Paintings of Jacinda Ardern to feature on Melbourne skyline

Paintings of Jacinda Ardern hugging a Muslim woman after the Christchurch mosque shootings will feature on Melbourne's skyline in a community-funded art project.

Images of the New Zealand PM wearing a headscarf in solidarity with Muslims after the March 15 massacre have featured prominently around the world.

The world's tallest building - the 829m-high Burj Khalifa in Dubai - lit up with the photo in praise of her compassionate response to the shootings.

Melbourne locals have now raised more than A$11,000 ($11,750) to have street artist Loretta Lizzio paint images of Ardern's embrace on the side of 23-metre silos in the suburb of Brunswick.

*I'm feeling sick!*
