Street Art Mural

Yarra City Council

Graffiti Eaters Pty Ltd recently contacted us looking to commission an artist to paint a heavily targeted and vandalized wall sitting in a vacant plot of land. Graffiti Eaters are leaders in Australian graffiti removal services, and this time their team knew that only a street art mural could deter vandalism. Street Art Studios suggested using coats of anti-graffiti sealer to protect both the mural and the wall from mindless vandalism. We arranged a meeting on site and pencilled in target dates for installation, next allocating budgets and desired theme.

After the meeting, our artist began the design works for the client. The designs were approved within the week.

Measuring 40m2 (4m height x 10m length) with a limited budget the plan was set to save and repaint the vandalised wall. All design and installation costs were accounted and included. Following the client’s prompt payment of the booking deposit all materials were procured, but at the last minute a period of poor weather conditions added two months of delays before the project could begin.

Over four days the team battled through a Melbourne heatwave to produce this jungley street art mural. Anti-graffiti coatings followed the next day. Now the wall can even be pressure cleaned to retain its quality. The wall is far nicer to look at and can mitigate vandalism and tagging without any issue.

With that in mind, if you’re fighting a losing battle with taggers and vandals, it may be time to contact us. You will save money by reducing the amount of maintenance costs, eliminate the effort of cleaning defaced walls, and enjoy a quality mural for your community.
