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

Another mural in Subiaco, at the Santa Fe Restaurant, at 315 Hay Street.

Painted by Australian street artist Fieldey and New Zealand artist Erika Pearce, who combined styles to turn a boring wall in a busy street into a psychedelic Mexican fiesta.

It features the Mexican painter Frida Kahlo, holding a sacred heart with a vessel flowing down the wall to join a smaller heart held by a spider monkey.

Frida used to keep spider monkeys as pets, and they feature in a lot of her self portraits.

You can watch a 4 min. Youtube video about the painting of this mural.

  2. I can't get Linky links to work, Sami. I get an error message that there isn't enough disk space. If anyone knows how to work around this, please let me know. I tried from the web, from my computer and a generic image. All gave me the same error message.

    Here is my link:

  3. The Frida images are just wonderful! I also had trouble with the linky tool, and settled for a "generic" image.

  4. That is a really, really good example of Frida. She was such an icon and the mural is stunning, right down to the praying individual between her and her spider monkey. And of course, the hearts. Always the hearts. And the flowers in her hair. Simply wonderful.

  16. I am sure that Frida Kahlo could never have imagined that she would be featured on murals in Australia, but she has become a bit if a cult figure in many respects, like Che Guevara but for entirely different reasons of course. This is a very ambitious work, Sami. You have presented us with many, many murals, and I think it is time to do your own. i think a vineyard and a Portuguese fish market on the side of your house would do just fine. I will look forward to it!

    1. Thanks David, I agree that Frida could not have ever imagined she would be so popular all over the world.
      I live in a brick house, so no murals :) but I have lots of walls full of my own paintings, and that's enough colour and art.

    2. One day you will have to show us your paintings. I am sure we would all enjoy seeing them, and then we could brag about our famous artist friend in Western Australia!

    3. I will one for sure David. Unfortunately very few artists became famous or make money :)
