Public Art....




Although one of the most expensive car parks in the CBD because of its close proximity to the city centre up until a few weeks ago this was a drab and cheerless space.. now awash with colour and creative energy on every side it almost takes your breath away.. still not parking here though :) but will visit and admire often! We were lucky enough to watch Belgian artist ROA and Phlegm from the UK at work before leaving for Sydney.. while away Perth's Stormie Mills finished his piece, Sydney's Beastman collaborated with Adelaide's Vans The Omega to create a vibrant wall opposite Perth's Last Chance Studios and another collaboration between The Yok and Sheryo. How about New York artist Gaia, that's his work bottom right hand corner.. so impressive. There are those who will never think of street art as other than graffiti but after watching these unbelievably huge scale works taking shape I am in awe of the talent at work here in Perth over the last two weeks. Would love it if you could take a minute to embiggen and check out the detail. Hope the sun is shining on your Easter weekend, take care.....

  9. Wild, colorful, but a little disconcerting. Would I want my expensive Range Rover (not that I have one) under that snake?

  10. So cool Grace. I can't help but make a comparison between the ancient Egyptians and this carpark. Centuries ago the Egyptians covered their buildings and monuments in hyroglyphics and illustrations. Today we cover them in artworks. Wonder if a future generation will try and interpret what they mean? Ciao J.

  15. Bring it on! We want more. I'm so frustrated with Local Government who won't let artists be creative.

  18. wow, these are so impressive, even if the snake kind of creeps me out!

  19. Wow! I love it. All of them. Though, when that snake bites its tail, it seems as if he is going to leap off that building (and I hope you are far away!)
