AS quickly as an anonymous graffiti artist went to work on Thirroul’s ‘Great Wall’, creating what could have become the seaside suburb’s own ‘Chloe by the Beach’, just as fast, the mural had vanished.
A Wollongong City Council spokesperson said it didn’t appreciate the “art work” on what is considered “a heritage precinct” and, on Monday, had painted over the graffiti.
“While we appreciate some might view this graffiti as more creative and artistic than a tagging incident, this is graffiti and it’s not the location for such imagery,” the spokesperson said.
“That’s why our crews have gone onsite and painted over the imagery.”
