Vans the Omega Brings Wolverine to the East End

Prolific local street artist Vans the Omega is beginning work on a large-scale mural promoting the next instalment of Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine franchise, Logan.

In a deal struck by Twentieth Century Fox and Well Made, a South Australian arts commissioning service run by Guildhouse, Vans the Omega will put together a large-scale mural promoting the film over the next two days.

The wall, at 26 Vardon Avenue in Adelaide’s East End, has been donated to the project by property and development company Maras Group. Guildhouse Acting Executive Director Victoria Bowes said Well Made is “very pleased to have been able to facilitate the commission.”

“It’s fantastic to see a local artist incorporated into the promotion of such an international event,” said Bowes.

Speaking with The Adelaide Review, Kathryn McGowan, a publicist for Twentieth Century Fox who was instrumental in soliciting work through Well Made, confirms this mural forms “part of a national campaign from Fox to promote Logan with local artists from across the country,”

“It’s a great initiative on their part, and great for local artists,” says McGowan.

Work by Vans the Omega can be found all over the Adelaide CBD and surrounds. Omega has also been commissioned to complete numerous works across Australia and even internationally.

Fans of street art and/or Wolverine can check out Vans the Omega’s work in progress on Vardon Avenue.

Well Made is a Guildhouse initiative supported by the South Australian Government through Arts South Australia.

The Adelaide Review is a proud media partner of Well Made.
