On the corner of Wellington Street and Vere Street in the Collingwood district of Melbourne, lies a large public housing block. These were constructed as part of the social housing movement across Melbourne in the 1960s and there are many similar tower blocks that still tower over different inner suburbs of the city.
In 2018, local artist Matt Adnate, who is known for using his work to promote conversation and public discourse, was commissioned by a street art collective Juddy Roller to dream up and paint this quite remarkable piece of art. At a height of around 50 meters, it is the tallest mural in the Southern Hemisphere and the bright colors make it visible from a long distance away. The local state government provided a grant of $150,000, which helped with logistics due to the sheer scale of the project.
