Public Form 2016 means a new batch of exciting murals were painted around Perth from the 4th till the 10th of April.The artists started by painting murals in the suburb of Claremont, then at Curtin University and this week the artists go on to Albany in the South West to paint more murals there too.
Since I drive past Curtin University on my way to and from work, it was exciting to be able to accompany the progress of the 16 murals being painted across the campus.
And because I'm Portuguese, the first mural from this year's Form, is the one painted by Portuguese muralist "Add Fuel" aka Diogo Machado, based on the traditional blue and white Portuguese tiles.
I love blues, I love the Portuguese tile work, and the mural is really different and beautiful.
Just check the progress from beginning to end.

We managed to catch Diogo after he finished his work, had a chat with him and of course took a photo with this wonderful young artist.
I wish him the best of luck with his work and hope you too like this "taste of Portugal" that I brought you today.

PS -"Add Fuel's" blue and white tile design was also imprinted on the Public2016 pamphlet maps and other banners as this one at the university campus, so quite an honour I would think!
