Monday Mural - The ladies at the Vat 2 Restaurant

As I mentioned last week, I also saw some murals in the dining area of the Vat 2 Restaurantin Bunbury.

The beautiful ladies were painted in July 2017, by Perth artist ArtbyDestroy, who also painted the murals from last week's post.
Apparently there are 4 faces, but I only saw 3, the missing one might have been in one of the private dining rooms.

When we had lunch at the Vat 2 Restaurant in Bunbury (crn Jetty Road and Casuarina Drive) during our recent trip down south, I came across some great murals.
Outside the complex the VAT 2 mural with a mermaid on one side, and a ship in a bottle on the other side, links beautifully with the site of the restaurant next to the beach. 
Painted in May 2018 by Perth artist ArtbyDestroy.






Inside, by the entrance to the restaurant a wall of words and a pod of dolphins also painted by Art by Destroy in November 2017.





Next week I'll show you the other murals inside the restaurant.

Monday Mural - Various in Bunbury

The 3 murals posted today were all seen during our stop-over in the town of Bunbury when we travelled to Margaret River in December.
Bunbury in regional Australia, is apparently home to the largest collection of street and public art. Quite impressive!

Just outside Mojo's restaurant in Victoria Street (where we had lunch), this sea container had a wall painted by Tattoo artist Tim Howe - a woman in an aquatic setting, which was painted in November 2015.

The next mural in a laneway off Victoria Street next to Trafalgars Hotel, and across from Ian Mutch's Autumn leaves mural,  the words Rebel, Rebel, were painted by Australian artist, typographer and illustrator Gemma O'Brien.

She does a lot of advertising commissions for big companies, and a number of her projects have been recognized by the New York The Type Directors Club, with awards of typographic excellence.



This last one also in the same laneway off Victoria Street,  where Kyle Hughes-Odgers mural was painted, but behind a closed fence to which I presume was a bar. 
I couldn't find who painted it.




And a very happy birthday to my Mom who celebrates her 82nd birthday today 10th February.
