Renown mural artist Melski, has joined forces with a team of local young artists to create a magnificent addition to Midland Gate’s ‘Museum of Modern Art’.
The project was born out of Melski’s ambassadorship of the City of Swan’s 2016 HyperVision youth art awards – an annual initiative supported by Midland Gate.
A collaboration between the artist and four HyperVision finalists has transformed a dull recladding project on one of the centre’s entrances into a colourful community art installation.
The design team, headed by Melski, came together in early September to design a concept that came to life at a community painting day.
Members of the community were invited to participate in the painting of the mural with Melski’s unique ‘paint by numbers’ approach.
On Sunday, October 16 more than 20 community members came together to paint the mural which featured trains, vines, wildlife and the hills.
Midland Gate centre manager Alison Broadbent said the centre was delighted with the result.
She said the creative initiative tied into Midland Gate’s core purpose of enriching community experiences.
The mural can be viewed at Midland Gate on the upper deck car park.
