    'For Loving Yourself' for Pride Mural by Jeff McCann



      Jeff McCann @jeffmccann

      Jeff McCann is a Gadigal (Sydney) based creative who works between the visual and performing arts through a wide range of mediums including public art, illustration and artwork licensing, workshops and product design. Their innovative practice strives to create inclusive work that encourages his audience to get involved. Jeff’s choice to work with primarily recycled materials like cardboard, creates a playful and tactile quality to his work. Jeff enjoys the challenge of taking what is considered “rubbish” and transforming it into something new and of value again. His illustrative style draws inspiration from childhood nostalgia, world building, games and the natural environment. Utilising pattern, colour and surreal composition to create work that is energetic, bold and confident.


      The work is a giant heart trophy that Jeff has given to himself in celebration of embracing his queerness and loving who he has become. Being bold, being bright and confident is at its core. The eye is a recurring motif in Jeff's work representing the "ah-ha moment" he had when he realised he did not have to create traditional art that he grew up surrounded by. Jeff forges his own path and lives by the motto ~ You Do You.

      This work was created by Jeff in response to World Pride Sydney 2023. The artist created this beautiful 2.4m x 2.4m artwork with the intention for it to be sold to raise money for charity partner Minus 18.
