Melanie Caple’s mural at the Seaford Library and Community Centre.
A new mural at Seaford Library and Community Centre pays tribute to Frankston City’s captivating natural environment. Commissioned by Frankston City Council as part of its Do It Outdoors campaign to promote outdoor dining and support businesses affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, Melanie Caple’s mural features coastal banksias, tea-tree and a swamp gum based on what she observed at nearby Kananook Creek. “I featured botanicals that are indigenous to the Kananook Creek area,” Melanie said. “I was particularly excited about painting the tea-tree – those flowers are so beautiful.”
Murals and street art are a major part of the city’s burgeoning arts scene, with pieces by Frankston and international artists bringing buildings and laneways to life. You can discover them yourself or book a Street Art Walking Tour for a personalised experience.
