Artist adds a splash of colour to Mandurah's CBD

Mandurah artist Tahnee Kelland has taken it upon herself to brighten up Mandurah Terrace with a series of colourful pavement designs.

The project is only in its early stages, but it will feature several bright geometrical paintings resembling Moroccan rugs.

The paintings will extend along Mandurah Terrace, between Smart Street Mall and the Brighton Hotel, and will connect to the existing street art in nearby Tuckey Lane.

In order to get the local community involved, Ms Kelland is inviting Mandurah residents over the age of 10 to take part in the painting process, which will be carried out from 8am to 5pm between June 6 and 8.

The project, Ms Kelland said, hopes to activate the area, bring more visitors to the strip and give residents the opportunity to take ownership of the art piece. 

She said the colourful street art on Tuckey Lane had already attracted the attention of both visitors and residents, bringing more traffic to the businesses in the tiny lane.

The project is part of a plan by local space activation organistion Shape Mandurah to transform the city into a vibrant hub of activity. 

If you wish to get involved head down to Mandurah Terrace between Tuesday and Thursday, grab a brush and start giving the street a fresh coat of paint.
