'Michael Baroud from Marist College Kogarah explores the concept of gentrification and the changing nature of Sydney’s urban landscape in his work Gentrify This! (2019). His work depicts four dilapidated community buildings from different parts of Sydney, captured through use of coloured pencil drawings on corrugated cardboard. Baroud’s use of pencil mark and treatment of the scored and ripped cardboard creatures a worn and weathered texture – emphasising that these buildings ripe are for development, no matter their historical significance.'
