Barty mural making its mark

By Tanayah Wakefield

A new mural of tennis champion Ash Barty – completed just hours ahead of her Australian Open win – is wowing the Ferny Hills community.

Aerosol artist James “Smalls” Small says he is proud to have captured Barty’s determination and tenacity, as well as her Indigenous heritage, on the wall of a building at Pure Tennis Academy.

“It worked out pretty perfectly timing-wise – we had deliberately timed it to be in the Australian Open, but delays because of rain meant it wasn’t finished until the day of her final match,” Smalls explains.

“It’s directly based on a reference photo I found of her and it’s the perfect image to celebrate her success.”
