BUDDING artists in Liverpool helped design a new mural to be located in front of Liverpool Library.

During a recent workshop, local residents shared their ideas for the mural with a small group of experienced artists.

One of the artists commissioned by Liverpool Council was Cam Wall.

"I'm excited at the prospect of painting in Liverpool and meeting some of the people out there," he said.

"It's always fun painting in places that you don't get to visit often, especially painting this large wall on the library that will hopefully brighten up the area and engage the local community."

Wall dedicates his time to teaching art and design principles, particularly to youth.

"I've facilitated quality workshops for organisations including The Salvation Army and run courses regularly for Manly, Warringah, Bankstown, City of Sydney and Ryde councils," he said.

"My work is often figurative, with suggestions of gestural abstraction working mainly with aerosol and acrylic."

Mayor Ned Mannoun said the workshop helped youth to create community art.

"Whether you wanted to have your say in what the new mural will look like, meet other artists and make new connections, or liked the idea of a free smoothie, there was something for everyone at the workshop."
