No need to lose your head!



You might remember the 'physics defying hairstyles' on the alien-like figures featured in murals around town by painter and freelance illustrator Martin E Wills. 'Genetic Vibration #1' seen on William St. Northbridge, alongside this fantasy piece below by Auckland born artist Misery (click to see more of her beautiful work)..


... and below this piece by NYC based artist Jerkface. I may be wrong, sometimes I am :) it's possible that this wall might disappear during the Northbridge 'facelift' that is all part of the Perth City Link Project. The life-span of street art has always been transient, that's part of it's charm I guess, catch it while you can.. c'est la vie! Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe...

  8. Three different artists but such similar color schemes and styles. Very interesting indeed. There are some very strange looking creatures in that last one.

  14. The fantasy piece would have great appeal to children.

  15. It is sad that they disappear but always refreshing to see new art appearing elsewhere. A seemingly endless source of subjects for our photographs Grace.

  19. rarely have I seen street art in this shade of green. There tends to be bold blacks and reds and maybe yellows. The second mural beautifully captures the spirit of fantasy.

  22. love these! so different...yet not. nice 'catch-it-while-you-can!!
    (the one thing that kind of...sort of...bothers me...is the 'tagging' graffiti people feel the need to add to the street murals. there's so much other wall space around!)
