Should this ‘violent and offensive’ Bondi Beach mural be removed?

Article image for Should this ‘violent and offensive’ Bondi Beach mural be removed?

There are calls for a mural on the Bondi sea wall to be removed for “portraying violence” and being too political.

Artist Luke Cornish has been accused of politicising the world-famous beach with the mural, which portrays 24 Australian Border Force officers along with the words “not welcome to Bondi”.

He says the artwork is a comment on Australia’s treatment of asylum seekers.

Although the piece has received some backlash, Waverley Council is defending it, claiming good art should solicit a strong reaction.

But Councillor Leon Goltsman tells Steve Price he wants the mural to be removed.

“Many residents are absolutely outraged over this.

“It’s portraying violence, it’s offensive. It’s putting a lot of our residents, a lot of our families and their children off.

“It shouldn’t be there.”
