Ritchey Sealy hopeful of being able to restore Broulee mural

Some one has vandalized (possibly with the initials BL) the toilets at North Broulee and covered the mosaic tiles in graffiti Locals are very disappointed and have sent in the photos below in the hope that a famiy member might identify the paint that was used as coming from their shed or that someone might identify the style of graffiti from the way it is written in pink "Half baked Imbecile Font". An artist is hopeful of restoring an iconic Broulee mural after it was defaced by vandals this week. The art work on the toilet block has stood the test of time since 2011. Local artist Ritchey Sealy painted the mural of Broulee Island on the back of the North Broulee toilet block several years ago as part of a revamp led by the Broulee Women’s Boardriders. Eurobodalla Council have now removed the offensive word and contacted Mr Sealy in the hope the mural can be restored. Mr Sealy said it was always upsetting to see any works of art vandalised. “I enjoyed doing that mural and a lot of people continue to give me good feedback on it,” he said. “We went a lot of years without it being attacked, it was always in the back of my mind that it might happen, but I wasn’t expecting to see that. “Thankfully I don’t see a problem with the restoration of it.” It is the second time this week community assets have been damaged in attacks by vandals, with the playing fields at Tuross Head’s Kyla Park Oval destroyed earlier this week by hoons. Residents with any information about either incident should contact Council Rangers on 44741000 or the NSW Police
