Monday Mural - Roses and skulls

On one of my visits to Sydney last year, a took a bus to Bondi Beach. On the way there I alighted from the bus to take photos of this mural on the corner of Bondi Road and Boonara Avenue. Painted by Brisbaine born artist Steen Jones, who was originally a tattoo artist.

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.

  1. ...many mural artists are also tattoo artists, you can see this in his work. I'm not sure that I like the skull, but I like the dragon. Thanks Sami for hosting.

  3. This is super different. It does remind me of tattoos and tattoo artists. Of course, I simply adore the palm trees. Great find.

  5. Dearest Sami,
    Those 'roses' have weird, leathery leaves... must be a new variety!
    The skull resembles almost a burlap bag being tight together.
    Hugs,

  21. Bondi Beach is probably one of the locations most people associate with Australia, even if they don't know exactly where it is!

    1. Quite right David. Although I must say, we in Perth have better and less crowded beaches than Bondi. (Just don't tell the Sydneysiders, lol)
