Morley starts the year in full colour

Posted on January 14, 2019

Morley is now home to a large-scale mural showcasing the cultural diversity of the local community. Located at the popular international food and dining centre Coventry Village, the 90 metre artwork is one of the largest in the state.

City of Bayswater Deputy Mayor Chris Cornish said the project added to Morley's appeal as a thriving metropolitan suburb.

"The City is proud to support projects that bring activity and vibrancy to our town centres.

"Morley is a true melting pot of cultures, with almost half of the community born overseas. This artwork is a celebration of the diversity that makes Morley such a unique and fantastic place to live and visit.

"This impressive artwork has added a splash of colour and excitement to the Morley CBD and will be enjoyed by thousands of visitors to this busy retail and dining precinct", Deputy Mayor Chris Cornish said.

Coventry Village is the major sponsor of this project, partnering with the City of Bayswater and local community group The Morley Momentum. The Butcher Shop, Bunnings and Lumens Photography also supported the project.

Coventry Village Director Mike Holtham congratulated The Morley Momentum and graffiti artist Amuck 37 for bringing the 90 metre long mural to life.

“This is one of the biggest public murals in Perth and reflects our multicultural community of patrons and tenants at Coventry Village,” Mr Holtham said.

“Amuck 37 is a local artist who assembled a team of some of Australia’s best graffiti artists who flew in to Perth for this project.

“Coventry Village is proud to be the major sponsor of this artwork, which adds life and colour to the Morley town centre and will be an attraction in itself.”

With its graffiti-twist, the 400 square metre artwork depicts a journey through more than a dozen cultures commonly represented in Morley. Iconic symbols and events associated with the different ethnicities can be recognised throughout the mural, creating an engaging backdrop to this popular location.
