'Eversiempre' Argentina..



Walking along William St. in Northbridge last week just by chance I looked up and over the tops of the buildings below spotted another in the series of street murals created in and around Perth city during the Form Public project in April. This huge scale work by Argentinian artist Ever is on the opposite end of the Central TAFE building to the Pixel Pancho here.


Titled 'Migration' Eversiempre lists Van Gogh as one of his inspirations, I see evidence of that in this work.. I was happy to catch the gentleman in the shot below to show size perspective but had to smile as he hurried past real quick after noticing the decapitated head, I think I even heard a stifled 'gulp' :) Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe...

  7. Yikes! I don't blame the guy for scramming! It's a bit fearsome for male and female. What female would play with a decapitated head and what male would want to be decapitated? Or maybe, just maybe, the male head indicates that we have, in some important ways, both a female and a male side. Oui? Non?

    Migration... hmm. A tough subject for sure, Grace.
    "We" aka Germany fight a lot. Obviously not just us. Huhhh. Goosebumps.

  10. Strong mural, but I can't tell what is going on here. Is that head really decapitated? Or is this symbolic of something else? But I can tell that the female figure is powerful.

  12. I was hoping one of your other commentors would explain all to me. I'm seeing the head crying the river that makes up the woman's dress. Beyond that I'm at a loss. I keep thinking there's a double image hidden here but I can't quite see it. All in all, this image really made me look hard. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

  14. There is so much to like about the recent artworks created in Perth. One of the stand out features of them is there size. This is huge and impressive.

  15. I looked at the other work & it's all a bit weird to say the least - decapitation all over the place & not just heads!

  21. So, here is the question. If a work of public art is well painted, but the subject is revolting, is it good art or not? I think I am happy this one is in Oz, not near me.

  22. That is fantastic! I very much want to go to Perth! If for nothing else, for the art...
    Really nice photos Grace!
