This is the first time this type of street art festival is held in Perth, and it included talks, music shows and food tents.
Building walls up to 10 storey high and some laneways in the CBD and in Northbridge were enlivened with "graffiti art" done by more than 40 national and international street artists like the renowned ROA (Belgium), Phlegm(UK), Stormie Mills (Australia), Gaia (USA), Pixel Pancho (Italy), Jaz (Argentina), Kyle Hughes-Odgers (Australia), Vans the Omega (Australia), etc.
These murals will hopefully last for a while making our city more vibrant and energetic!
As I came up the escalators of the Perth Underground Station onto Murray Street I was greeted by a male chorus - Vocal Evolution. I stayed for a while listening to their melodic songs. Wonderful stuff, makes you feel good!
Around the corner in Forrest Chase Square a Butcher's competition was being held, with free meat tasting (cooked, not raw).
|Meat tastings to vote for Best Butcher and donations to "Lifeline"|
|Superman made an appearance at this stall, not very visible but behind him there was a "green lady"|
Well, it was time to walk around and see the Street Art!
Around the corner from the Underground train Station in William Street, I spotted the first artworks in Globe Lane, that links to Forrest Chase behind the station.
|Globe Lane - 10 x 10mt work by Kyle Hughes-Odgers in 140 William st building|
|Globe Lane - Phibbs - painted in Oct 2013 in 140 William St building.|

|Some of the artworks at the end of Wolf Lane|
This "Wolf" on the corner of Wolf Lane Bar, was actually painted by Perth artist Hurben in July 2012.
In the next post there will be more photos from this street art exhibition.
I have read that street art, although a form of "graffiti" actually protects the walls from vandalism from "ugly graffiti".
Hope you had a wonderful Sunday! Once again we had a beautiful day with a high of 33C, a wonderful Autumn day! The forecast for the rest of the week is in the high 20's, reaching 31C again next Friday.
