Murals by Mike Makatron, other artists to grace Murray Bridge's Seventh Street

Melbourne-based street artist Mike Makatron has been hired to paint one of three new murals in Murray Bridge's central business district, starting in the next fortnight.

The first mural - featuring a woman in a floral dress lying on grass - will be painted on a side wall at 10-20 Seventh Street, facing the Bank SA car park.

It is due to be completed in time for the Murray Bridge Fringe weekend, February 28 to March 1.

A second mural will be completed by the end of April on the Seventh Street wall of accounting firm Murray Nankivell, and negotiations about a third site are continuing.

Artists for each mural are being chosen by a council-backed public art committee from a shortlist put together by Adam Poole-Mottishaw, the artist behind the Jervois dairy factory mural.

Building owners and tenants are also helping with the selection of final designs.

The mural project's $30,000 cost will be met by the Murray Bridge council and local Rotary Clubs.
