Bridging the divide...



This collaboration between Sydney artist Beastman and Adelaide artist Vans the Omega on the Wellington St. side of One40William is so fresh they were still putting the finishing touches to it when I took these shots on Friday. It was a little hard to find a good spot to take in the whole mural but you can see much more detail on the FORM website here..


I thought you might like to see how the Perth City Link project is progressing. I took the shot below from the top of the Horseshoe Bridge..you can see the Perth Arena (my header shot) across on the right. This connection between Northbridge and the CBD is going to be spectacular.. there are heritage buildings on both sides of the divide that will now get the focus and attention that they deserve..


The shot below looking down Wellington St. towards the Perth Cultural Centre over the Horseshoe Bridge to the left in Northbridge. In my humble :) opinion this project is by far the best of all the building going on in Perth right now.. I'm looking forward to showing you the finished vista. Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe...

  6. I love the mural - you probably knew that! I think I have to get a map of Perth out and figure out exactly where we are looking in the construction shots - it's about time I knew where I was down there. ;-))

  12. Now this is the kind of mural that appeals to me! Lots of bright color and a meaning behind it. :)
    I think it's also good to take pictures of the construction around the city. It will be fun to look back on those shots when the development is finished.

  25. I had read about the mural on the weekend papers, it looks great! The Perth city link is certainly going to be a big improvement in that area.

  26. I see the same coming to us that happened last year - we´ll step off the train, get out of the station and wonder where the heck we are?! ;-)
    (It really was like that - 2006 to 2013 soooo much had changed, we were lost for a couple of seconds... or minutes).
    Beautiful murals, Grace, I just love how you Perthies (or in this case Aussie artists) manage to keep the old in style and add the new!
