Head In The Clouds 2 by Fintan Magee

In Brisbane, it’s always cloudy with a chance of genius – something proven by the works of Fintan Magee. A Brisbane local at heart (now internationally renowned for his work), Magee designed the piece as homage to the industrial aspects of Brisbane history. The large-scale mural sits across from The Fox Hotel, on the opposite corner of Fish Lane and Hope Street. It depicts a woman with her face hidden behind clouds of fabric – inspired by discarded cloths found in the abandoned Rocklea Spinning Mills. Paying tribute to an earlier work of Magee’s, the mural represents the de-industrialisation of the South Brisbane area as factories and warehouses disappear, and the face of the area changes.
