Street Art Jigsaws is a Melbourne-based company, who launched in 2020. Our aim is to celebrate our talented local street artists through high-quality jigsaw puzzles suitable for ages 8 and up. We are in talks with some local MP’s to enthuse them to generate a community based interest in both local Mural Artists and their works, in and around Melbourne.
George Petropoulos is THE imaginator of this world famous Front Line Heroes image, and George wanted this idea to be displayed on his Tribute Wall in Black Rock, Victoria Australia. George asked his friends at Melbourne’s Murals if they could create and construct the now famous piece.
Melbourne’s Murals’ artworks include The Aussie spirit which depicts the struggles and Aussie values and tenacity to save as much wildlife as possible.
The Australian Spirit captures our 2019–20 ‘Black Summer’ which we are still recovering from. The bushfire season also saw environmental and ecological effects, including the loss of an estimated 8,000 koalas, placing the species at risk of extinction.
Yet through this devastation, the Australian spirit remained strong and unwavering. This moment in our history is beautifully illustrated in ‘The Australian Spirit’.
Front Line Heroes, which pays tribute to our hardworking healthcare workers and first responders, who selflessly put their own lives on the line to keep the community safe every day.
The paintings / murals are located at 606 Balcombe Road, Black Rock, Victoria have received over 1 million views on social media and international exposure, including TV and newspaper coverage (10 News First Melbourne, The Age, CNBC, NBC News, The Guardian, The Telegraph) and even a billboard in Miami.
Street Art Jigsaws is always on the lookout for unique, great, inspiring and generally, exceptional street art that could be transformed into jigsaw puzzles, with a difference.
