Murals in Victoria Park III

A few more photos of murals taken in the suburb of Victoria Park.
You can see Part I and Part II by clicking on the links.





Painted on the side wall of a unique gift shop "The Good Store" at 363 Albany Highway, this beautiful mural got the thumbs up from the store owner. 
"Jumping the shark", painted by Fieldey and James Giddy, both Perth based artists, was painted for the 2015 Form.

Fieldey, a New Zealand born artist, moved to Perth in 2007, and started painting her own surfboards when she learned to surf. She also paints murals and other things under commission.


A small mural on a side alley painted by "The Yok" who has another mural in Victoria Park (in previous post).

Painted by Perth illustrator Chris Nixon, at 1 Harper Street. There was a similar one on a wall to the left painted in orange tones, but there was a car parked right in front of it which obscured the view.


The large wall above painted by Drew Straker, another Perth graffiti artist who uses the "neon glow technique" in his artworks. You can see that in the first photo with the fireworks, to the left of the jet plane. This one can be seen on the side wall of Domino's Pizza at 410 Albany Highway corner of Duncan street.


Hope you enjoyed these murals. For me the first one by Fieldey/Giddy is quite striking, but the last one by Straker "feels" more artistic. Which is your favourite?

  1. "Jumping the shark" is my favorite, too, but I also like the following two. The style of the last two again reminds me of Markthalle Braunschweig by style. And now I crave Pizza and Braunschweig has no Domino´s, buhuuuu! ;-)

    1. Domino's pizza is quite nice, although I hardly ever eat pizza.

  2. Australia's murals or street art can be so good, my favourite is the plane, you can practically feel those propellers whizzing round from here!

    1. I also thought the plane looked quite real, could be that "neon" painting style of the artist.
      Thanks for visiting Wren.

  3. Must admit I like Fieldey's work too Sami, and James Giddy is a favourite also.

  4. Great works again! I think the whale is my favourite.

    Regarding your comment: Lisbon is overcrowded with foreign tourists!
