'Flying Australian things' ...



Two of my favourite Perth artists side by side! Spotted in a carpark in Coogee Street Mount Hawthorn alongside many other artists (show you more next Monday) the theme being 'flying Australian things'. The 'wom-bat' painted by surf, skate and street artist Fieldey, aspiring artists out there see her in action on Fieldey TV Art & Tutorials here.  The wom-bat, as elusive as the now extinct Tasmanian Tiger which fell foul of the most dangerous predator the world has known.. man!
  

The beautifully coloured Rosella (parrot) painted by Brenton See. Inspired by David Attenborough's documentaries Brenton's work, a combination of animals and geometric shapes, tells the story of the unpredictable relationship between nature and man in this, I want to say dodgy :) but will say insecure world! Hope you had/are still having a good weekend, happy Monday, take care and stay safe...

  1. Love the Rosella, but find the wom-bat a bit scary even though it's meant to be funny. Maybe it's just that the Tasmanian devils scare me.

  15. Two different mural styles, but they complement each other here. Flying wombats is a bit of a stretch, but anything goes for art.

  18. I'd not like to encounter a winged wom-bat in the wild!
    Fun to see a painted one, though.

  19. I wonder if the wom-bat can fly as good as the parrot with its small wings :)
    Nice ones, Grace !
