NORTHBRIDGE STREET ART
Some of the world’s best urban artists were recently invited to Perth to give
the city’s laneways, buildings and car parks a spruce up. Lucky Northbridge
scored the lion’s share – here are our five faves. compiled by Susannah Christensen
The Yok and Sheryo (Perth and Singapore)
TURNER GALLERIES CAR PARK | The Yok collaborates with Sheryo to create one of two urban artworks at the
Turner Galleries car park, complementing their Nasty Goreng exhibition inside. The artists have spread their
talent all over the world, and now bring their red-and-yellow-hued, ‘imperfect gnarly characters’ to Northbridge.
TURNER GALLERIES CAR PARK | The Turner
Galleries car park on William Street is now home
to two larger-than-life murals: along with Perth
and Singaporean artists The Yok and Sheryo,
Argentinian muralist Jaz brings a safari-esque vibe
to Northbridge using an unconventional technique
of combining petrol and asphaltic paint to create an
intricate scene on a huge scale.
Pixel Pancho (Italy)
CENTRAL TAFE | To get your mind racing, head to Central
TAFE on Aberdeen Street to see poster-artist and muralist
Pixel Pancho’s enormous artwork, spanning a wall high
enough that he needed a crane to paint it! The depiction
of the colourful boy-robot is archetypal of the Italian artist,
who encourages his viewers to contemplate human nature
as a form of machinery.
CENTRAL TAFE | The formerly dull, rounded wall of Central
TAFE has finally gotten the boost it so direly needed.
Argentinian graffiti artist Ever paints a traditional-looking
South American woman on a huge scale. The abstract piece,
which shows the woman dressed in a brightly coloured wrap
with flowers in her hair, cupping a young boy’s face upside
down, lends spirit and vibrancy to this area of Northbridge.
WASHING LANE | Italian street artist Japoco
Ceccarelli, who goes by the alias 2501, brings his
eclectic flair to Australia with a piece typical of his
style – one that’s almost an optical illusion. The
black-and-white mural can be found on Washing
Lane in the heart of Northbridge and is illuminated
by blue lights at night.
