Monday Mural - Masked faces

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.

Painted in 2016 by New Zealand artist Askew One, in the town of Bunbury (175km south of Perth) and can be found in the Wittenoom street car park in the city centre.
Not sure what the artist wanted to convey with this mural, with the 3 ladies seeming to have their mouths taped... they almost look as if they are wearing masks.

 

I'll be away this week on a short holiday to Darwin in the Northern Territory.
So excited to be able to fly again, albeit just a 3,30h flight...
I might take a while to visit you all as I'm not taking my laptop and will only be able to check your blogs with my mobile phone. 
But looking forward too all your wonderful murals this week. Thank you 😊

  1. My outdoor art today is three-dimensional, so not strictly a mural. But its art! I like your masked faces.

  2. Dearest Sami,
    Elliot O'Donnell https://www.tmdcrew.com/askew-one seems to be mixed up with Vans the Omega... https://australiayourway.com/street-art-in-bunbury/ for which is mentioned Vans the Omega (Joel Van Moore) who painted a portrait of Tasmanian musician Claire Ann Taylor.
    Can't help you out with this mystery.
    Hugs,
    Mariette

    1. He's certainly wrong Mariette. I didn't post the photo of the mural's signature, which is on bottom left but it's 100/ Askew one. Thanks

  3. It's a lovely mural, Sami. In a way, it looks like the marks either signifies cats or dogs. It's certainly bold!

  4. This is a mural that begs for an explanation. Have a great trip, Sami. It will be great to get away again.

  5. Blue masks seem so appropriate now. Did the artist have foresight.

  8. That was what I thought too -- that they were (behind glass and) wearing masks. Then I realized their noses weren't covered. So maybe it's not about covid. (or maybe its about not masking properly. :D)

    Have a lovely vacation, Sami.
    Thank you for hosting.

    1. Not about Covid for sure, as the mural was painted in 2016 😁. Thanks Dee

    1. Mas nada a ver com a pandemia ainda por aparecer em 2016 😁

  11. The artist may have a reason for the mural but didn't realized that it has to do with the pandemic and face mask. Enjoy your holiday.

  12. Ahead of time, maybe or... well, in many places women have to shut up still. I see it even here and now.

  13. Have fun in Darwin. It was our first stop in Australia long ago and it felt so humid when we left the plane. Had never been in such a warm country :)

  15. I thought masks too at first. Perhaps it signifies how men think they can dictate what women do.

  16. Interesting mural. I can't pick up the message either but I'm sure there is one.

  17. Your mural today is beautifully painted. It makes one wonder whether we should value more the artistry (excellent) or the message (mysterious).

  18. I just assumed masks at first. Have a good holiday!
