Street art and commercial graffiti murals are everywhere in Melbourne, particularly in the trendy inner north suburbs. All bases are covered from crisp sign-writing styles through to grungy faux-illegal looking murals.
When family friendly Coco and Thyme took over an old fine dinning space they wanted to create a large ‘street-art’ piece with a connection to the area, that would be unique and warm up the space, I decided to take a distinctly different direction and create a very non-streetart looking mural.
Working from this brief, the mural takes inspiration from an old advertisement for the sale of land in the surrounding area, referencing the current owners to create a distinctly unique mural in the area.
