Leedy mega mural

A MAMMOTH new mural by artist Mel McVee – paying homage to the historic general stores of the area – has been painted on the side of the Good Grocer Leederville IGA.

The concept was to draw on the elements of the old grocery stores – delivery trucks, fresh food, orchard trees and food-producing animals, and it was co-funded by store owner Brindle Group and Vincent council.

30m long and 5m high, McVee aka “Melski” brought in some helpers to add a few licks of paint to her usual whimsical style—which can be seen nearby on the toilet block in the carpark.

It used to be one of the area’s eyesores before she brought it to life with one of her colourful works in 2014.
