Monday Mural - Native birds and flowers VII

Through my local City of Canning council I receive regular emails with updates about what is happening in the neighbourhood. A couple of weeks ago I read about a mural just painted on a wall in a new park under development in Wharf street, Cannington, by two talented Perth artists, Brenton See and J.D. Penangke who blended their talents in an artistic collaboration.

The park - Next Generation Community Park - was meant to have been finished in the current month of June, but due to Covid it's far from finished, but the mural has been painted on the wall of an existing business building adjoining the park. 


Because of fencing around the construction site I could only photograph the mural sideways through the metal fence.  Will have to keep an eye out for when it's finished so I can take better photos.

The project is turning an inaccessible storm water basin into a smart park with interactive water education stations, a habitat for wildlife, boardwalks, a pedestrian bridge to access a street on the other side, free WiFi, smart benches to charge devices...

By coincidence the mural that I posted last week is in another park in the same street! Both murals are a couple of blocks from the Carousel shopping centre.

Signs - Valley of the Giants

These signs are from the Valley of the Giants in Walpole, about 400km (248 miles) South West of Perth.
The Valley of the Giants is an iconic region on the south coast of Western Australia between Denmark and Walpole. The area is world famous for the 600mt long (1968ft) Tree Top Walk suspended 40 metres (131ft) high in the canopy of the ancient tingle forest.
The Tree Top Walk is within the Walpole-Nornalup National Park, is the only area in Australia where these giant eucalyptus can be found. They can grow to a height of 75 mt (246 ft), and some of them are over 400 years old.
Photos are from a couple of years ago, when my parents came to visit and others from when my middle sister and brother in law came to visit us in Australia.
For other signs from around the world please check Tom's blog.

Monday Mural - Holding hands

Another mural from the archives, from our visit to the Philippines in December 2018.
This mural in the Bonifacio Global City (BGC), was painted by Biskeg Pangasinan Artist Collective headed by artist Patrick Fernandez, and was painted for the ArtBCG 2017.

Entitled "Kapit Kamay", which Google Translate, says it means "holding hands" when translated from Tagalog. 

Maybe Stevenson from Cavite Daily might be of help with the translation.
The mural can be found at the Uniqlo C3 annex building on 30th Street, BGC.

Signs - I am 50

Well, I'm past 50, but what about this classic MG from 1950? Don't you just love this curvy beautiful renovated red model?
Yesterday as I looked out the clinic's window I saw one of our patients alighting from this beauty and had to go out and take a photo.
It's a great number plate too :)

Monday Mural - At Carousel Shopping Centre

The Carousel Shopping Centre went through a huge expansion and renovation project, and when the new areas reopened at the end of 2018,  some of the previous plain cement exterior walls were now covered with bright murals.
When I used a different entrance into the shopping the last time I visited at the beginning of March this year, I noticed a couple of murals I hadn't yet seen.

The first one was painted by Hiroyasu Tsuri - aka Twoone, a Japanese born artist who now lives in Melbourne.

The last one is on the exterior wall of the Canton Bay Dim Sum restaurant - is by Perth artist Daek Williams (thanks to Grace, for the discovery).
