Graffiti Management Grant: Coronation Street Precinct

Council has been awarded a NSW Government grant through the Department of Communities and Justice for a Graffiti Management Grant.

The project will deliver several murals on buildings surrounding Coronation Street Hornsby.


The objectives of the grant funding is to:

  • Prevent and minimise incidents of graffiti vandalism
  • Reduce the social, environmental and economic impact of graffiti vandalism
  • Enhance community confidence and perception of safety


The murals will reflect the local neighbourhood and add vibrancy and colour to the precinct.

Untitled by Hugues Sineux (2023)

Beattie Lane Hornsby

In January 2023, Hugues completed a mural on the heritage listed building at 1-3 Jersey Street, representing a patchwork of images of historic events and references of the neighbourhood from the 20th century. The composition is painted in sepia tones in a large trompe l’oeil giving the illusion of a timber noticeboard upon which these images and references are pinned.

Local people and community volunteers from Fusion feature in the foreground, painted in a realist style in colour linking Hornsby’s past with present.

Untitled by Fintan Magee (2022)

Beattie Lane

In December 2022, Fintan completed a mural celebrating locally native, bushland trees of the Hornsby Shire - flowers, leaves and woody capsules (gumnuts). Trees represented include Eucalyptus saligna (Sydney blue gum), Angophora costata (Sydney red gum) and Sydney Turpentine-Ironbark Forest.

The colour palette of the artwork reflects the colours found within the surrounding bushland and of a sympathetic and compatible nature to the adjacent Browsery Cottage and Hornsby Westside Heritage Conservation Area.

Judge’s Horse and Cart (2023)

Shadow mural – Jersey Street Hornsby

This life sized "shadow mural" is of one of the horse and carts used to deliver fresh bread by Judge's Bakery, which was located on Coronation Street, at the intersection of Jersey Lane. Fabricated in steel and illuminated by LED lights at night, the sculpture was manufactured to scale using historical images as reference.
