Streets paved in Gold 2017
“Phil designed ‘Streets paved in Gold’ in his traditional signwriting style. He wanted the piece to be something that could’ve been on a Kalgoorlie window 30 years ago. The piece includes his own original hand lettered fonts developed from scratch in the 80's.”
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.
