Monday Mural - travelling bus

Another mural I saw while holidaying with my family in the South of Western Australia during December.
This lively mural of a VW bus carrying surfboards was painted on the wall of the Surf shop in the lovely town of Denmark
Painted by a group of young artists that belong to "Tha House" youth group in Denmark.

  1. How neat, I see VWs with surf boards over here on Maui. Back home in New York State we have a Denmark too.

    1. Thanks Tom. You probably see the real VW's no? Denmark seems to be a popular name then!

  3. Funny - I have that motive over my PC! Without the peace-sign, the bus is blue and only one surfboard, but, yep, I see that every day! I like this color better, though :-)

    2. Yes, I remember you told me of travelling Europe in it :-)
      Yes, I used to have my office in the plant for years even, now see the plant from my workplace. Not fun these days, VW really made some huge mistakes. Hope I keep my job there, after all I´m external...

  4. Dearest Sami,
    You at least did let your Parents leave home with lots of images on their retina and otherwise. Fond memories of so many different things!
    Hugs,

    1. Thanks Mariette. My Dad who is a keen photographer was thrilled with all the new and different things he could photograph - he took an average of 300 photos a day!!

  6. This is delightful! - all the way down to the little sea creatures crawling along the shore. The mural describes youthful carefree fun. I'm sure those artists are very, very proud of their work!

  7. It's good to see the country towns are getting a bit of colour also Sami. I believe Bunbury has some fabulous street art.

    1. Yes, it's great for the small country towns to also get some colour! I had intentions to stop in Bunbury too, but we were all tired of travelling and wanted to make it home still during daylight, so gave Bunbury a miss.

    1. Thanks ODP. I hadn't heard of Peter Max but have checked him out and he uses the same type of colours and happy pictures.
