Routledge visited North Fremantle Community Hall recently to create an urban art mural, a piece that now smiles down on those using Stirling Highway.

Curator Sherrie Wilson, who has brought together other artists for street art projects all around North Fremantle, said it was satisfying to play a hand in making her neighbourhood more beautiful.

“It sits beautifully in its environment – the colours in the mural contrast excitingly against the green of the bowling green and blue sky and it adds a much-needed point of interest to that corner of Stirling Highway,” she said.

“I’ve received nothing but super positive feedback and I believe the community is very happy with it.

“Murals play an important role in developing urban areas; they beautify neighbourhoods and give people who may not visit a gallery an opportunity to enjoy art.

“They’ also increase people’s pride in their neighbourhood and decrease crime.”
