You might not know it, but Townsville has a thriving street art community and it’s growing with local street art team Run Collective providing the goods for you and I to enjoy for free.

Their latest space themed mural is taking shape on Ogden Street and it won’t be easily missed once completed, with it being 20 metres long and 5.5 metres high.

Street art lovers and art novices alike will be able to immerse themselves in this piece with Run Collective’s John Bradshaw saying in a Huxley Press interview that he wants it to be

“…open to the public and not have a direct meaning – people can have their own interpretation of what they’re seeing and what the objects mean to them.”

If you need some more Run Collective in your life – their free ‘Found in Space: 10 Year Exhibition’ is currently running at the Perc Tucker Regional Gallery until the 28th May.

If you feel like an arty stroll around town, don’t forget you can grab a ‘Street Art City Walking Trail’ map from here.

There’s so much amazing art in our town in the most unsuspecting places – Go searching for it!
