Slightly Moroccan with a Middle Eastern twist...



While in Subiaco a few days ago I came across, for the first time, the work of Perth artist known as  wellshaken. I wasn't unhappy when the gentleman above strode into the shot just as I clicked, adds to the image don't you think? If you check out the website you will see that both of the walls, here and below, were in shocking condition before the artist, repairing the walls to a paintable state, adorned them in a myriad of colours. The mural above getting plenty of love in a high traffic area on Park St. whereas...


... the piece above on the wall behind Meeka Restaurant below, is hard to find, especially when hobbling :) The artist describes these pieces as Moroccan lantern style.. the cuisine in Meeka Restaurant is described as 'modern Australian with a Middle Eastern twist', however slight the connection I feel a similar, smaller adornment in sympathetic colours would greatly enhance the entrance to Meeka, what do you think? Happy Monday, take care and stay safe..

  18. I also like the man in the photo. Somehow it reminds me of a Beatles album cover. I like the Eastern shapes and the bright colors too! Great find, Grace. :)

  19. I've been looking for that second mural, I think that with all those colours it's just "me". I agree that the shopfront should be adorned with that mural, would look so much better...
