“The brief was ‘Art that grows, art that flows, and art that glows‘, and I think that’s been captured in the artwork – we’ve got the different sections of the tram representing those things.
Winning artist Cynthia Cabello told myGC what each of the designs on the tram represent.
“The Hinterland, and then suburbia – but really colourful suburbia because it’s multiculturalism – and then of course the lovely sun of gold coast, then the ocean, the surf, and then the coral.
Ms Cabello said she was blown away when she saw her artwork covering the tram.
“I just can’t believe it – it looks so…wow!”
“The thing is that I use the tram a lot, so I’m going to wait until I get into my tram,” she laughed.
