Artist Jordan Lucky brings murals to Mayfield


“Murals and Mayfield – a match made in heaven” – that’s how Newcastle-based artist Jordan Lucky describes his latest work. 

The talented creative will be adding a touch of colour to one of his favourite suburbs this weekend… and he’s welcoming spectators along for the ride. 

Live Painting with Jordan Lucky is scheduled for the corner of Roe Street and Maitland Road on Friday 7 and Saturday 8 July from 11am to 3pm. 

Passersby can stay and watch as he transforms the space into a multi-story artwork to the backdrop of live music and an artist meet and greet. 

The event is thanks to a collaboration between the Mayfield Business Improvement Association and Playstate Curate. 

“We are so pleased to be working with the City of Newcastle and the Mayfield BIA to really bring this space to life,” says Playstate Curate director Isaac Whitten. 

“It also gives us a unique opportunity to engage with the local community and for the community to put a face to the artwork.”

Lucky’s trademark style is a mix of realism, surrealist elements, and vibrant pops of colour, often featuring native flora and fauna.  

“For our Roe Street project, we are really excited to bring something abundantly positive and bright that reflects the growing creative community in Mayfield,” Mr Whitten told the Newcastle Weekly

“Expect (Jordan) Lucky to push his modern Australian murals to the next level with a flowy, eye-catching layout featuring stunning Australian natives in ultra-realism.” 

For Lucky, this collaboration offers an opportunity to visit one of his favourite spaces in Newcastle. 

“Personally I think murals and Mayfield are a match made in heaven,” he said.

“The area is home to a growing, quirky, grassroots creative community and it’s inspiring to see the cityscape begin to reflect that with the help of Mayfield BIA.  

“Growing up I have watched the changes and growth of the area and it’s plain to see Mayfield is fastly-becoming a destination with a lot of cool cafes like Onyx, Side Pocket Espresso, Equium Social, and a growing nightlife thanks to the efforts of local venues, shout out to The Stag, The Mayfield Hotel and The Beauford.  

“The whole area is become one big collaboration of cool and I’m excited to add my energy and art to the mix.” 

Live music will start as part of Mayfield Business Improvement Association’s “Live Spots” program on Saturday 10am until noon with Kingsley James and 12.30pm to 2.30pm with Emily A Smith. 

This is a free event sponsored by Mayfield Business Improvement Association in conjunction with City of Newcastle.
