Fine art was the order of the day at the 23rd World Congress on Â Intelligent Transport Systems with the unveiling of Urban landscape: Clem7.
The piece, acrylic paint on aluminum substrate, was painted by Zestâ€™s internationally awarded Artist Jenny McCracken. The artwork, commissioned by Logix Engineering, was completed on site to attract return visitors to the companyâ€™s exhibition stand throughout the four day conference.
â€˜Clem7â€™ was inspired by Australian realist painter Jeffrey Smart and incorporated Logixâ€™ raw materials and engineering skills. The artwork depicts a well known rail bridge in inner city Brisbane which is heavily graffitied. The animals depicted in the foreground are Italian greyhounds, much loved pets of the client. Â
Measuring 3 metres by 1.6 metres, the masterpiece was auctioned for charity at the world congress awards night and raised $10,000 for a Topu Honis Shelter Homes in Oecussi Timor Leste. â€˜Clem7â€™ now hangs in a private residence in Brisbane, Australia.
Limited edition prints are now being sold to support the charity.
