New mural brightens up Central Pier
By Sean Car
February saw a team of artists paint a 90-metre mural along the hoarding of Central Pier.
Blender Studios in West Melbourne was commissioned by TAC to paint a mural titled The Road Belongs to All of Us to help celebrate and inform the community about new cycling infrastructure in Melbourne coinciding with the release of a new Melbourne bike map.
Blender Studio’s lead artist Adrian Doyle told Docklands News that his team of eight artists came together with the intention of creating a “dynamic and large-scale mural”.
“The mural reflects on the icons of inner-city suburbs,” he said.
“[Artist] Adnate created a portrait of the lady whom was the original model of the skipping girl to represent Richmond, Kaffine has created a very awesome LGBTQI-friendly artwork of Collingwood and its famous characters and icons and I created the link from the suburbs to the inner-city.”
The mural was completed at the end of February and will be up for a few months •
