Local Artist creates VW Bonnet masterpiece for Vietnam Vets Fundraiser

Local Artist creates VW Bonnet masterpiece for Vietnam Vets Fundraiser

This amazing piece of artwork lovingly crafted onto the VW Bonnet pictured is made by Mieke Salna, a Sippy Downs, local mural/airbrush artist.

The image depicts the WWI landing in Gallipoli, Australians fighting in the jungle in Vietnam and on the right an Australian soldier from Afghanistan. The center the bonnet immortalises a WWI soldier and an Australian soldier from the Afghanistan conflict, with the modern soldier telling the old cobber “lets go home”.

This bonnet will soon make it’s reunion to the 1974 Volkswagon Beetle it came from which has been fully restored thanks to the initiative of Darroon Mathews. A lot of businesses have joined forces to help restore the Beetle for either a very reduced rate or sponsored parts. Darroon started this project with the beetle you see here above and will be very soon finished ready to be auctioned off. All proceeds will go to the Vietnam Veterans Association Maroochydore.  Darroon Matthews approached Mieke to paint this artwork as she was recommended by Kuston Paints in Woombey after they had seen some of my work on a helmet that she had done last year.

The artwork has been painted with Createx, Whicked and illustration colours. A photographer is coming to make pictures of it tomorrow and when the Beetle is all done it will be on display in the showroon at Cricks in Maroochydore.

   

The project creators are still looking to find $3500 which they hope to achieve through gofundme, these details you can find on the facebook page dedicated to this cause   at https://www.facebook.com/VWBeetleVietnamVets.
