Get out and explore Perth’s street art scene this November with Streets of Perth’s top murals.
Temporary artwork by: Felice Varini (2017) Location: Fremantle High Street.
If you’ve visited Fremantle this month, you may have noticed some random splashes of yellow along the high street – which when combined from the right angle, come together to create this amazing optical illusion! Entitled Arcs d’Éllipses, this artwork was created for the Fremantle Festival by acclaimed Swiss street artist Felice Varini. It spans 800 meters through Freo town centre and you’ll be happy to know that it’s not actually painted but rather painted strips of temporary adhesive foil, which will leave the buildings unmarked once the installation ends on December 30. To see this artwork from the correct angle, head to the Roundhouse and climb the steps to the halfway point.
Previously known as Devilles Pad, Badlands Bar has had a makeover and a half – including this stellar mural by local legends Jackson Harvey and ArtByDestroy. Painted back in March, the wall measures a whopping 30x6m and took over 110 hours to complete!
Mural by: ROA (2017) Location:
It’s no secret that we’re massive fans of mysterious Belgian muralist, ROA, and his latest work in Perth is as stunning as ever. To check out this beautiful Brushtail Possum in person, head to the new property development ‘The Bottleyard’.
Mural by: Rahalie McGuirk (2016) Location: Perth Cat Hospital, 52 Oxford Close, West Leederville.
This big dose of cuteness was painted by local artist Rahalie McGuirk, AKA The Velveteen Rabbit Art.
Mural by: Fieldey (2015) Location: 252 Albany Highway, Victoria Park.
You’ll find this fun mural on the side of Brandos Pizzeria in Vic Park. They gave Fieldey full creative license for this mural, so the finished wall features a four-armed Marlon Brando receiving pizza from Saint Calamari (one of Fieldey’s trademark characters).
Mural by: George Domahidy Location: 2/447 Cambridge St, Floreat.
We love this colourful mural by local artist George Domahidy. You’ll find it on the side of the Chix Shed in Floreat.
Mural by: Prezjuan Location: 639 Beaufort St, Mt Lawley.
We discovered this striking Viking on the side of Caboose bar recently. It was painted by local artist Paulie Juan and there’s more awesome artwork inside the venue too.
Mural by: Phibs (2014) Location: 140 Perth.
We love the colours and design of this amazing piece by Sydney artist Tim De Haan, AKA Phibs. You’ll find it inside the 140 Perth complex in Perth CBD.
Mural by: Stormie Mills (2013) Location: Corner of Orrong Road and Kew St, Welshpool.
Created by local art legend Stormie Mills, the aptly named “I Heard it Through the Clothesline” can be found on the exterior of Dependable Laundry Solutions.
Mural by: Art Fresco (2015) Location: 816 Beaufort St, Inglewood.
How’s this for a magnificent mural? Painted by local artist Graeme Miles Richards from Art Fresco Design, you’ll find it in the car park of Your Pets Vet in Inglewood. We spoke to Graeme recently and asked him about the background to this piece. He told us, “I’d been painting the building as part of an ongoing project and once I’d finished, Scott the vet asked me to do the car park wall too. He suggested a blue whale and I thought ‘great!’. I also put my niece Monique in there with a turtle.”
