Glasgow-based muralist SMUG recently finished this stunning mural in the centre of Melbourne’s business district.

The four storey mural on a former power station features the artist’s grandparents in his signature photo realistic style and took a bit longer to complete with the wet and wild weather conditions.

If you are in the area and wish to view this awesome piece of work, the four-storey mural can be seen on the wall of the former power station on the corner of Lonsdale and Spencer streets, which closed in 1982.
