Stay Bold, Stay Gold 2018
“Adding to our theme from last year, we aimed to create a piece that represented Kalgoorlie utilising our traditional signwriting style. The portraits of Paddy Hannan and CY O’Connor we thought would be at home in our CBD and we chose a quote to inspire those walking past to remember to shine bright and be proud of themselves and Kalgoorlie.”
Father-daughter team Phil and Emily Braham have worked together as sign writers, and between them, they have fifty years experience in the industry. Phil is one of the few traditional sign writers working today. Phil began his career hand painting signs around the Goldfields with his father, who taught him the traditional method. Phil also enjoys rebuilding cars with custom panel and paintwork, including airbrushed murals. Emily balances her work life with studying a degree in psychology. She has a passion for art and theatre and is involved in many community projects.
