Water-wise!



If ever a building needed (t)arting up it's the Water Corp building in Leederville, no disrespect to the architects but it is a little functional :) I do sometimes wonder how architects feel about the huge, often unrelated to what goes on in the building, murals painted on their creations. In this case the murals are water themed.. wise choice. The pair of Ibis (water birds) above by Perth artist James Giddy who you've seen many times here, absolutely enhances and the giant wave covering three walls by traveling Chinese artist DALeast, see more of his work here, is spectacular in it's detail (so worth enlarging) I wouldn't be surprised if you've already seen his work in your city. Both murals are part of FormPUBLIC 2015. So much art so little time to check it out :) Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe.. p.s. thanks for all the lovely comments yesterday, catch up today!

  7. That wave is awesome! The bird in the second shot looks like it's about to siphon the fuel out of that motorcycle.

  13. These are both really cool, Grace. They seem to fit (and dress up) the plain architecture quite well.

  25. Worlds largest doodle - would love to see something like that made 3-d or in neon. Would cost a fortune though.

    btw: (architects often hate us)
