Austral Bricks™, today unveiled Australia’s largest tribute to US President, Barack Obama, at Horsley Park on the M7, despite the postponement of his visit.

Austral Bricks™ went ahead with the 100 square metre construction of the mural in the lead-up to the visit and following the postponement was announced, added the sign “Where the bloody hell are ya?”

The wall will be still in place in June, the next scheduled date of the president’s much anticipated visit. More than 6,000 glazed bricks were laid over a five day period by J&M Langon Bricklayers and features Austral Bricks™ Burlesque® and Dynasty® ranges.

We hope our humour is taken the right way by our friends in the US and we will take down the sign as soon as the president steps foot on our shores mid-year”, he added.

“The Brick Art™ mural demonstrates the versatility and contemporary nature of what can be achieved with bricks. Austral Bricks is excited about the opportunities that Brick Art™ can play in the creation of unique and interesting murals for architects and designers”, said Mr Mark Ellenor, NSW General Manager of Austral Bricks.
