We were in central Perth earlier this week and stopped look at this unusual artwork, installed in Forrest Place. It is part of the Winter Arts Festival and is by Geoffrey Drake-Brockman. It is titled Sky and was inspired by Perth’s winter skies – though at the time the sky was unbroken blue and looking decidedly unwintry.
The artwork is amusing to photograph, since it responds to people walking past and collapses when there is no-one nearby. It will be there until June 15 and should be a great hit with children.
Here are two more murals that we noticed during our recent visit to Claremont. The zebra above is one of a pair by Anya Brock, located above one of the entrances into Claremont Quarter shopping centre. The one below is by Hannah Atcheson (aka Han Solo Art) and is in a side alley at the back of the shops.
While we were in Claremont recently, we also went back for another look at several murals that we had seen previously – including those by local Perth artist Kyle Hughes-Odgers (above) and Adelaide artist KAB101 below.
We were in the Perth suburb of Claremont recently, and stopped to admire this mushroom mural at Claremont Quarter shopping centre. It’s by Amok Island, one of our favourite local mural artists. You’ll find his work in many parts of Perth, including Curtin University, Leederville and Fremantle.
We were in the Perth suburb of Mount Hawthorn a few days back, and noticed these amusing mock street signs with a bit of a message. They are actually public artworks by German artists known as RG and were installed about five years ago.
While we were in the Perth suburb of Victoria Park on the weekend, we also stopped to admire these two murals by urban artist Fieldey.
And also this one by James Giddy. They’re all just off Albany Highway, on the sides of shops.
Here are some more of Hayley Welsh‘s artworks along Albany Highway in the Perth suburb of Victoria Park.
Some of them are right beside outdoor tables at cafes, but the cafe patrons were mostly unaware of the small artworks right beside where they were sitting.
