Celebrate Bayswater Art Walk
The Celebrate Bayswater Art Walk event runs from Saturday 20 November and features a 68m temporary mural that encourages people to visit and support local Bayswater businesses during works on the New Bayswater Station.
The 27-panel mural was created by local community artists Gabi Mazalevkskis and Alli Sylvestre who engaged residents, creatives, primary schools, businesses and community groups to uncover the stories, personalities and images of Bayswater.
The result is a creative snapshot of Bayswater’s local landmarks, colourful characters and history that reflects the themes of past, present and future connections.
A huge thank you goes to the local primary schools, creatives, filmmakers, musicians, businesses and community groups for being part of this great initiative.
