Jill Meagher Graffitti

A giant graffiti mural has been sprayed onto the wall of the Forum Theatre in the CBD in memory of Jill Meagher.

The mural stretches 20 metres down Hosier lane and reads Rest In Peace Jill.

An unknown artist worked on the graffiti late yesterday.

A City Council spokesperson says Council will make a decision on whether it will be painted over at a later date.

  • Hoiser Lane was a forever evolving artwork.. you couldnt walk down there without seeing something new.. but now that huge tribute has erased all of that as well as any possibilty for someone to add their peice to that wall, imagine the outrage.. i'm not saying her death wasn't tragic but this mural is far too much

  • Firstly Denise relax, Hosier Lane is a designated legal graffiti area so he won't be charged with anything :p
    Colin the graffiti landscape in the lane, like everywhere else, is ever changing and not defined by perceived rules of taste. Things get written over all the time it's how it goes. If you'd been down there recently you'd know the majority of stuff up is rubbish. It's a far cry from how it was a few years ago.
    Good on him for doing it.

  • With all due respects people need to settle down now with the flowers it just goes to show in Australia its a peace protest if it was the middle east there would be anarchy and chaos in the streets I'm not in the mood for peace.

  • Tanya rasises a good point. A girl went missing in Kew at the same time as Jill and no one gave a shit.

  • @ Tanya & Denise don't you know that you have to show more sympathy to those who the media tell you to, you can only mourn for Jill & the Aussie Ball guy who died in Vegas, probably due to booze or drugs or possibly both. Forget about the kids starving in Africa, or the women & children killed in war by our county to get more oil for the USA, it's only these 2 you may mourn until the media tells you who's next.
