Banyule has a vibrant and colourful collection of commissioned street art throughout the municipality. Many of these murals and pieces are designed & created by young people as part the Banyule Street Art Program which aims to engage young people using this art form in a legal and positive way and end with a legal mural within Banyule.
About the mural
This Banyule owned facility had identified this as needing a colourful “facelift” as this is the main entrance being used by school groups that attend the swimming complex. It had also over the years been tagged.
The brief was to create signage and motif elements including accessibility and diversity communities to welcome and highlight inclusion for all. Whilst clearly indicating that this is a swimming centre.
This mural was then completed by the Banyule Mural Project artist, DASH, Mishap & Domski in February 2020.
