Up the Wall Mural

Woollahra Council is seeking artists to design an outstanding mural for Robertson Park at Watsons Bay!

The Project

Council is seeking to paint a sophisticated and site specific mural on one external wall of the amenities block in Robertson Bay, Watsons Bay. The wall is highly visible to park users and visitors and the mural will make a strong visual impact and contribution to Watsons Bay.

The project involves artists developing and submitting their design, with the selected design to be painted by the artist as a large mural on the nominated wall in Roberston Park, Watsons Bay. The artwork needs to consider the unique locality of the area and should address themes including but not limited to the local flora and fauna, vicinity to remnant bushland, cultural heritage and the harbour location.

The artist selected will be paid $2,500 for their participation in this project.

Submissions close on 29 May at 5pm.

Previous Murals

South Street Mural

In a partnership with Sydney Trains, the South Street mural is painted along the rail wall by Rose Bay artist Gabrielle Somers. Gabrielle’s mural Networks is a Geodesic dome design, representing networks and connections.

South Street 2

Young Street Mural

In a partnership with the building owner,  the mural painted by artist Nastia Gladushchenko is located on the corner of Young and Oxford Street Paddington. Nastia’s mural Interwoven is comprised of the shapes of interwoven arms painted either in solid shapes or outlines in various shades of white that create an ombre effect on the Heritage green wall. Inspired by a series of photographs that Nastia took earlier this year, Interwoven blurs the boundaries between the human body and the natural environment.
