Melbourne Schools Paint Community Mural

Noble Park Primary and St Anthony’s Primary

This mural project was completed in Noble Park, a Melbourne suburb in the Greater Dandenong region. The street art project was an initiative of the placemaking department at the Greater Dandenong Council. As a part of this community mural, students from nearby schools were invited to partake in painting the mural too.

Before starting the mural there was a mural brief to direct the purpose and outcome of the mural.

Street Art Site Considerations

  • Playful and bright mural artwork on the wall
  • Imagery and visual connection to Commonwealth Bank Lane artwork
  • Human scale, pedestrian orientated artwork.
  • Note the white interpretive sign on the wall. New mural artwork must respectfully work around the interpretive signage.
  • Challenge will be working around existing trees.
  • Commonwealth Bank Lane is 1 of 2 existing pedestrian laneways in Noble Park. There will be a stronger focus on creating more pedestrian-friendly/easy to navigate routes across Noble Park in the future. Buckley’s Lane (which the 2B Leonard Ave wall abuts) will have a stronger public realm/pedestrian focus in the future. Currently, it opens onto a public car park. New temporary public artwork/mural in this location will be an opportunity to start to communicate that this area will have a stronger pedestrian focus in the future.

School Mural Participation

Towards the end of the mural two local schools, Noble Park Primary and St Anthony’s Primary students were invited to help paint the mural too. It was great to have the students become a part of the mural painting process to help make the urban streetscape more engaging for people.

Master of School Murals & Workshops

Originally I was trained in fine arts with a focus on illustration, painting and letterpress (hand set typography). Later on I learnt to use Photoshop and Illustrator combined with other modern digital illustration software techniques.

Now with this combination of traditional & digital illustration I focus my work around commercial murals for schools. As a street artist if I can to contribute a positive learning space through art that makes the place more enjoyable for people then my imagination and creativity has served me well.
