Sydney artists give the dull space a colorful update turning it into a work of art.

72DP is the name of the project by the Sydney- and New York-based design duo, Craig Redman Karl Maier. The designers have used a private underground parking lot in Sydney, Australia, as the canvas for their large-scale mural. The vibrant colors, intertwined geometric shapes, and low lighting, have turned the concrete gray space into a contemporary and sophisticated installation that can easily be mistaken for an art gallery.

Maier explains that:

The objective of the project was to breathe new life into the space which, having been rendered in concrete with little inlet of natural light, felt quite dark and heavy. The resulting design is a dynamic mix of overlapping geometric forms that mirror and respond to the angularity of the architecture.
