The City of Canada Bay is seeking Expressions of Interest from artists to design and install a mural artwork on a property façade in the Refresh Concord West area. The purpose of the Mural is to assist with creating a place identity and add a different dimension to the visitor experience. The mural site falls within the Yaralla Conservation area and this could be an opportunity to draw on 1920’s imagery and reference the hidden gem of the Yaralla Estate or come up with fresh idea to celebrate the place.
The site is at 323 Concord Road, Concord West. The site is a brick wall currently painted a uniform grey with white highlights above the windows, located on the Wilga Street side of the property. The property is the home of iChoice, a mortgage broker. You will be able to use the whole wall and incorporate the windows as well. The wall is approximately 19.8 metres length x 8.7 metres at its highest point.
There are different themes outlined in the brief around Heritage with a contemporary feel , the environment or the local community, any one of which could be used in the mural or in combination. It should include however an “instragram” element so people passing by can be included in the artwork in their post.
