This colourful abstract mural by local artist Sioux Tempestt was also painted as part of Paint Subi earlier this month. It is in a laneway near the corner of Rokeby and Roberts Roads, beside a burger shop. The work-in-progress photo below shows the artwork before completion.
We also went back to see the completed mural by Spanish artist Okuda, from the recent Paint Subi project. The two huge sections of the mural feature technicolor kangaroos and a koala, plus lots of other motifs.
Here’s what it looked like while it was being painted.
This mural was also part of the Paint Subi project a few weeks back. It’s by local artist Hayley Welsh, who is shown in action above.
The mural is in a pedestrian laneway that runs off Rokeby Road and features three of Hayley’s trademark critters.
This one is helping with the painting.
There are four newly painted murals in Subiaco, from the Paint Subi project which was completed last weekend. This one is on the post office in Rokeby Road and features an old fashioned postie, a Black Swan on the wing and some paper planes.
The mural is by Evoca1, who comes from the Dominican Republic and is now based in the US, with Jarrad Martyn. The photo below shows the mural while it was still work in progress.
Here’s another artwork that we liked in the High Tide 17 art fest in Fremantle. The brightly painted road surface of Mouat Street looks oddly three-dimensional, like you should engage 4WD before driving down the bumpy road. Or could it be the world’s longest pedestrian crossing? In fact it is titled “Lowdown” and is by Trevor Richards.
If you visit Fremantle at present, you’ll notice that High Street isn’t looking its normal sedate self. There are splashed of yellow on many of the buildings, including the town hall and many of the ornate facades.
The reason is simple – Fremantle High Tide 17 is underway, and the yellow patches are part of an 800m long artwork. The art is by Paris based Swiss artist Felice Baroni and is titled “Arcs d’Ellipses”. You can only see the overall artwork from the steps leading up to the Roundhouse, at the western end of High Street. Fremantle High Tide 17 runs through to Nov 12.
We noticed this statue of a sailor at Elizabeth Quay in Perth. It is by Charles Smith and Joan Walsh-Smith and will eventually be part of the Australian Sailor Monument in Fremantle, honouring all the men and women who have played a role in Australia’s maritime history.
