Straker down the lane(s)...




Two very different works by Perth based artist Drew Straker . Above, how totally cool is the camper van painted on an old dilapidated shed behind Mexican restaurant La Cholita on Williams St. in Northbridge.. check out the driver, he's seen better days :) Love it! Below a bit further down William St. (or up depending where you're coming from) this piece luminously glowing in uniquely Straker style outside popular laneway bar Ezra Pound.  Hope you had an excellent weekend, I'm having a few 'technical difficulties' with the new desk top.. bear with me :) Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe..  p.s. check out this one here, so much talent.. !

  4. Both of these are really unique and different. Am currently reading "In Montmartre: Picasso, Matisse and the Birth of Modernist Art" by Sue Roe. If you haven't read it already, you might like it.

  5. I love that camper van. I can't tell if that front tire is painted on or if there is a real wheel pushed in there. That driver has passed his expiration date.

  6. The campervan is great and it rather tricks the eye.

  8. That camper van is very cool, it's also like it's been camouflaged...

  13. Both show his tremendous talent, but that old camper van, wow, that is just incredible. Every stroke of his brush screams, look at me! Every line tells the story of the process of age.

  15. Mexican restaurants in WA seem as strange to me as they do in France. I hope the two vehicles on top can avoid a collision.
