19/4/12 Skull at Melbourne Southbank

There was a skull on the pavement,which was created with pieces of coloured chalk. It was quite dark and was the flower on the forehead and the eyes which captured my attention. This particular skull does feature similar qualities or characteristics to the graffitti skulls in Hosier Lane, although the dark, red eyes significantly contrasts next to the fluro green flower.

The base of the skull is composed with subtle gradients such as the eyes, the golden tooth and the flower, which significantly emphasises these particular areas. The eyes do provide the skull with a sinister appearance although the flower contrasts from the other elements within the image.
