Murals in Northbridge

The following photos were taken a few weeks ago on a day out in the suburb of Northbridge, just north of Perth's city centre.

This green wall in William street, behind TAFE (educational and training college) has 3 different murals.
The one in the centre, with the "quirky aliens" was painted by Perth artist Martin E Wills or MEW, the one on the right side is by New York artist Jerkface.

On the tower of the Tafe building you can see a huge piece by Argentinian artist Nicolas Romero known as Ever.


Another mural on the corner of Newcastle and William street, was painted  in 2012 by Lauren Nannup and Stephen Genovese, and is entitled "Red and White tail cockatoos"


These next ones were taken in a carpark in Abeerdeen Street, also in Northbridge, when we went out to dinner with friends to the Darlings Supper Club, a modern Asian fusion restaurant.
This mural was painted by Chris AKA Royaldog, a Korean artist.
(sorry not great pictures, but they were taken with my phone at night)

Have a wonderful weekend.
Here in Perth we're having a sunny weekend, which means some gardening. Will have to show some pictures of our progress in the garden renovation...

    1. I think I was with you and we went to take photos of that big one in the Tafe tower. I would never have discovered the Royaldog ones if we hadn't parked in that car park. They are great!

    1. Thanks Marianne, for the second year running there's been a lot of murals painted by artists from all over the world. This year it was done in April, but I still have to go and take photos of most of them!
