The first one, I saw when crossing the footbridge from the train station over the Mitchell Freeway, and it was unveiled in June this year.
Painted by Perth artist Kyle Hughes-Odgers, located in a building at 50 Oxford Close, and it's entitled " The Giants View" - a double play on the view you get from the footbridge and the painted people looking out.
I can't believe I had never seen it while driving past on the free way though, maybe because I'm concentrating and not looking sideways...
In this post I have a photo of another of his murals in the city of Perth.

While walking around the Christmas fair I came across this gigantic mural painted on the walls of the Luna Cinema building on the corner of Oxford and Vincent Street in Leederville.
It was already getting dark, so I didn't get a very good image, but the mural is magnificent!
Painted for the Christmas festival by Australian artist Fintan Magee, it shows three figures carrying heavy loads on their backs - depicting movement and displacement regarding Immigration in Perth's history.
From his site I see that he always paints giant murals.
Two weeks ago when I went to Angove Street in North Perth (suburb next to Leederville) to buy the homeopathic medication for my cat Baby at HAMPL, I also came across a couple of murals I hadn't seen.
And by the way, my "Baby" cat is doing so much better, eating by herself, etc, so the meds worked on her "supposedly lympathic cancer".
This next mural painted by another Perth artist George Domahidy - is on the corner of Angove and Daphne streets in North Perth.
The owner of the building, Hank Ekamper, shared the costs with the Council of Vincent. Finished in February 2014, the mural depicts the trams that used to run down this street in the olden days.
And to end this post, is the photo of a mural I saw at the Leederville Christmas Festival, at 140 Oxford street, painted by Graphite Crew on the walls of Unison clothing.
It looks like the Northern suburbs have a lot of interesting walls that we don't get in the Southern suburbs...
An interesting selection of murals and some very talented Perth artists too.
What do you think?
