Street art is adding vibrant colour to buildings throughout Canterbury-Bankstown, as part of our Better Walls program.
The program is a dynamic partnership between young people and seasoned street artists and has resulted in five captivating murals, with two more murals on the way.
The visionary initiative, which redefines urban spaces through street art, has reached a significant milestone with 70 per cent of its transformative project completed.
Spearheaded by a number of accomplished Sydney-based artists, including Alex Lehours, Goya Torres, Peter Burke, Nico Nicolson and Dan Bianco, the initiative breathes new life into overlooked corners of Canterbury-Bankstown.
The Better Walls program champions mental health and communal spirit by enhancing urban spaces visually.
Canterbury-Bankstown Mayor Bilal El-Hayek said the aim of the program was to transform dull walls into vibrant and welcoming spaces.
“It’s an exciting program which allows young people to be creative and express themselves and at the same time sprucing up the community,” Mayor El-Hayek said.
“These murals are more than paint on walls… it’s a visual statement of what happens when young minds combine with the expertise of professional artists.
“Artworks the community can enjoy and be proud of!”
As the project nears completion, locals are invited to witness the remarkable transformation of underutilised spaces into vibrant canvases of expression. Murals are located at:
A further two murals, located in Georges Hall and East Hills, will be completed in the coming months.
