FORM’s #PUBLIC2015 saw Perth’s own Stormie Mills transform a wall at Central TAFE in Leederville and speak as part of the inaugural PUBLIC Symposium.
The central event for #PUBLIC2015 hosted a range of speakers from around the globe who took to the stage at the State Theatre of WA across Symposium’s three days to discuss the value of creativity in building dynamic communities. Stormie spoke about the influence that art and the global cityscape has had in shaping and developing his practice and the idea of creativity coming full circle, alongside acclaimed artists Nandita Kumar and Ian Strange who then all took part in a panel discussion with FORM’s Chair Paul Chamberlain and Andrew King.
After speaking about having been inspired by the urban art scene of New York and London in the 80’s and of his gratitude for an event such as PUBLIC thrusting Perth into the global art arena, Stormie finished painting his work titled “We are all connected”.
