The COVID-19 pandemic has brought our iconic bustling laneways to an unprecedented standstill but Melbourne's passion for the arts, creativity and expressiveness continues to thrive!
Our world-renowned street art scene has always been at the beating heart of the Melbourne CBD, paying colourful tribute to pop culture favourites, reflecting on current affairs, and showing support to our local heroes.
With Street Art Jigsaws, you can continue to support talented local street art artists and indulge in everyone's favourite pandemic pastime - jigsaw puzzles!
This innovative Melbourne-based company is set to launch two limited edition Melbourne street art inspired jigsaw puzzles through a convenient online store from September 20.
Choose from the stunning and timely Front Line Heroes, which pays tribute to our hardworking healthcare workers and first responders, who selflessly put their own lives on the line to keep the community safe every day. This beautiful image of a healthcare worker in the atlas pose holding up earth was created by Melbourne's Murals.
Our 2019–20 'Black Summer' saw widespread devastation across the country, which we are still recovering from. The bushfire season also saw environmental and ecological effects, including the loss of an estimated 8,000 koalas, placing the species at risk of extinction. Yet through this devastation, the Australian spirit remained strong and unwavering. This moment in our history was captured by Melbourne's Murals in 'The Australian Spirit'.
Both Melbourne's Murals' artworks, located at 606 Balcome Road, Black Rock, have received over 1 million views on social media and international exposure, including TV and newspaper coverage (10 News First Melbourne, The Age, CNBC, NBC News, The Guardian, The Telegraph) and even a billboard in Miami.
The artworks have been carefully drafted and developed into a high-quality 1000-piece, 700x 500mm jigsaw puzzle by Street Art Jigsaws in-house skilled artisans. The price is $39.99 per jigsaw puzzle. Pre-order your piece of Melbourne history at www.streetartjigsaws.com.au today. Both jigsaw puzzles are a limited release, so pre-order now to avoid disappointment.
