Who We Are

The Team

The Art of Wall was established in 2012 by Leia Sidery. Throughout the past decade, Leia has undertaken projects both independently and some times drawing on an extensive team of artists, depending on the project’s size and scope. During her formative years, Leia benefitted from the mentorship of Jo Breneger, of Indigo Jo, who not only imparted valuable wisdom but also instilled in her the confidence to approach any undertaking, regardless of its magnitude.

In recent years, Leia and Jo have become frequent collaborators, working together to interpret the artistic visions of established artists for ambitious large-scale public art initiatives. Their partnership holds immense value, allowing them to draw upon each other’s expertise and skills with unwavering confidence, making them exceptionally well-suited to undertake projects of considerable scale.

We recognise that certain endeavours may demand a larger team to actualise the vision. In such instances, we tap into our extensive network of remarkable talents, comprising diverse artists, muralists, designers, and artisans who share our fervour for creating extraordinary outcomes. Each individual within this network has been thoughtfully selected based on their expertise, creativity, and unwavering dedication to their craft.

Through the utilisation of this collaborative network, we tailor specialised teams to meet the specific needs of each project. This approach grants us the flexibility and adaptability required to tackle endeavours of varying scales and complexities. As a result, we maintain our commitment to exemplary craftsmanship and attention to detail, even when confronted with ambitious and demanding ventures.

In more recent times, Leia, together with her mentor-turned-collaborator Jo Breneger from Indigo Jo, has ventured into working with established artists, lending their expertise to interpret and bring their work to life in large-scale public art projects.

She is an artist in her own right, her solo works under the moniker Lilium Bo are vibrant meditations on consciousness, rich with symbolism depicting the labyrinth. Her captivating works invite contemplation and introspection.
