Botanical flourish to Katoomba Street Art Walk

A new mural has appeared in Katoomba's Street Art Walk.

It's the work of new Katoomba resident Nastia Gladushchenko, and features a protea, grevillia and banksia, that the artist saw when walking on bush trails at Echo Point and Leura Cascades.

She painted the mural over four days and has received a lot of positive comments.

As I was painting the mural quite a few locals came up to me and said they would like new works.

"As I was painting the mural quite a few locals came up to me and said they would like new works," Ms Gladushchenko said. "They were interested to see it changing."

The artist has a background as an interior designer, but has long been drawn to art, particularly floral-based art.

She and her partner made a spontaneous decision to move from Newtown to the Blue Mountains after photographing a wedding at Mt Victoria and feeling a desire to get out of the urban environment and back to nature, enjoying some open space.

Ms Gladushchenko is encouraging other artists to contribute to the Katoomba Street Art Walk by contacting MYST (Mountains Youth Services Team) or Street Art Murals Australia.
