Muchas gracias Sr. Curiot.. Mexican magic!



Oh my bloomin' gosh! Walking down Murray St. early on Saturday morning BAM .. there it was! However you feel about street art I really can't see how anyone would view this as less than fabulouso. Painted last month during the FormPUBLIC 2015 project by Mexican artist Curiot the complexity of this huge scale work is astounding, the subject matter.. koalas munching on eucalyptus leaves couldn't be more appropriate.  In the shot below as well as the brilliant blue sky I enjoyed the curved mural following the rounded lines of the QV.1 building behind..


... and how lucky, the eucalyptus tree across the road, mixing reality with art :)


Below looking down Murray St. to the city centre showing the grand scale of this project with city skyscrapers in the far background. The Hertz building never looked so good! Hope you all had a brilliant Mother's day and are ready for the week ahead, happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe..

  2. It's gorgeous, especially the blue tint as you go down. Very clever getting the "real thing" in the same shot!

  3. That really looks as though it might have been part of the architect's design; it fits in so naturally.

  4. This is wonderful, Grace! It looks like the wall was made specifically for this piece!
    I knew that you would check out the youtube on my train noise mural - it's great isn't it?

  7. This really is quite spectacular. And, I think it would fit in Arizona very well, koalas and all.

  12. OK, Grace, you've got me. This is spectacular. I like art, not graffiti. This is exceptional art.

  13. This piece integrates beautifully into the design of the building. The gradation of color behind the black figures lends itself to subtly. Not as bombastic as it could be.

  19. Fabulous. An Aztec koala. Or maybe a Kachina Koala. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

  20. The scale makes it look a little out of place and overwhelming but the detail is astounding. I expect people stand for ages there looking up and enjoying the pictures.
