New mural for Bath Lane precinct
A new mural by renowned street artist Baby Guerilla is being installed in the Bath Lane precinct.
Baby Guerilla’s concept will see a floating, suited office worker hand painted on to a wall in Laity Lane (between Indulge Fine Belgian Chocolates and Karma Kameleon). The artist will be on site for two weeks creating the work.
The City of Greater Bendigo and Bendigo and Adelaide Bank have jointly commissioned the work.
City Coordinator Creative Communities Maree Tonkin said it was fantastic to have such a unique piece in Bendigo.
“We are so pleased to be able to commission Baby Guerilla for a work here in Bendigo,” Ms Tonkin said.
“The work was selected following a competitive commissioning process, which was open for Victorian-based street artists. Baby Guerilla’s artworks often appear to suspend or defy gravity and aim to provoke a sense that anything is possible. We think it will be a great addition to the Bath Lane precinct.
“It has been fantastic to again work with Bendigo and Adelaide Bank to introduce more street art into the Bath Lane precinct
“Last year we had Daisylegs do a mural for Laity Lane and we have been working to bring art into Bendigo Bank Central with Exhibit B and the new digital touchscreen, which displays local art and music. Pennyweight Walk Open Air will also undergo a revamp by local street artists later this year.
“Thanks to the support of the Bendigo and Adelaide Bank, we have been able to bring more colour and interest to this precinct.
“We are looking forward to seeing the new mural when it’s complete.”
