Tribute to Mrs S..



 Like most of us I enjoy beautifully executed street art.. if it has a story attached even better! Always delighted to come across a new piece by Perth based mural and installation artist Daek William. When in Maylands last week having lunch with mon amie française Marie it was the first thing I spotted coming along Whatley Crescent on the wall of Mrs S Cafe. Commissioned by the City of Bayswater it is the last in a series of sixteen murals in Maylands curated by Studio 281. As Mrs S Cafe is located in a heritage listed building it was a bit trickier, until delving into the history of the area it was discovered that back in the 1920's Mrs.S Harpon did in fact have tea-rooms along the crescent thus creating a connection between past and present Maylands, problem solved beautifully! You can read the story here, interesting it is! Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe..

  5. Never judge a work until it is complete. I don't like it at all at the half complete stage at the website, yet finished, it is a beautiful and being undercover, it should last many years.
