A far cry from the accusation that Queensland is still warming up to street art, the Gold Coast is embracing the art form and finding a new home for street art in the shopping plaza. Robina Town Centre has been transformed into a canvas by internationally renowned artist RONE, aka Tyrone Wright.

Spanning 90 metres wide and eight metres high, the installation is the largest completed by the Melbourne based artist, exceeding in scale his gigantic nine-storey mural in Melbourne.
