Canning Bridge Precinct mural RFQ

The City of Melville is seeking experienced mural artists currently working with typography to create a series of typographic mural artworks within the busy Canning Bridge precinct.

The artwork is intended to be typography based (typography is the technique of arranging type or letters and numbers) to reference the site - a busy, car dominated urban streetscape. It is intended for the typographic artwork to create point of interest and create a moment of contemplation or pause for motorists and pedestrians.

The mural artwork is intended to reduce the very high rates of graffiti vandalism in this location through CPTED (crime prevention through environmental design) method of installing artwork to deter tagging.

Submissions are due by 5:00pm, Sunday, 11 April, 2021.
