On Friday 12th, I met up with Grace to go and visit the 17th annual exhibition of Sculptures by the Sea in Cottesloe Beach. It's always a fun and very popular outdoor event, that took place from the 5th to the 22nd March. On the way to Cottesloe (northern beach suburb) I came across 3 murals, so on the way back I stopped to take photos, and then still found another one on a little detour into Fremantle. I'll show two now and the other two next week.
PS: Grace had already posted the Frida mural a while back, but it's a beautiful mural so here it goes again for those that hadn't seen it before.
The Frida Khalo mural was painted on the front wall of Plata Bonita, Mexican Jewellery and Homewares in Stirling Highway in North Fremantle by Perth artist Susan Respinger in August 2020.
In December 2020 the artist updated the mural by adding a mural of Archie, the shop's welcoming dog and a colourful Macaw by the entry door on the side of the building.

Frida is very well done and so are the dog and macaw over the door. The blooming cacti are incredible, too. SO well done. That's a great Dingo sign, too. It sure is eye catching and would be a great way for boaters as a marker. It's good that it is well kept up, too.ReplyDelete
Thanks Elizabeth. Apparently the Dingo flour sign is a good marker for boaters in Fremantle. Have a lovely weekDelete
Outstanding - Love That Curious Dog There - Beautiful Hummingbird - Excellent Shots There Sami - Well DoneReplyDelete
Thank you Padre :)Delete
...the Frida Khalo mural has a wonderful look to it, the eyes are wonderful. The Dingo mural looks brand new, I should get a regular "makeover" Too! Thank Sami for hosting, enjoy your week.ReplyDelete
Thanks Tom. I think we all need a makeover when we reach a certain age, lol.Delete
Frida I´ve seen like this only in your and Grace´s blogs but the Dingo I always see from Transperth when we pass by.ReplyDelete
Both are beautiful - and the hummingbird, wow.
I've seen the Dingo flour sign for years but never stopped to take a photo. Thanks IrisDelete
I remember frida khalo's mural. It's wonderful. The huge dingo is expressive too. II hope that you enjoyed "sculptures by the see". I wish you a good week.ReplyDelete
Thanks Arnaud. Yes, I loved Sculptures by the Sea, always interesting.Delete
A rather stern looking lady but beautiful colors and details.
Also the Dingo.
I don't think I've ever seen Frida smiling, she's always so stern in all her self-portraits. Thanks MarietteDelete
Loving the first one!ReplyDelete
Thanks Amy :)Delete
We have a Frida mural here that I should photograph some time.ReplyDelete
Would love to see it William, please post it on Monday Murals sometime :)Delete
Love that Frida mural 💕ReplyDelete
The addition of the dog was a good idea. I remember seeing the Dingo Flour sign from the train and I think I took a photo on the way home. Of course I had never heard of Dingo Flour.ReplyDelete
Thanks Andrew. I have never seen Dingo flour around in the shops either, but on researching I found out the mill is part of Allied Mills which produce different flours, etc.Delete
I love the Frida mural - and its recent additions.ReplyDelete
Thanks Debbie :)Delete
A vibrant tribute to Frieda Carlo!ReplyDelete
How did you enjoy the Sculptures by the Sea?
Thanks Ju-Lyn. I loved Sculpture by the Sea, always fun to see the different sculptures, some great, some wacky ...Delete
O mural da Frida é fabuloso.ReplyDelete
Obrigada Pedro, e muito bonito.Delete
Fantastic art murals. Great pics.ReplyDelete
Have a nice week ahead.
Thanks Rupam, enjoy your week too.Delete
Yes, that's Frida. And then there's that sweet dog. Who's sitting there, faithfully waitingReplyDelete
Thanks Bertie :)Delete
Good looking portrait of Frida. Like it. The brand Dingo hmmm.ReplyDelete
Thanks Stefan :) I've actually never seen "Dingo flour" here in Perth.Delete
The Frida mural is wonderful!ReplyDelete
Thanks Marianne :)Delete
Frida looks terrific as she always does. She was a force to be reckoned with in life and it is interesting that her influence carries on so long after she left us. I am sure she could never have imagined how lasting her impact would be.ReplyDelete
So right David, she would have been amazed :)Delete
I am a total Frida freak! Love her. Have cushions and other stuff around my house.ReplyDelete
Oh well, just the mural for you then Jackie :)Delete
That one with Frida Kahlo would fit in perfectly here in Arizona.ReplyDelete
Yes with the cacti and bright colours I'm sure it would look at home there. Thanks SharonDelete
Beware of the dog(s)! :-)ReplyDelete
I'm sure they are "both" quite tame Revrunner :)Delete
Frida looks great there but I have to admit that I love seeing Archie!ReplyDelete
Thanks Pat, Archie is beautiful for sure!Delete
Fabulous murals Sami, lovely post.ReplyDelete
Enjoy your week.
All the best Jan
Thank you Jan :)Delete
Great murals! I love Archie!ReplyDelete
Thanks Linda, he is a cutie :)Delete
What a coincidence indeed Sami :) Love this portrait of Frida, she is such a talented artist xxReplyDelete
Thanks Grace, she is very talented :)Delete
The dingo is fun but the Frida is spectacular -- that had to take a lot of time and it is so well done!ReplyDelete
It certainly a beautifully painted mural. Thanks Jeanie.Delete
