In 2015, Gillie and Marc jumped at the chance to join world famous street artists such as Lister, Mulga and Birdhat bring their work to Bondi as part of the Activated Walls Project.
On the first Monday of every month, both established and emerging artists are invited to paint murals on various Bondi locations as a way to breathe life into urban environments. As Bondi locals themselves, Gillie and Marc loved playing tribute to sunshine, waves and buff bodies. They painted their iconic Dogman and Rabbitgirl on the popular Italian café, La Piadina. Owner, Fausto Zizioli personally wrote to them, “Thank you! Firstly it was a great pleasure to meet you in person. We really love the soul you put on our walls.”
Even though their mural has been painted over to make way for more artists to join in, one of Gillie and Marc’s Lost Dogs sculptures proudly sits on top of the café wall, where he spends countless days soaking up the rays, people watching.
