Rolf Harris mural will soon disappear in Melbourne

The Guardian has reported that the owner of an Australian hardware store has invited a survivor of sexual abuse to paint over a mural by singer Rolf Harris.

Harris, who repeatedly visited Vancouver over his long career, was recently convicted of indecent assault on four girls in Britain between 1968 and 1986.

The man who wrote "Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport" and "Vancouver Town" was sentenced to five years and nine months in prison.

One of his victims, Vanessa Feltz, claimed that Harris sexually molested her on live television.

As a result of Harris's convictions, the owner of Penhalluriack's Building Supplies in Melbourne reportedly wants a mural by the singer removed from the store's exterior wall.

"I have asked a victim to perform the obliteration using bright red paint," Frank Penhalluriack told the Guardian.

Harris painted the image of his face as the head of a kangaroo in 1990, accompanied by the slogan: "Trust British Paints Sure Can!"

He last performed in Vancouver at the PNE in 2010.
