Sheffield in Northern Tasmania is a great town for anyone to visit. The major tourist attraction is the murals (Town of Murals) for which it is famous for. The town of just over a 1,000 people have held an annual international mural festival since 2003. There is a competition with a theme of which the nine finalists proudly display their artwork in the park.
This is an interesting mural of work. The depressing mood of the painting is created using dull-grey and black colours. Then there is the shinning, bright, graffiti piece which draws the viewers attention. This mural is made interesting because its taken graffiti and put it in a positive position amongst the bleak urban landscape. Behind the built up society is a distant natural environment separated by an impenetrable concrete wall.
This is a classic. The mural is titled "No Demands Land" spin-off of Van Dieman's Land (the name of the island prior to being called Tasmania). It really goes to show the relaxed nature of the Tasmanian lifestyle.
