Hel(vetica) forest.....!


Howard Lane just off St. George's Terrace was one of the first to be upgraded in the City Laneways Enhancement project. This super cool quirky mural (the unsuspecting guy on the corner was an added bonus haha!) titled 'Night Forest' by Brooklyn based artist Yok in his very distinctive style which I believe originated right here in Perth and can be seen all around the world. I wonder if Daryl in NYC has seen a Yok on her travels about town! Just around the corner is the doorway into Helvetica one of the many small trendy bars in 'the hidden doorway' club scene that is growing in Perth, Yok has been busy here also. There are so many unique murals around Perth created by local and international artists I thought I might just pop one in now and then, what do you think? Hope your week is progressing well, take care and stay safe.....

  2. So bright and vibrant! I love seeing these kinds of things because - you just won't find them in tiny little towns where I am! (Lucky for me NYC is so close:) I love the added bonus of that guy - he fits nicely, haha!

  6. That guy is a spy for the CIA. But you knew that.

    It is a nice mural. My only recommendation is that you personally check out all those trendy bars in the "hidden doorway club scene" and report back. You maybe ought not to drink in every one of them though or you'll end up photographing the murals upside down. :)

  7. He's kind of good looking... :-) Did I just say that? Really?

    Love the blue!

  8. There must be a trend to paint murals because I'm starting to see quite a lot of them going up around town. That club scene might be worth checking out.

  9. Great work. Yes, first image is excellent. Please have a good Wednesday.

  10. Sorry, Grace, I am no fan of graffiti. I think the attention we give them encourages them to deface more and more walls.

    1. Normally I'd agree Jack, when it's a mish mash of different unwanted tags, but when it's a commissioned work by an artist to brighten up an otherwise dingy dreary space we might have to agree to disagree haha!

  12. You could have called the first photo, 'Artist takes a break from his artistic endeavour'.

  15. Although I am selective in giving approval to "murals" or "graffiti" this one passes the test. Love the colors and action!

  17. Some murals lighten up a dull wall and this one sure does.

  18. I absolutely agree with Jack and also the so-called 'artists' usually deliver quite poor things, with a few rare and welcome exceptions.

  19. I'll stand in Jack's corner on this one too. Let the old city buildings stand unobstructed with tis paint.

  23. Perth should be very pleased as a City to have you blogging about this lovely place. I have been catching up with your photos. They are just super, Grace. Looks like the temperatures are dropping a tad too. That can't be bad. No street art like this in Coventry...looks so cool.

  24. As long as it's commissioned work in an area that needs revival and it's nothing offensive, so be it. This work looks unique. You should join us at Monday Mural.
