Melbourne Pavement Mural Artist
This was a pavement mural project as part of a placemaking public artwork to help make the laneway more accessible and inviting to use.
This laneway mural is diverse but also inclusive with its colours and bold shapes and patterns. The artwork is to help invite and welcome people to use the laneway as an enjoyable experience of moving from one place to another.
The mural was painted in Noble Park for Greater Dandenong Council. Noble Park is about a 30-minute drive from the heart of Melbourne.
The pavement mural was 46m long and 3m wide and connected the main street to a rear car park and other pathways to access other areas of the Noble Park shopping area.
Mural Site Considerations
- Playful and bright artwork
- Plays off the colour palette of surrounding retailers
- No wording in artwork
- Maintain conspicuity through a difference in colour between the pavement and walls, and pavement and bollard so that DDA passage for visually impaired users through the laneway is not compromised
- Avoid spatial trickery / illusions making things appear to be a different size / length (say painting steps where there are none)
- Avoid including anything that could be mistaken for a traffic control device at the ends of the laneway
- The artwork is to remain for 2-5 years. Council to maintain artwork during this period
- Council are able to pressure wash surface prior to installation of works.
Another place making mural I painted in the Melbourne area was for the City of Greater Bendigo Council. Also if you like to view more of my street art projects you can see these in my showcase section.
