'Little voices will tell us the way'...



Spotted this work by Perth based artist Haley Welsh in Chinatown. Created during PUBLIC2015 Welsh states that although her work may seem whimsical and light hearted 'the themes to my work are usually from a darker more complex place'. Her 'Little voices' series has been 'themed around the idea of self-doubt and listening to one’s inner voices and emotions.. sometimes positive and at other times negative'. I love coming across her work around the city, will show more! Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe...

  1. It does look rather sweet until you look at the eyes which seem sad, Grace. I like it though!

  7. I think of the Pied Piper and maybe this is one character not lured by the charm of the pipe. A lovely mural.

  12. He seems to be struggling while trying to hold his head high in pride.
    Yes, at first I only saw the whimsy of a rat with an extraordinarily long tail.

  13. My first thought was, "Oh, rats!" But then I mellowed. It's cute! :)

  19. I seem to be the only one who wants to 'see' the 3rd mouse/rat around the corner. Both Queen & baby look blind.So glad you keep your eyes open!!
