Fremantle roosters..

 

Spotted le grand chook when we were in Fremantle last week. 'Fremantle Roosters' was commissioned by Silverleaf Investments and painted in July by Dutch born Fremantle based multi-disciplinary artist Amok Island. You can see St. John's Anglican Church in the background below, the inspiration for the mural came from 'some old historic photos taken from the church where you could see a lot of backyards full of chicken coops, so they thought it was fitting to do to a bit of a historic reference,' the artist said. Amok Island's stylized geometric murals can be seen all around the world, we are lucky to have him call WA home. Happy new week, let's hope it's a good one, take care and stay safe..

  17. There is something delightful about chooks, I will always migrate towards a painting that has them in it.

  19. A GREAT SPELL CASTER (DR. EMU) THAT HELP ME BRING BACK MY EX GIRLFRIEND.
    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
