Monday mural meme is posted at 12,01am Monday, Western Australian time. Thanks, Sami. 

Continuing my Mural walking tour during Open House Perth 2017 -  on Saturday, the 11th November 2017, our next stop was in front of a huge and very colourful mural being painted by Spanish artist Okuda San Miguel.

Covering two four-storey walls of an apartment building backing Forrest Square car park (Dennis Street, Subiaco) the vibrant mural represents native Australian flora and fauna using a lot of geometric shapes. This was apparently quite a small project for the artist, as his murals are usually painted on buildings 10 to 20 floors high.

I got to chat to the artist and another artist friend of his, in Portuñol/Portunhol 🤣(mix of Spanish and Portuguese), and they told me they would paint from 7am to lunchtime, then go and have lunch at one of Perth's beaches and return to work from around 4 to 7pm, to beat the heat and to enjoy our fabulous beaches too.  

They loved what they had seen of Perth, the city, the people, the beaches... and told me I was so lucky to live here. Which of course I am!

  6. Dearest Sami,
    It is huge and wild with all its colors... Good for a children's movie but for putting it out on a department building I'm not so sure this looks 'natural'...
    Hugs,

    1. Thanks Mariette. This was a Council initiative in Subiaco (one of Perth's inner suburbs) where the artists are given certain walls to paint, this is all in conjunction with the owners of the buildings too who have to give their permission for the artists to paint.
