More 'Too Much Colour'.. no way!



It always makes me happy when I come across work by large scale mural collective Too Much Colour. Artists Darren Hutchens, Dan Huggan and Larry 'Lorenzo' Halden work harmoniously together to bring colour, not too much :) to otherwise quite uninteresting spaces. Here on Scarborough Beach, if you look to the left in the shot below you can juuuuust catch a glimpse of the ocean, the content of this mural is absolutely perfect for this spot, even on a dull day, as it was on Monday when I took these shots..


I was lucky enough to chat with two of the group when Aimee and I were in North Perth at the weekend.. they were busy colouring-up a lane-way with a familiar character that you might remember here on Bathers Beach in Fremantle, this time munching a donut! They did agree to pose but were, as street artists sometimes can be, a little shy :) Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe...

  31. I am loving how some of this street art seem to be colour coordinated! It's actually quite wonderful to have this kind of alternative art installations and we should encourage the youth in Claremont to do the same instead of writing vulgarity instead.
