Striking new urban gallery

Portraits of Strength

This Lunar New Year, Crown Melbourne is unveiling a public art series along it’s iconic fire towers, Portraits of Strength. A touching two-week tribute, the display champions the stories of six everyday Aussie heroes in a collection of stunning portraits, creating a striking urban gallery along the Crown Riverwalk.

Portraits of Strength is an emotive art series by Hong Kong-born photographer Sam Wong that embraces the sense of community and resilience born from the extraordinary challenges of 2020, and encourages strength for the upcoming year.

Pertinent to the characteristics of this year’s zodiac animal, each Australian profiled personifies the key traits of the Ox – strength, diligence, reliability, honesty and commitment.
