlife that would soon take up residence in the park. She also included a hanging Koala, thereby re-homing an endangered icon long since driven from the custodial lands of Sydney city.
