Library Mural Paddington Library - Nadia Hernandez

Artist statement: The library is a place where the imagination unleashes. Where creative possibilities are endless due to the infinite knowledge preserved within the library space. Storytelling, is a design featuring vibrant, playful and memorable cut-outs, in a multi-colour palette, that take you on a whimsical journey. As a child I remember getting lost in my own sense of discovery, looking at forms, nature and the world through fresh eyes using my imagination to create any narrative, this memory inspired my design, as I aim to revisit this sense of excitement. Storytelling harmoniously fits into the Paddington Library, inspired by the furniture and colour palette found within the space, it reflects and ignites the beautiful and relentless creativity found within all children, no doubt inspiring adults in the process!
