Transforming Spaces: Our Mural Project for Alfasi Properties in Melbourne

At JayMT & Silva, we believe in the transformative power of art, and our recent project for Alfasi Properties in Melbourne is a testament to this belief. Alfasi Properties faced a significant challenge: the front wall of their main corporate building was constantly tagged and covered in dirt, giving the area a negative reputation. Determined to uplift the space and prevent further tagging, they reached out to us for a solution.


The Challenge: A Wall in Distress


The wall in front of Alfasi Properties’ main offices was an eyesore. Constantly tagged and dirty, it not only detracted from the building’s appearance but also affected the surrounding community. The negative impact on the area was clear, and something needed to be done to revitalize the space and deter future vandalism.


The Solution: An Uplifting Mural


Our task was to create an artwork that would transform the problematic wall into a vibrant and welcoming feature. The design needed to be uplifting, beautiful, and resonate with both clients and the community. After several consultations with Alfasi Properties, we decided on a mural that would incorporate the local flora in an abstract and colorful style, aligning with the client’s vision and the community’s desire for a more appealing environment.



The Execution: Splitting the Vision


Originally intended to cover one huge wall, the project was adjusted to span two separate walls, maintaining a cohesive style and design. This allowed us to address both parts of the building’s frontage, creating a unified aesthetic that was part of a larger concept design we had developed.


The idea was simple yet powerful: to express the local flora in a way that was both abstract and vibrant. This approach aimed to create a visually stimulating piece that would not only beautify the area but also foster a sense of pride and ownership within the community.


The Painting Process: Bringing the Design to Life


The painting process took around 8 to 10 days. Our team worked meticulously to ensure that every detail of the abstract flora was captured, using bright, uplifting colors to transform the space. The community responded positively to our presence, often stopping by to express their excitement and appreciation for the project.


The Result: A Revitalized Space


Since completing the mural, the area has seen a significant reduction in tagging. The vibrant artwork has deterred further vandalism and has been warmly received by both the community and clients of Alfasi Properties. The once troublesome wall now stands as a testament to the power of art in transforming and uplifting spaces.


The client was extremely pleased with the result, noting that the mural exceeded their expectations and provided exactly what they needed: a beautiful, protective barrier that enhanced the aesthetic appeal of their building.


Conclusion


This project for Alfasi Properties highlights our commitment to using art to solve real-world problems. At JayMT & Silva, we take pride in creating murals that not only beautify spaces but also serve the needs of our clients and their communities.
