The best things about street art are that it’s unrestricted, creative and diverse. Lucky for those living in Brisbane, an abundance of these interesting public art displays are everywhere, including West Brisbane.

In Bardon, Melanie Mons Wolff’s flowery canvas, titled Samsara (main photo, can be spotted at the intersection of Jubilee Terrace and Coopers Camp Road.

Commissioned in 2017, this creation was inspired by the various flora and fauna found in Bardon that grows and declines by the season. The mural reflects the constantly changing life and beauty of the locale.
