Urban murals

Calling all mural artists!

We are looking for an artist to work with us in 2024 on a new public mural at Lindfield Village Green. Applications are open 11 June - 29 July.

Council has been working with local artists to commission a range of new works featuring our native plants and animals and aspects of creating healthy, liveable communities.

This year's mural will follow the theme of working together as a community and living sustainably through active transport/cycling. It will support Council's Net Zero Ku-ring-gai program.

The mural will be painted at the entrance to the Lindfield Village Green car park, next to newly-installed bike racks. We want to beautify this space and encourage pedal power amongst local residents.

How to apply

Applications from artists across Greater Sydney will be accepted and the successful artists will have the opportunity for a site visit, discussions with the Council coordinators and receive a commission for the purchase of supplies and your time to complete both the concept and delivery of the artwork.

The blurred golden backgrounds are reminiscent of what your eyes do when we focus upon something that captures our attention. The birds and flowers are prominent within the surrounding bushland and give viewers a snapshot into the inhabitants amongst them.
