Seascape mural for Merewether tunnel

LOCAL artist Trevor Dickinson, of Newcastle Productions, has been chosen by Newcastle council to design and paint a new mural in the Merewether beach pedestrian tunnel. 

The mural, as well as many other art works in public spaces, is part of an ongoing council program to discourage graffiti.

Dickinson has started working on the walls and ceiling of the walkway underneath Scenic Drive, which provides beachgoers with access from Ridge Street to Henderson Parade.

His  aquarium design includes seahorses, sharks, a monster from Creature from The Black Lagoon, a dolphin, lots of fish, a blue groper and a stingray.
