Spotlighting the transiency of street art..



Back in 2014 street art in Perth took off in a really big way with the inaugural FORMPublic event bringing together talented Perth street artists with renowned artists from around the world. It was incroyably exciting to see artists at work on projects, some small and some so immense that cherry-pickers were required. I did show the finished work in the car park in Murray Street here and ROA and Phlegm at work here..


The car park and surrounding area is being demolished as part of the Perth City Link development. This is one of my favourite projects, linking Northbridge with the CBD for the first time in over a hundred years. These shots taken from the top level of the car park over the road.. I will keep my eyes open to see if the fabulous ROA and Phlegm murals, unlike most of the smaller pieces, survive the progress! Happy Friday, take care and stay safe...

  3. Everywhere new is being built. And also in such a narrow place. The construction site fence is nice and the first photo is really lovely.

  4. A big city with big ideas and projects. I love the first photo with all the views in each hole, reminds me of a puzzle. It will be interesting to see the final look when it is completed.

  7. Great shots. I especially like that first one. It has the look almost of a mosaic, something interesting in each circle. I'm glad those bigger art pieces will survive the construction. It would be a shame for it all to be lost.

  12. I know it's funny maybe, but in all that is going on, it's the lovely mural that stands out most to me! Great shots Grace, all of them.

  14. I suppose that street art, by its very nature, is "temporary." But I hope some survives. It's great to be back and visiting your wonderful blog and seeing your beautiful photos!

    Does Perth have murals everywhere? All we have is graffiti!
