Newtown, mural (Theme Day: Blue)

"It’s Like a Jungle Sometimes" is a mural painted on the side wall of a shop on the corner of Enmore Road and Bailey Street, in the inner city suburb of Newtown. The artwork created by artist Colin Bebe was at this location for over a decade but in 2017, it was illegally painted over by an advertising agency, to advertise a Hollywood film. After public outcry, the film director apologised and the ad agency restored the original mural in collaboration with the artist and agreeing to cover all costs assisting him in painting it.
