New artwork ‘The Wall’ unveiled

New artwork ‘The Wall’ unveiled Image

Southbank has a brand new art installation, with the opening of ‘The Wall’, under the Kingsway overpass on the Crown promenade.

Crown commissioned Melbourne artist Adrian Doyle to produce the work, which certainly livens up the walkway. Mr Doyle said the 45-metre mural “nearly killed” him and his team, but the end result had made it worthwhile.

At the official opening of the work, Crown CEO Greg Hawkins said the casino was thrilled with the result and thanked Mr Doyle for his extensive work.

“This piece of art talks about our history. It’s a very different experience to what you would have had walking through this area,” Mr Hawkins said.

Lord Mayor Robert Doyle said: “The wall changes the feel of this entire area along Southbank, and it also protects the area from tagging and vandalism.”
