Monday Mural - The beast II

Mural on the back walls of the Bull Creek Shopping Centre, painted by Kerise Delcoure, and a team of helpers - @traceymoralee, @kknpp11 and @10shakes and others who chipped in to help.

I had first posted part of this mural in October 2019, before the mural was finished (in January 2020), but then totally forgot to go past it again to see the end result, and it's only a 10 minute drive from me.

This mural covers 250 square metres and depicts Australian birds and plants on a background of geometric shapes and bright colours. It was a very long mural and difficult to get it all in...

I love murals and street art. 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 will find murals everywhere.  The "Monday Mural" meme goes live on Monday at 12,01AM, Perth,Western Australian time. Be sure to link back to this blog and visit your fellow posters. Looking forward to your mural finds this week.  Thanks, Sami.

  3. It is a good use of space. I love that it is both realistic and geometric. What impressed (and surprised) me was you have the same mall stores as we have in the states.

    1. Yes we have Target here too but it's owned by Wesfarmers, so not sure if they have something to do with the American one. Target is popular here for clothing and home decoration. Thanks Elizabeth

    1. Thanks Iris. Sorry I couldn't help, never seen your mural, I wonder if it's in one of shoppings in the Northern suburbs.

  16. Restrained colors a little unusual for a mural but no less valuable. It's not such an assault on your retina. Nicely done.

  17. Fabulous murals! That Sulphur-crested Cockatoo would drag me right into the store! Australia really does a great job in featuring its wildlife in its murals. I think it's time for you to develop mural painting skills, Sami, and then we can have a whole portfolio of your work! It will be called "Australia with a Portuguese touch." The coffee table book will be a best seller!

  18. Any mural that has birds in it is fine by me. When it's full of colorful Australian birds, even better.
