He and internationally-known graffiti artist Dr Zadok take inspiration from places of local or personal relevance with Wicks also dipping into tutti-frutti colour palettes, tropical plants, archival photography and 50s print design, while Dr Zadok brings a sense of playfulness between the real and surreal and a love of drawing flora and fauna. Hicks led the creative direction of the murals, which used MOLOTOW™ PREMIUM spray paint to get the right colors and feel.
