Looking forward to your mural finds this week.

Thanks Sami 

In August I drove to the suburb of Bayswater, just north east of Perth's city centre to get a quote,and I came across a few murals on the main road - King William Street. 

Wrapping around the Bayswater Community Centre is a mural commissioned by the City, and painted by muralist Hurben (The Baysie Rollers project).  It portrays black swans, birds and emus, relating to the history of the area with connections to the river and local wildlife.









Around the corner on Olfe Street Hurben's mural continues with a few quirky characters painted on the walls of the Child Health Centre.

  4. These are all great. I especially love the swan with the flora and fauna growing from its feathers. Those quirky characters in the second mural are also great.

    1. Thanks Sharon. That swan is beautifully done, looks like a flower vase.

  5. Your mural photos (among other things) always illustrate the large number of bird species native to australia. So great! I’m always amused that the term “black swan” has been used to mean something impossible. I guess those show-off economists aren’t birders!
    Thanks for hosting … it’s so much fun to see what murals people discover on almost every continent.

    1. The black swans are the State birds of Perth, and the Swan river which divides the city was named after them. Thanks Mae

    1. Thanks Kwarkito. That last one is a bit strange, looks like an upside-down mouse to me.

  16. I really like the characters on the Child Health Centre, Sami.

  17. That is a perfect mural for a children's health center. It should make the children feel better.

  18. Dear Sami, another very pretty mural - I particularly like the black swan with the flowers on its back, and I also find the fairy-tale-like characters at the children's health center funny! :-)
    All the best and a happy new week, Traude
