Brighton-Le-Sands, mural

This mural has been painted on three large shipping containers in Cook Park overlooking Lady Robinsons Beach and Botany Bay, in the southern suburb of Brighton-Le-Sands. The local council placed these here recently after several large trees were illegally cut down with chainsaws. New trees have now been planted and the containers will stay in place to give them time to grow and become established and to deter future vandalism at the site. The mural features a yellow tailed black cockatoo amongst the blooms of a native Banksia tree, feasting on the pods.

Erskineville, art (Theme Day: Right Under Your Nose)


This artwork is located on the facade of a former warehouse along Rochford Street, in the inner city suburb of Erskineville. "The Lips" features a mural created by artist Rachel Szalay in 2020, celebrating the Australian Golden Wattle and Flowering Gum Trees. The warehouse was built in the 1930s and was previously used as a co-working space for creative industry freelancers, small businesses and entrepreneurs. It has now been redeveloped and converted into a couple of residential properties. I photographed this artwork when the lips featured a different design, which can be seen here and originally when they were a plain red, which can be seen here
