Inspired by the nostalgia of Mildura’s early marketing, the ‘Mildura’ mural is a celebration of the region’s industry and tourism.
The mural on the Ninth Street side of Ryan Legal’s 85 Langtree Avenue building is the first of a series of murals made possible through the Federal Government’s Stronger Communities funding.
The mural was designed by Ballarat-based Travis Price, with Merbein signwriter Terry ‘Moose’ McGowan taking the lead on the paintbrush, with help from Mildura City Heart’s Danielle Hobbs and Cultivator Inc’s Sophie Cook.
Price is driven to design works that connect to a site’s history and community, taking inspiration for the mural design from 1950s tourism marketing and early fruit packaging.
Price is no stranger to Mildura, having previously made his mark on the signwriting landscape of the city when he designed Antisocial’s 10-year anniversary artwork.
