Murals - Sea Horse

This West Australian Seahorse or "Hippocampus Subelongatus" was painted during Public Form 2014 by Dutch born, Fremantle resident Amok Island on the facade of a six stories high building.

This building at 100 Hampton Road in Fremantle is used as a 190 bed lodge offering entry-level accommodation to disadvantage people.
Some companies and individuals, apart from Form have rallied to give the residents skills such as cooking, preserving, repairing bicycles, etc. to make the residents feel integrated into the community and allow them to earn money by participating in stall sales, etc.

  2. Such a huge one, must be difficult to paint a whole building, but the result is amazing.

  4. I sure would prefer this to our boring grey facade!
    Beautiful, esp the color gradient of the background.

    1. Thanks Iris, maybe you can hire him to paint a mural on your grey walls.
      I find that there's so many murals being painted in Perth, it's really given a city a new life, a lot of visitors come to take photos, etc.

  10. Dearest Sami,
    It is so impressive for making such a very nice mural over such an enormous height!
    Also the initiative for supporting those disadvantaged people I appreciate.
    Sending you hugs,

  11. I have been meaning to visit for DAYS, but my computer time was interrupted by gardening. I can't believe it's been so long since I was here. However, I know why. It's because you are not on my sidebar, so I never know when you update your blog. So, if you will permit me to add your blog to my left sidebar (I only do this with permission), I will be around far more often.

  12. Gostei muito deste mural e achei-o muito bem enquadrado, com o verde das árvores. E o edifício ficou muito mais bonito. Gosto muito de motivos marinhos.
