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 work in together as signwriters, and between them they have 50 years experience in the industry. Phil is one of the few traditional signwriters around today and began his career hand painting signs around the Goldfields with his father, who taught him the traditional method. In his spare time, Phil enjoys rebuilding cars with custom panel and paint work, including airbrushed murals. Emily balances her work life with studying a degree in Psychology. She has a passion for art, theatre and tries to involve herself in as many community projects as she can.
