Pelican Presence..


While we were in Applecross last week I was delighted to spot a new mural by Dutch artist, living in Perth, Amok Island.. see more of his work here. If you have a minute, literally a minute :) you can see here the enormous scale of this piece filmed by drone from above by Peacock Visuals on completion. A couple of shots below from the pedestrian crossing over the Canning Highway to show perspective. I'm very much looking forward to heading out to Ravensthorpe to see this, again filmed by Peacock Visuals, you won't regret the time viewing and plus you get to see some gorgeous WA countryside, bonus! Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe..

  1. I've always had a soft spot for Pelicans since I first saw them at London Zoo when I was about six years old. I can't imagine what it's like to start on an artwork on this scale.

  4. That pelican is huge and it fits so beautifully into it's surroundings. That link to the silos was amazing. What masterpieces.

  7. You might say his work is a monumental success! Loved his other via the link you showed. I'm not sure what the towers were, though. Look like our midwestern silos. Beautiful photos, and I do like the Pelican. Of course, the pelican is one of my favorite birds...

  10. This piece really enhances the building and the area around it. Of course, the beautiful blue skies don't hurt either.

  12. Well spotted Grace. If I drive on Canning Highway I go the opposite way, so the mural would be on my back, reason why I hadn't seen it.
    Love the videos, those banksias are fabulous!! He has a banksia at Curtin Uni too.
