A community art project is breathing new life into the car park at Tunstall Square Shopping Centre in Doncaster East.

Manningham Council is working with the shopping centre to turn the car park into an artist’s canvas.

Local artists and a range of schools and community organisations have been invited to paint designs directly onto the asphalt across two rows of car parking spaces. A local artist is helping to bring these creations to life.

Manningham Mayor Cr Andrew Conlon said: “There’s a wealth of creative talent in our region and this art project is yet another way to showcase these skills while improving the visual landscape of the shopping centre.”

“Come down and check out the masterpieces at Tunstall Square Shopping Centre on the corner of Tunstall and Doncaster Roads in Doncaster East,” he said.

Tunstall Square West Shopping Centre Manager, Irene Goonan, said that this was the first time something like this has been done in Australia and the community could join in the fun of watching these masterpieces being created.

The majority of painting will be on Sunday 9 and 16 September. The public is welcome to attend.

Two parking aisles will be closed on either side of the main walkway at the shopping centre until Thursday 20 September while the project is underway.
