The transformation of Banna Lane from a dull, dreary laneway into a vibrant corridor of art is set to continue this week, as four new artists unleash their creativity on back walls throughout the alley.
The artists are in town to prepare murals for Banna Lane Festival, which kicks off on May 3.
One of the talented creators is George Rose, a Melbourne-born mural artist who will be turning the wall on the corner of Banna Lane and Ulong Street into a hyper-bright depiction of some local flora.
"I've decided I want to paint some botanicals and so I've been researching some of the Australian natives that used to grow around Griffith," she said.
"I like the artwork to have some sort of relationship to where I am painting."
I'm going to be using a lot of really bright oranges and bright greens ... I never do normal colour palettesGeorge Rose
But while the plants she's painting on the wall might look familiar, they won't be exactly what you're used to seeing out in the bush around Griffith.
"I'm going to be using a lot of really bright oranges and bright greens ... I never do normal colour palettes," George said.
Further down the laneway, a very different style of art is being created.
Sydney artist Reuben Boughtwood, more commonly known as Reubszz, plans to create a realistic artwork, depicting a Riverina grower on his field.
"I like to acknowledge the people of the area and so my piece here is going to do with farming and really the rural side of Griffith," Reuben said.
"I paint realism and I always reference my own photographs in my work, so I went out and took some photographs on a Griffith farm on Tuesday."
In his hyper-realistic style, Reuben will be painting a mural created by combining three photographs he took this week, centred around a Riverina farmer and his love for the country.
Reuben said he finds it very impotant to create a mural that resonates with the Griffith community.
"I don't want to come to a place and paint something that has no relevance to the area - I want people to have a connection with it."
Mandy Schoene-Salter, better known as Man.DE, and local artist Allan McKenzie Senior are also creating murals for the Banna Lane Festival.
Man.DE's style is descibed as colourful depictions of nature and Allan McKenzie creates contemporary Indigenous artworks.
All four murals will be finished by May 3 when the public will be invited to attend art talks, tours, and youth programs in the alleyway throughout the week.
But the works will truly come alive at the Lighting up the Laneway party on May 8, which is being held in conjunction with the Streetscapes festival.
