Rowing in circles!



You might remember the mesmerizing styling of Welsh born Perth based artist Robert Jenkins seen here in Leederville. This mural in Mount Lawley is a brilliant way to disguise an ugly utility area don't you think! If you have 39 seconds to spare :) take a look at this time lapse video showing the design process from start to fini, incroyable! So worth a look, for most of us a wall that size would be far too daunting. Hope your week is off to a good start, happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe...p.s. I have a confession to make, there was no treading on the mill today :) too b____y hot!

  1. I very much like the curvy lines and the use of black and white with just a bit of blue. Great way to hide an otherwise ugly building.

  3. I love building art...including some graffiti :) Watched the video...have never figured out how the artists get it right on such a huge scale, but appreciate that they do. Sadly, a little piece of local building art was painted over recently when a new restaurant moved in...happy I took a photo but regret that the building art is gone. Happy Tuesday to you :)

  8. This quite impressive and a little bit dizzying. I'm feeling a little sorry for those guys who are tumbling out of their boats. I'm very, very impressed at how anyone can create such gorgeous patterns like this.

  9. Reminds me of an exhibit now at the Hirshhorn Museum here in D.C.

  13. I like to see utilities etc. covered up. This design, though, is a bit dizzying for yours truly. That video is crazy --- good thing for my equilibrium it wasn't any longer than 39 seconds. : )

  22. Ah, the rhythms of this composition. Loved the video too. Proves the final product was designed before the mural was started. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
