We were walking down Rokeby Road in the Perth suburb of Subiaco a few days back and stopped to admire the mural “Subiaco was built on a Sunday” by local artist Melski. It’s in an alley and consequently often half in the shade. However around noon at this time of the year, you see it in full sunshine.
Painted dolphin happy hour outside the State Library of Western Australia – part of The Big Splash WA. That’s “Sailor Jerry” by Megan Baker on the left, and the Bowie-esque “Ziggy Starfin” by the Anthologie Creative Team on the right.
This Big Splash WA dolphin is in Perth Cultural Centre. It was painted by Bec Inwood and is titled “Not Black and White”.
Noticed plenty of colourful dolphins in central Perth a few days back. They’re part of Big Splash WA, an event to raise awareness and funding for mental health among children and adolescents. This one is by Jessica Bell and is titled “Laughter”.
We noticed this dog in Mandurah south of Perth a few weeks back. It’s “The Drover’s Dog” patiently waiting for its master outside the inn – by Claire Bailey.
While we were in Perth’s port city of Fremantle recently, we stopped to admire this bus shelter that has been painted by by local street/public artist Stormie Mills. It’s across the road from the Fremantle Arts Centre.
Last week we visited the Fremantle Arts Centre to see the current exhibition, “In Cahoots” which runs through to 28 January.
We especially liked the series of photographs based on Star Wars and comic book superheroes, by Tony Albert, David C Collins and collaborators.
And also this demonstration of how to turn a dead car door into an artwork, by Sean Cordeiro, Claire Healy and Kumpaya Girgiba.
