Hi all,

I've read a few news articles about mural artworks and how they are helping the local communities to feel more positive about life during the pandemic.

An artist with some brilliantly beautiful mural artworks here in Newcastle, NSW, Oz is

Jordan Lucky

The murals pictured in the first four images on that page are on the exterior walls of my regular supermarket/shopping centre.

Jordan Lucky - another mural in my home area

There is a regular Newcastle mural project which happens every couple of years so we have some brilliant murals around town, but seeing the brightly coloured parrot and the beautifully painted proteas at the shopping centre, as I drive into the carpark always lifts my spirits.

I'm interested to see the images of mural artworks which make you smile, give your spirits a lift or just make you think.

The parrot is a rosella, by the way.

not in my suburb, but a short train ride away (5 inner city stations) is Newtown, once upon a time the new Town on the outskirts of Sydney) is the famous 1991 mural I have a dream which inspired other artists.

Thanks Sandra for the information about the Martin Luther King mural in Sydney. He's one of my all-time heroes.

I was really hoping that other people from various places would share mural artworks in their area, but it looks like I'm pretty much talking to myself.

Oh well!

My (very) Norfolk neighbour-across-the-road calls them 'Muriels'! But like me, she thinks they're very uplifting and interesting.

A couple of decades or so ago I went on a bus trip around parts of the Australian outback. In Broken Hill (one of my favourite cities) there were a lot of murals. There was also a woman called Muriel on the trip, with a great sense of humour who had joked about people referring to them as "muriels", so whenever I spotted a mural I'd say, "look at the muriels, Muriel!".

Try doing a Google image search on:

Sheffield Tasmania murals

We visited there in 2003. Lovely place and so many wonderful murals.

And also search on a small town up the valley from here:

Kurri Kurri murals
