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 three 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.

Hugues Sineux – Beattie Lane

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.

Fintan Magee – 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.
