"The artwork presents a wizard dreaming of paradise – an ode to escaping the nine-to-five daily grind. I wanted to keep the colours simple, allowing the piece to pop out against the laneway and for the piece to be humorous and light hearted. I think this reflects what The Snake Hole is all about – we never want to take ourselves too seriously!"
