Monday Mural - The Beast

Grace alerted me to a facebook publication that a mural was being painted at the Stockland Bull Creek Shopping Centre, just 10 min down the road from me.

When I visited on Sunday 20th, the artist, Kerise Delcoure, was still at work on the 50 meter wall (164ft) she nicknamed "The beast", which she's been painting during the last 2 weeks of school holidays.
I spoke to her briefly, and she mentioned she was a teacher (Visual arts I presume) and she had been painting the mural with the help of volunteers. 
Only half the mural is being painted now and the other half will be done during the December school holidays, so I'll have to remember to go back and take photos of the finished mural.
Her compositions are nature based with emphasis on Western Australian native animals and plants.

If you like murals or have a mural you'd like to post, this meme is for you;
just follow the Linky steps below.   Be sure to link back to this blog and visit your fellow posters.  Looking forward to your mural finds this week.  

Monday Mural Meme goes lives at 12,01am Perth, Western Australian time.


Thanks, Sami.

  3. What an amazing artist. I love the beach colors she chose for these creatures. Not sure I would call it a beast, except it must have been a beast to cover so much wall. Lovely find and great that you caught the artist at work, too.

    1. I agree with you on the name Elizabeth, but I assume it's just the sheer size of it.

    Glad you got to go in time to meet with her in person and to see her work in the making.
    That is quite an educational project too. Don't forget to get back in December!

  20. It must be difficult to calculate how much paint would be required to cover a surface that size.

    1. I have no idea how they even draw in such a huge scale and how they calculate how much paint they will need. Thanks Revrunner.

  21. Gosh they are so lovely Sami, glad you got a chance to chat to the artist. I didn't realise Willy Wagtails were so vicious, they look so small and cute.. you can see why I fled now hey 😊

    1. Thanks Grace. The wagtails are very protective, I suppose all animals are, and some get more aggressive than others. I felt sorry for my cats when I saw the sores on the top of their heads, but they learned not to mess with them :)
