Superheroes captured in Bankstown

Superheroes captured in Bankstown Mayor Khal Asfour said families should check out the Imagine Wall inside Bankstown Arts Centre. Yes  

A band of superheroes has been spotted in Canterbury-Bankstown.

Mayor Khal Asfour said families should check out the Imagine Wall inside Bankstown Arts Centre.

"I took my two boys, Elias and Lucas, to see what the fuss is all about and they loved it," Mayor Asfour said.

"A large superhero mural has been painted onto the wall and they wanted to be part of it."

Sydney artist, Mandy Schone-Salter was commissioned to produce the piece.

"I wanted to remind children to be children," Ms Schone-Salter said.

"Most kids these days choose to stay inside, stuck on whatever the latest device is. That’s why I tried bringing the fictional characters they see on TV inside their homes, outside.

"I want them to see the wall and wander into their own imaginary world, creating their own superhero or character, while exploring the City and taking in the environment around them."

While the mural might be targeted towards children, Ms Schone-Salter said she hoped adults would be accepting of the fact it was in a public space.

"I really do believe creating a giant mural is a great way of exposing the beauty of art to many people at once," she said.

"This location works particularly well because it faces the Bankstown Rail Line, which ensures thousands of people see it every day and that is every artist’s dream."

The superhero artwork can be viewed up until the end of February at Bankstown Arts Centre, from Monday to Friday (9am-5pm).

If you are an artist interested in exhibiting your temporary art works on the Imagine Wall at the Arts Centre, call 9707 5400 or email
