Latest Perfect Match art hits the streets
Tuesday 7 September 2021
Inner West Council’s Perfect Match street art program is continuing to support and connect artists and communities throughout lockdowns.
Perfect Match is a unique Council initiative tackling unwanted graffiti and fostering legitimate creative expression and art in public spaces.
The program brings artists, residents, businesses, property owners and community partners together to collaboratively create fantastic new street artworks in public places.
Property owners are invited to find their Perfect Match by nominating their wall to be transformed by an artist. Artists submit their designs and ideas.
The 2021 suite of street art is well underway. Three recently completed works are:
Give and Take by Reubszz
On Reubens Gym, 137 Victoria Road Marrickville
All Sorts by Kim and Nico
