All visitors to Los Angeles hope to spot a few celebs. Here are some we saw during our visit last month.
That’s Yosemite Sam up top, Salvador Dali above, and Calvin & Hobbs below.
And Bob Marley
And of course, this familiar face too …
We also spotted these two space invader mosaics during our recent visit to Los Angeles. They are by the French street artist known as Invader and are both on Sunset Boulevard – in Silver Lake (above) and Echo Park (below).
We also noticed this mural down Nithsdale Lane in central Sydney. It’s a collaboration between three street/public artists – The Yok, Beastman and Numskull. The mural is over five years old and is tagged in a few places, but is still impressive.
We also liked this Black Swan mural in the Perth suburb of Swanbourne. It’s behind the liquor store and was painted by James Giddy.
We were in the Perth suburb of Swanbourne recently and stopped to admire these two murals by Australian artist Ian Mutch. They are both in Claremont Crescent, the main shopping street. The rainbow lorikeet above is on the side wall of the pizza restaurant, and the mural below is on the supermarket.
We also went for another look at this colourful mural which was painted by Sydney artist Beastman, assisted by students from several local colleges.
It’s painted on a hoarding near Claremont station in Perth’s western suburbs and had intriguing cutouts that become part of the artwork, and also give some interesting perspectives on the station.
While we were in Claremont, we also went to have another look at this impressive mural by Australian street/public artist Fintan Magee. It’s in a vehicle laneway at the far end of Lemon Lane and is titled “Road to Nowhere”.
