Cats, pirates and elephants down the lane..



Back in Mt Lawley. After the 30 Artists, 30 walls, 1 Laneway project during the Beaufort Street Festival last year Grosvenor Lane alone provides a multitude of marvelous murals. The clowder of cats above was painted by Jackson et famille.. Jackson the son of a friend who owned the house was thrilled to be painting alongside the other artists, a future muralist in the making! To quote Shrink pirate artist below 'extreme boredom can do strange things to the mind', agreed!


...and last but not least the mural below by a favourite of mine James Giddy, you've seen him before on the blog.. love his gentle creatures around town, detest taggers, especially over other artists work grrrr! It's the last day for City Daily Photo members to catch that illusive 'camera shy self-portrait' I'd better get onto it today :) have you got yours sorted? Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe..

  5. And someone told me you can't herd cats! Well, I guess you can if you tell them you're going to paint their portraits. And what a cute mural that is!

  12. These are all great, it would be hard to pick just one. I think the cats might be my favorite of the three. I'm with you on the taggers. That is so rude.

  13. Being a cat person, I must go with the cats.

    Perhaps an elephant can trample the taggers.

  14. So I see a lot of this street art nowadays and I just can't make up my mind whether I really like it or it looks something of an eyesore. What do you think?

  28. Love the expression on Shrink's boater's face. It's like he's saying, "Nothing good will come of this." Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
