Willoughby Public School is located on Sydney's North Shore. Hugues completed two murals for the school, one on the exterior of a beautiful old building within the grounds and another within the entrance to the students' toilet block.
Bedtime Story, the external mural, is a whimsical night-time scene featuring a troupe of animal characters, including a very impressive elephant tenor, putting on a musical performance on an open stage in a fairy tale landscape.
Animal Portrait Gallery, the internal mural, evokes a grand country house hall within the covered entrance to the boys and girls bathrooms. The high-ceiling interior was painted to resemble wallpapered walls covered in paintings of Australian wildlife. Classical animal portraits sit alongside bright pop art inspired works, and all beneath a plywood cut-out chandelier! The entryway to the boys toilets sports a dapper kangaroo, while the entryway to the girls toilets features a playful emu.
