Four nights in London

London from the air

Wow, hi London. Flying over London gave me the same excited chills as seeing New York from above. Can you see the London bridge in the pic above? Ryan and I only had a few nights in London, which was sort of a blessing in disguise given that the Australian currency conversion meant we chewed through money faster than we were hoping! Luckily I had planned to be in London over the weekend, which meant we could explore all the famous markets and see how vibrant the city really is.

Public 2015

This way to street art PUBLIC 2015

My favourite time of year has come and gone.

A few weekends ago I wandered around Northbridge, Leederville and Fremantle enjoying the new artwork being created for Form’s PUBLIC2015 event, where artists from around the world come to Western Australia to leave their mark. It’s so nice to see some of Perth’s unattractive buildings and laneways be uplifted with artwork.

I love how Brett Chan’s pink mural brightens my day every time I look at it, Amok Island’s ‘Praying Mantis’ makes me feel teeny tiny and Andrew Hem’s makes me want to jump inside the art and hang with the deer.

I really hope that Public continues in 2016. It would be great to see a few artist paint in suburbs a little further out or left of field (ahem, maybe my neck of the woods). Read more about the Public2015 event here, and check out some of the artwork from 2014 here.

PUBLIC \ Urban Art in Perth

Some of the best known urban artists have been transforming blank walls all across Perth over the last week for PUBLIC, from locals like Stormie Mills and Anya Brock to international artists like ROA, Phlegm, Alexis Diaz, Hyuro and Pixel Pancho. I always feel that street art just pops up overnight without ever seeing the artist, so I was very excited that I was going to have the opportunity to watch the artists do their thing. Only a few weeks ago I was admiring Maya Hayuk’s mural at the Bowery Hotel in New York and thinking how great it was, and now we have one here!

Seeing as a lot of the pieces were works in progress, I’m looking forward for my next visit into the city to see how some of the masterpieces ended up. I would love to see this as an annual event… we do have a lot of blank walls after all.
