Adelaide Central Market’s New Murals

The Adelaide Central Market commissioned both Lucinda Penn and creative supergroup (Tiff Rysdale, Jade Harland and Ryan Turner) to paint two new murals at the Market.

Both murals are now completed for the community to experience and enjoy, with Lucinda’s mural – ‘I Think of the Colours of the Market’ located at the Gouger Street entrance and Malicious Delicious’ mural – ‘Market Daydream’ located at the Grote Street entrance.

The Market received some amazing submissions and they loved the top two so much, both were chosen and painted. They also received an overwhelming amount of interest and positive feedback on both submissions from the Adelaide community and more broadly.

Jade Harland, Tiff Rysdale and Ryan Turner are a creative supergroup who have joined forces to bring life to the walls of Adelaide. The team have previously collaborated on work in retail settings, bringing together Ryan’s background of illustration and design with Tiff and Jade’s visual art skills. Their work seeks to capture the spirit and cultural heritage of its location.

Designing a mural for the Adelaide Central Market was an exciting opportunity for the team. From the gorgeous aromas of fresh produce and paella cooking to the vivid colours of local fruit and veg. Australian flora blooming at the flower stands, fresh fish wrapped in newspaper and the welcoming faces of the passionate people working behind the stalls. Their aim was to depict the many facets of this bustling centre.

Lucinda Penn ‘I Think of the Colours of the Markets’ mural – Gouger Street entrance:

Lucinda says

“when I think about the Central Market, I’m taken back to my first memory of visiting them on my year 3 French class excursion to taste French cuisine. I remember my eyes being opened to the many multi-cultural offerings. We couldn’t help spending our pocket money trying things from all over the world rather than only from France! I think of my dad journeying from the hills to the markets just to buy the freshest organic veggies. I think of holding my younger sister’s hand, guiding her around the buzzing, packed maze on a busy Friday night with my family. I think of my partner’s Saturday morning after tennis laksa ritual with his dad growing up. I think of the colours of the markets. The bright veggies poking out of perfectly organised rows in every corner. The green bowls on red tables at Asian Gourmet. The rich pinks and oranges of the Turkish Delight Shop. The bold contrasting black and white diamond tiles in Marino Meats. The abundance of colourful native flowers. The creamy cheeses looking back at me on display. The list goes on…

I have captured this multicultural rainbow in my design. It celebrates the energy of our diverse Adelaide Central Market with imagery that directly represents it as one of the largest traditional undercover produce markets left in the Southern Hemisphere. By collaging contrasting pieces of produce, the array directs you into the markets to find all of these goodies. My design is unique to other murals in the area and will become synonymous with the markets as a direct reflection of not only what’s on offer but the bustling, bright and lively atmosphere we love”.
