Painted bull a first
THE latest art movement taking over the world has just hit Coffs Harbour.
A life-sized bull sculpture has been colourfully painted by artist Aloisia Fenyes and taken up permanent residence at the Park Terrace Restaurant and Cafe on Park Beach Road.
This bull is quite content to sit amongst coffee sippers and diners in the front courtyard cafe and gaze at curious passers by.
An array of artists from all over the world are putting their individual touches on life-sized bovines, an art movement which began in Zurich in 1998 and has spread around 18 cities over Europe including New York and London.
Ms Fenyes, who has exhibited her paintings extensively in both Australia and Europe, first sight- ed painted cows in Prague many years ago when visiting family.
This led her to suggest to the new restaurant proprietor that this would be a delightful idea to revamp the brown and white bull sculpture, the previous restaurant's adornment, into a new spectacular art feature.
"It's witty, it's art, it's fun! And why not here ? a first in Coffs Harbour," Ms Fenyes said.
