Monday Mural - Paint Subi 1

If you like murals or have a mural you'd like to post, this meme is for you; 

just follow the Linky steps below.  Once you start looking you find murals everywhere.  
Be sure to link back to this blog and visit your fellow posters.  Looking forward to your mural finds posted this week.   Monday mural meme is posted at 12,01am Monday, Western Australian time. Thanks, Sami. 

Again, while going through old photo murals I found murals I had photographed in November 2017 in Subiaco, an inner city suburb, and never posted.   

I had mentioned the Paint Subi project that was held on the 11th and 12th of November 2017, in my post about Open House Perth 2017, but never posted the individual murals.

On Saturday 11th November I had joined the Mural Walk, and most of the local and international artists were still busy painting their murals for the week long "Paint Subi" project supported by Form WA.

The first mural we visited was at 15 Railway Road, and was painted by Sioux Tempest, a Perth artist who has painted a few murals around our city.

The next mural was on nearby Rokeby Road, painted by Dominican born American artist Evoca, on the walls of the Australian Post building. Boy on the red bike,  shows a young postal worker on a bike delivering parcels alongside a black swan - the official state symbol of Western Australia.

    

Next week I'll show a few other murals from Paint for Subi.

  3. I like the graphics of the first one, but I'm sure you KNOW how much I love black swans. I've never seen one in flight before, so that was a real treat. I like how the artist used the arch to separate the swan from the biker. It's a wonderful mural, dear. And as always, thanks for hosting, too.

  4. I love the way the boy is partly behind the arches and partly in front of them -- clever use of space!

  6. Very surreal but cool, at first I thought the boy was riding the bird.

    1. Thanks Joanne. Sometimes the artist signs his work, but not always...

  11. That's a great bright abstract, but it's Boy on red bike that wins for me. So well done beneath the arches, with the swan popping out to go round a pillar.

  12. Love that one of the boy on the red bike. The swan really choose to come out of the mural. Very clever.

  15. You know, I am rarely in cities but when I am I have looked fir murals, but either I am looking jn the wrong places or we really do have less than you do in Western Australian, because I don't find them here. I will keep looking!

    1. I bet your eyes are more trained to look for birds than murals, lol.
      We do have a lot of murals in Australia over all. Even now during Covid they were being painted, although in smaller numbers than before. Thanks David

  22. Siento las molestias que te he ocasionado, pero intenté mandarlo rellenando el modelo y no lo pude hacer.

    Cuando vi tu entrada, me acordé, de una antigua publicación que hice de unos Murales en la ciudad de Málaga.

    Muchas gracias

  23. The first one is very colourful, but I have to say it's the second one that is my favourite.
    Many thanks for sharing them both.

    Hope your week is going well, they seem to go by so quickly.

    All the best Jan
