Touching on the past..



Ever since I heard of this work by George Domahidy on the corner of Daphne and Angove St. in North Perth I've been keen to see it.. yesterday I wasn't disappointed, it's fabulous! Painted during the 2013 Angove Street Festival on the wall of Concept Enigma, the design touches on the past with glimpses of the trams that ran along Angove St. in the early 1900's. See that sky above, that's what a stormy day looks like in Perth :) couple of detail shots below. Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe..

  10. Very nice work, touching a couple of areas of interest of mine. It is rather a shame it is not a permanent work.

  14. She looks like a very modern woman juxtaposed against the nostalgic trams. I'm sure this mural stops traffic.
