Manly Corso will be transformed into a live art class over the next month when a young local artist will be painting a huge mural on the recently erected construction hoardings.

Council has partnered with St Matthews Church to transform the appearance of the churches construction site which will see the renovation and redevelopment of retail space and community rooms.

Northern Beaches Mayor Michael Regan said we've engaged a local artist to make what would otherwise be an unsightly construction site into a beautiful art wall which captures the vibe of the area.

 "Manly Corso is the vibrant and buzzing entrance to the Northern Beaches, with eight million people strolling along the promenade each year. 

"Council understands the impact construction can have on surrounding local businesses and the community.

"By transforming the construction site into an eclectic and colourful urban artwork, we're making sure Manly continues to embrace the unique atmosphere that it's known for and also highlight our continued support for local businesses," Mayor Regan said.  

Local artist Patrick Hunter (aka Inkhunter) is also a volunteer lifeguard at Palm Beach and is expected to complete the artwork within three weeks.

"I'm really looking forward to working on this mural. As a local it's a great honour to have my art on The Corso

"The culture of Manly is unique and I want to capture this. I won't give too much away cause I want you to come down and see the work in progress, but our iconic ferry and fairy penguins will definitely feature in the work," Patrick said.  

While underway, passers-by will be able to stop, chill out and watch Patrick paint the mural 'live' during daylight hours.

The artwork will remain in-situ for up to 18 months while the development is completed.
