New public art in St Kilda

City of Port Phillip
Have you spotted the two new murals on Inkerman Street and Hewison Reserve, St Kilda? These artworks serve dual purpose – firstly as part of our Graffiti Mitigation Strategy, which aims to reduce incidents of graffiti, as well as beautifying the area.

Two new murals, painted by Benjamin Yates (knock), have recently been completed on Inkerman Street and Hewison Reserve in St Kilda.

While he painted, Ben was kept company by local residents, who praised his artwork and welcomed the new additions to the neighbourhood; pleased to see some bright colours.

The murals form part of our Graffiti Mitigation Mural program, which has been running since 2015.

In addition to contributing to the reduction of graffiti in Port Phillip, the murals contribute to the public artworks in our City, encouraging discovery, contemplation, debate, participation, imagination, as well as recognising our local history, culture and society.
