Picasso Apartments,
Mooloolaba Queensland

Picasso is a contemporary apartment development, in Mooloolaba, with an accent on outstanding design and luxury living.  Its 12 three-bedroom sky-home apartments, across seven levels, include a full-floor penthouse, sub penthouse and just two spacious apartments per floor. 

Located 200 metres from the beach, the site has views of both The Glass House Mountains and the ocean of Mooloolaba – and it was the colours and textures of this natural beauty that inspired artist Timothy Birch, who was commissioned to create an artwork on the western exterior of the building.

In keeping with the name of the development – Picasso – Timothy’s line work channels that of Pablo Picasso andthe bright colours, used in small blocks, ensure the piece is clearly visible to the thousands of people who walk and drive by daily.

Timothy named the piece ‘Holding On’, in reference to the huge changes the Sunshine Coast is experiencing in terms of development.  As a local, Timothy wanted to highlight the local community’s sense of ‘holding on’, of wanting to preserve and conserve, at all costs, the beauty of the surrounding mountains, ocean and bush.

He selected more than 50 Wattyl colours to create his unique artwork – it has already become a much-loved landmark within the local community.

Wattyl is a proud supporter of community projects, such as Picasso, that foster a sense of welcome and belonging, as well as an appreciation of nature and its inherent beauty.
