Seen in Northbridge.....


The suburb of Northbridge, separated from the city centre by the railway lines will soon be welcomed into the fold when Perth City Link is completed in 2015 (?), lots of time to plan ahead for a visit :) Northbridge has always been the more 'colourful' side of town but the development of the Piazza, corner James and Lake Streets, and the Perth Cultural Centre has already lifted it's profile, with many more upgrades evolving as the link project proceeds. The untitled mural above by the Ololo 'collective' and the Arch by Australian artist Lorenna Grant are just two of the artworks on the Piazza. Hope you had a good weekend and are ready to face the new week, take care.....This post is linked to Monday Mural

  4. The arch is brilliant. Isn't Northbridge the gay epicentre of Perth?

  5. Sending a link to this post and photos to my sons, now residing in Jindabyne. They've taken jobs in a snowboard/ski shoppe for winter and are renting rooms from a nice young couple with a very nice home. Both sons are excellent snowboarders and looking forward to Winter sports. They sound so happy. You Aussies treat people right.

  12. The mural is excellent. I get the impression that some places have a serious mural painted on walls in order to discourage the vandals from painting their less skillful stuff there. I wonder if that is at work here. (And, I love the ribbony structure in the second photo, too . . . Perth has wonderful public art.)

  14. Love it all!! What a great project the car park is - more wanted! I've known Lorenna for ages. So glad you are able to cruise around for us unable to do so.

  15. Really like both pieces. The mural has a mysterious quality to it, like a scene out of an experimental French film. The jagged line of the top of the wall adds to the feeling of the piece. Consider linking to Monday Mural.

  19. Gee Grace. Northbridge looks like "where its at" for street artists. I can imaging a few people pondering on what that black and white arch is meant to be.

  23. what a quirky place, i love the art and the arch

  24. Amazing!! Would like so much to visit again and see for myself.
    Thanks a lot, Grace, for sharing!!

  25. Love their red 'lips'!. and the jagged arch ties in well with the jagged roof line of the muralled building!

  26. Hey, Grace, thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural. My earlier comment says it all for me.

  27. Based on those two fantastic pieces, it will be a great addition!

  28. That is an interesting looking arch! I like areas in cities that are under transition. They are much more interesting to wander through than one that is already gentrified (and as a result usually homogeneous)

  29. I'm not so sure about the archway but the mural is simply gorgeous

    ReplyDelete
  30. Both art works are really cool. The second one is amazing!

  31. That quirky arch appeals to me. I wonder about the choice of blue for the mural... if the sky's the right colour, the wall and the sky almost mix into each other.
