Monday Mural - The fox and the man with the birds

I love murals and street art. If you like murals or have a mural you'd like to post, this meme is for you.  Just follow the Linky steps below.  Once you start looking you will find murals everywhere.  The "Monday Mural" meme goes live on Monday at 12,01AM, Perth,Western Australian time. Be sure to link back to this blog and visit your fellow posters. Looking forward to your mural finds this week.     Thanks, Sami. 

Two murals from Bunbury again : 

The fox mural, titled "Growing Through Hardship", was painted by Andrew Fraser in 2015 at the Lotteries House Car Park, off Wellington Street.

Andrew, was born and raised in Bunbury, and is also the founder of Six Two Three Zero, a initiative that seeks to use street art as a catalyst for urban development & social change by bringing communities together in conversation and creative inspiration.  He's been responsible for the commissioning of over 30 large scale murals in the Bunbury central business district, some of which I've been showing on my Monday Murals since December 2020.

Just behind the small house on the other side of the fence was a mural by Jackson Harvey , painted in 2016 at AK Home Builders.

Jackson is a tattooist who lives and works in Bunbury, who is also passionate about public art. He has a background in architectural design and visual arts, and his murals usually feature tattoo related imagery and ornament.

Monday Mural - A pop of colour

Two murals from our November trip to Bunbury painted in the unmistakable style of Perth artist - Anya Brock. 

The first - the Ibis, can be seen at Graham Bricknell Sound Shell Bicentennial Square on Symmons Street, and the other - a female face, is among a dozen other murals in ShoeBeDoo Lane (isn't this just a great name?), just off Stephen Street.

Signs - Love

We just celebrated Valentine's day on the 14th, and these signs would go well with he day.
The Love signs were part of a fundraising campaign for The National Heart Foundation. 
The first photos were taken in February 2014, in front of Glenelg beach in one of my visits to Adelaide (on the east coast) when Jose was working there.
For a $10 donation you would get a padlock with a heart shaped fob on which you could write a tribute or love note to your valentine or loved ones, which would then be attached to any of the 2mt high letters. Apparently the structure attracted more than 7000 couples and became a unique backdrop for wedding photo shoots.

The following year the Love letters came to the city centre of Perth where they were displayed from mid January to mid February in the Murray Street Mall, and the last two photos are from that event, where you can see the letters were already very much covered with love notes, while the ones in Adelaide were taken at the start of the campaign.

For other signs from around the world please check Tom's blog.
