International graffiti artist brightens Gladstone nightclub
INTERNATIONAL graffiti artist Sofles is like a cyclone - he bursts in, whips up a storm and leaves behind a trail of destruction.
But what he left behind last week on the walls of a local nightclub in Gladstone was nothing short of incredible.
In just six hours, Sofles created a mural of four different images in the new entertainment room at MIe Place Niteclub (formally Bojangles).
He began at 9pm and finished at 3am, then hopped on a plane to his next destinations in New Zealand and Norway.
Sofles sprays his way across surfaces all over the world to create colourful and life-like pieces of art that brighten up a room.
The mural he created at MIe Place shows a vibrant red racing car, a bar, two girls playing pool, a security guard and a huge image of a beautiful woman.
MIe Place owner Aodhan McCann said although it took five months to secure Sofles in Gladstone, it was worth the wait.
"It was really interesting. It's all about how you spray the bottle - he's got all different nozzles," he said.
"I was really happy with it. It's the first of my renovations."
