Two new murals have come to life in Mandurah.

The murals at the Mandurah Library and Falcon Bay Beach ablution block, were created as part of the Mandurah Arts Festival.

At the Mandurah Library, Colombian artists Julian Clavijo and Camilo Delgado, now based in Melbourne, painted a mural that celebrates the joy of reading and the limitless world of imagination.

Clavijo, a globally recognised artist, was awarded the Best Global Artist Award for Street Art in Dubai in 2018.

Renowned Perth artist Sioux Tempestt brought her creative energy to Falcon Bay Beach ablution block, infusing the area’s unique stories with vibrancy and life.

Tempestt’s contemporary mural explores themes of activity, recreation, and community, reflecting the popular spot’s vibrant essence. 

With over 25 years of experience in public art projects, Tempestt collaborates with architects, developers, and local governments.

She specialises in creating abstract, mural, sculptural, and digital art.

Mayor Rhys Williams said the captivating murals were the first of a series of public art pieces the City of Mandurah would welcome over the next five years. 

“Mandurah’s arts scene has always been part of what makes our city special, and the new month-long Arts Festival has further delivered some incredible opportunities for our community to come together in appreciation of our art and culture offering,” Mayor Williams said. 

“These murals are amazing artworks by extremely talented, well-known artists and I encourage everyone to head along and see them for yourself. 

“Julian, Camilo and Sioux have travelled and done work all around the world and we have been so fortunate to have them create colourful and thought-provoking artworks at two of Mandurah’s important public spaces, which may otherwise have remained unseen. 

“These murals are the first of 10 public art pieces we will deliver over the next five years to activate community spaces and places across Mandurah."

The artists were selected from a pool of close to 30 applicants.
