With Star 8’s help, Darwin is turning on the colour.

September 2021 will see the start of the annual Darwin Street Art Festival where local, national and international artists have the opportunity to decorate city surfaces with their fantastic murals. Since the festival’s inauguration in 2017, Darwin has been brightened by 45 amazing and unique murals, with an additional 20 expected to be added late 2021.

Walls, jetty posts, footpaths and fences have all been integrated as part of the Darwin Street Art Festival. The murals are as diverse as their canvases. A rainforest, a giant crab, abstract art, a waterfall… even a crocodile.

To support this wonderful event, Star 8 have modified their popular Multi Purpose Solar Light to enable these artworks to be visible at night and thus increase the enjoyment of sightseers.

Beside the enlarged solar panel, cables have been extended and lighting modes adjusted to suit the needs of these unique artworks.

The Star 8 lights are solar powered, easy and inexpensive to install. A terrific green solution. As a company who strives for innovation, we love being able to adapt our lights to support the individual needs of our clients. We are so excited to be a part of ‘Activate Darwin’ and partner with them on this journey.

We can’t wait to see what artistic expressions the 2021 festival will display, but whatever this year’s artists have in mind, Star 8 will be there to light the night.
