Not so scary piranha!



When walking Perth and suburban lane-ways you never know what you might come across these days. Always a treat to find a piece by Dutch artist living in WA Amok Island.. here behind footwear and apparel boutique Highs and Lows aka Hal in Claremont.You've seen Amok's work, inspired by 'animals, nature, especially the sea' many times here and if lucky anywhere from Amsterdam, NYC and many places in-between.. even somewhere in a French forest :) Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe...

  7. It's too bad that painting doesn't have better exposure ... it looks out of place stuck there with the garbage cans. Piranhas are not nice fish, though. This painting is rather like Disney making a fierce lion into a tame kitty cat. :))

  10. You have found a great mural. Love the art work. Know a fellow with a giant piranha. It is a friendly looking fish, but I've never put a finger in the tank.

  14. Highs and Lows could have been anything. Footware and apparel, apparently.

  15. If I caught that piranha Grace I would have to throw him back. He is too cool to be on the end of a fishing line.

  17. That's the kind of piranha I could learn to love.

  18. Looks like he´s contently smiling, Grace - is that good or bad? ;-)

  19. An interesting subject for a mural. Maybe the intention is to give the usual killing machine a more friendly profile.

  20. On the contrary, that's a very artistic piranha! (Bloghopping here :) )
