Hindley street Sia mural to be changed to look less like her
Have you seen the changes to this mural in Adelaide?
The vibrant mural, inspired by Adelaide musician Sia Furler is in the process of being changed, after the musicians management contacted the Adelaide City Council about the piece.
The commissioned mural was painted by Adelaide artist Jasmine Crisp as part of the Adelaide City Council’s plan to immortalise the city’s most significant musical exports.
Featured on the eastern-facing wall of the Rockford Hotel, at the corner of Hindley Street and Morphett Street in Adelaide’s CBD, the council has said the artist’s vision wasn’t to portray Sia, but to express the spirit of her music.
The city plans to name four laneways after musicians; Cold Chisel, The Angels, Paul Kelly, and Sia, with each laneway set to feature a mural or artwork inspired by the artist. Sia Furler Lane was the first street to be named, and its accompanying mural was finished in February this year.
The mural is currently in the process of being amended by the artist after Sia’s management contacted the council with concerns about the likeness, but are fully supportive of a mural that draws inspiration from her music.
