Monday Mural - Spice Alley

I saw these murals the day I visited Cockatoo Island and later my friend and I walked to the inner Sydney area of Chippendale, near Sydney's Central Station, where we visited the "green" building - One Central Park and the Asian restaurants in Kensington Street, known as Spice Alley.

I didn't find names of the artists, but there's a big variety, some of them inside the restaurants, others in the courtyard, all with an Asian flavour. 壁画
If you like murals or have a mural you'd like to post, this meme is for you;

Thanks, Sami.

  20. Brilliant, and what is not to love about well designed colourful street art!

  21. A Arte também mora nas ruas e muitas vezes criada por artistas anónimos, que nos deixam a sua mensagem em belos murais como são estes que aqui nos oferece. Embora goste de quase todos, tenho um carinho especial pelo "mural japonês":-)
    Uma boa semana!
