FITZROY MURAL

This mural in Fitzroy is found on the wall of a Yoga establishment. The theme of being in harmony in nature, new age ideals, wellness and health has been worked into the representative components of the mural.

The mural is the work of Chuck Mayfield & Julia Palazzo (http://mayfieldpalace.com/), and this is what they say about this work:
"We painted the external wall at this new Yoga studio in Fitzroy. They wanted bright, earthy colours and natural imagery which reflected the nature of their service and was also eye catching. We painted a female portrait with an american indian head dress and an array of animals. We included a subtle graffiti pattern to deter taggers from destroying the artwork."

  6. Nasty, uninvited graffiti dirties the neighbourhood. But the owners commissioned these artists and specifically asked for bright, earthy colours and natural imagery. Well done!
