Cathedral Square is proudly supporting R U OK? day with the installation of a large scale mural artwork to share this year’s message: ‘Are they really ok? Ask them today.’

In partnership with Perth artist, Luke O’Donohoe the installation encourages everyone to meaningfully connect with the people around them and start a conversation that could change a life.

Thursday 9th September is a national day of action, reinforcing the importance of staying connected with your friends, family and colleagues through all life’s ups and downs, big or small.

Visit Cathedral Square to view the artwork, bring a friend, enjoy a free coffee on us (this Thursday 9th September from 10AM at Telegram*) and start a conversation.

Luke O’Donohoe is a Western Australian artist centring his practice on large scale murals and public art. His work has a definitive typographic lean and is influenced heavily by the age old craft of signwriting. Luke draws on a variety of sources for inspiration, chief amongst them graffiti, signwriting, typography, advertising and design as well as more traditional art movements. He has synthesized these inspirations; The result being vibrant, balanced and compelling paintings usually one part typography, one part abstract composition, one part figurative painting. Previous clients include FORM, Watercorporation, City of Vincent, City of Stirling, Quairading CRC, Mukinbudin CRC and Gage Roads.
