School kids give their suburb a colour boost


Wow. It’s massive! Pupils from Ultimo Public School and their parents inspect their artistic contributions on the giant mural in Bulwara Road, Ultimo.

More than 100 school children have helped transform a bland concrete wall at Ultimo into a colourful piece of street art which is the size of some of the suburb’s studio apartments.

Measuring 8-metres by 4-metres, the massive mural contains 106 paintings from students at Ultimo Public School. Captions list the first name and age of each budding artist, some of whom are as young as four.

The vibrant panorama is on a rear wall of Auswin TWT’s development site, facing Bulwara Road, and brilliantly encapsulates the school’s motto: ‘Aspire, Achieve, Amaze’.

The 5,322sqm site – formerly the headquarters for the TAB – will eventually become a mixed-use development called New Life/Ultimo containing 210 apartments and commercial and retail space.

Auswin TWT is an Australian-based company formed in 2002 specialising in quality residential communities that reflect its commitment to art and architecture through its corporate mantra: ‘Living works of Art’.

After acquiring the Ultimo site, Auswin TWT sought to engage with the surrounding community, financially contributing to local charities and donating funds to help foster creative arts at Ultimo Public School.

Principal Nic Accaria had the honour of unveiling the kaleidoscopic artwork, which has quickly become the focal point of Bulwara Road. Pupils gather under it to take photos and proudly point out their artistic contribution.

When time comes to demolish the old structure, Auswin TWT will carefully remove the mural and offer it to the school.

Auswin TWT’s New Life/Ultimo will be the largest and most prestigious residential development in the suburb’s history. Full details are on:
