Monday Mural - the giant

If you enjoyed last week's mural by Perth artist Kyle-Hughes Odgers, here's another one! 
This gigantic mural, 3 floors high was painted on building 405 at Curtin University, (visible from Hayman street).
The mural is part of the 40 odd murals painted at Curtin University in April this year as part of the Public Form 2016 initiative.

  1. lovely mural...I missed last week's one so I will have to go check that one out too! I like the way it looks like she is stepping onto the bus shelter!

  2. Is she holding a latern? Reminds me of the song "Laterne, Laterne, Sonne, Mond und Sterne" - did you go on Martinsumzug in Braunschweig back then?

  8. This is an incredibly impressive mural, and I would love to see the other 39. Since it was three stories high, it must have been very difficult to create it and still keep the perspective.

    1. I'll be posting a lot more murals painted at Curtin University. I admire the artists painting these huge works because it can't be easy. I'm sure there's a lot of planning ahead...

  9. Dearest Sami,
    Wow, love this one and the skinny legs look very special.
    Love also the fact that someone is seated there and you at least have comparison size wise!
    Hugs,

  10. Just amazing! I see an Asian influence. You've developed quite a collection here. I think they'd make a great little published book! Murals bring art outdoors - and right into the faces - of people who ordinarily wouldn't think of themselves as appreciators!

    1. I agree there must be an Asian influence as in all his murals the eyes are a bit slanted. I think people will probably more easily go and see murals around a city than go into an art gallery. Thanks J.

  13. Great use of the bus shelter and the humungous size is shown up by the person waiting for the bus, who is smaller than the giants head!
