  1. These are some talented young artists. What appealed to me was the fact that this very public area had no graffiti, which means the children were obviously well respected. That was a great find in a very unlikely place.

    1. Thanks Elizabeth. Yes, I didn't expect to find murals in these out of the way small towns and as you say these walls were painted such a long time ago, it's amazing there's no graffiti.

  5. Great project, teaching children art and respect and a sense for community life.
    I like your new background (no snow, no? Still have to shake my head on that ALDI-ad!).

    1. Thanks Iris, it's great that kids get involved in painting these murals.
      No snow...lol, I can't believe Aldi would sell snow gear in Perth, but I'm sure stranger things have happened!

    2. Did they really have it on offer or was it just a marketing gag?

    3. I didn't go there, but I actually saw this on the news and lots of people in Aldi, so it must have happened.

  6. Sami if you look at it closely and then mine today, don't you think it could be by the same artist.. the figures look so alike! It's such a cheery sight, perfect for a seaside spot.

    1. Que pena Gi, e uma maneira das criancas se expressarem tambem. Tambem evita os grafitis, pelo menos aqui pensa-se assim.

  13. Talented children! I'm not sure I would have done as good... It's a good way to make a beach toilet look more fun.

  15. Murals by and for children always seem to be dipped in sweetness and happiness. Hooray for both. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
