Welcome to Spotswood

Spotswood is a small, quirky suburb in Melbourne’s inner-west with a diverse industrial history. It is also an area that is changing.

In acknowledgment of this change and the area’s unique landmarks, local artisan sign writer, Tony Mead, will paint a larger-than-life, postcard-style mural ‘Welcome to Spotswood’ on a vintage water tank.

Featuring an image of the Westgate Bridge against a silhouetted Melbourne CBD at sunrise, Tony’s mural design has inspired a collaboration of filmmakers and musicians to create a short film and a song that tell stories of an area that has in recent years become home to cafés, wine bars, art studios and even a boutique brewery.

Tony will be hand-painting the mural over October and November. Passers-by can catch a glimpse of the mural evolving in the vacant lot across from the glassworks on the corner of Booker Street and Hudsons Road, Spotswood.
