Alexandria, Wassell Lane

This mural appears on the garage door of a property that backs onto Wassell Lane, off Mitchell Road, in the inner city suburb of Alexandria. Many properties in the inner city suburbs, which had been targeted by vandals, now feature murals such as this as a preventative to ugly tags and graffiti.

  1. It seems it has worked in this example, but it does not always.

  2. I love these kind of murals, although here in Berlin, they don't necessarily stop people from tagging over them.

  3. If it works to stop graffiti, it's brilliant, otherwise I don't think I would want to live across the street from that particular piece of art.

    1. Being in a laneway behind their homes, it's not something that the neighbours would see from their homes.

  4. A striking mural both in colour and design. Most impressive.

  5. A clever idea, I like the way that street art is becoming more and more 'a la mode' in suburbia!

  10. Hi Jim,

    That is the fanciest garage door ever! Thanks for sharing.

    Please come back and tell me what you think of my Easter dinner post.

    Happy Blue Monday!

  11. Better yet have the local "street artists" put their skills to work for the community!

  13. A mutant owl? Very colorful and a cool graffiti deterrent. Thanks, Jim, for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

  15. Wonderful mural! And those eyes should be fierce enough to deter vandals.

  16. A very impressive mural art. I am happy I stopped by and saw this today although it took me a few days to stop by the Blue Monday participates. Enjoy a great weekend!
