A new piece of graffiti has appeared on a wall at Byron Regional Sport and Cultural Complex but no-one’s in a hurry to take it down.

The piece is the work of north coast spray-can artist Sauce and has been commissioned by Byron Shire Council.

The 12-metre mural on the kick wall of the complex was completed on Monday but the initial process began in July last year.

Following an expressions of interest process from Byron Shire Council, the Murwillumbah artist was chosen for the project.

‘It was great to be involved with this project in Byron because it has been a challenge to find work locally,’ he said.

‘The paperwork for this gig was lengthy, but in the end, I’m stoked this design was chosen, which allowed me to create some quality aerosol art.’

Byron mayor Simon Richardson was equally ‘stoked’.

‘This great piece is part of Council’s increasing commitment to facilitating public art in our spaces,’ he told Echonetdaily.

‘Like any artwork, after the creative process is completed, the great value is in how people engage with it, knowing that people respond differently to art. It’s located in a place highly frequented by the shire’s youth, who we hope will engage with and respond to this work.’

Sauce has more than a decade of professional experience in creating murals and his Murwillumbah studio is open to the public.
