Old Perth Road gets a fresh lick of paint!
The Town of Bassendean is striving to create a vibrant Town Centre hub and sees street art as the perfect tool to do so and recently co-ordinated a three new murals on Old Perth Road.
These three new artworks at the Bassendean Oriental Restaurant breath new life in to what was once a dull and lifeless wall.
The Town’s objectives for the street art program include:
To enliven and enhance the streetscape;
To introduce well known street artists into the Town;
To promote the enjoyment of mural and street art by the community; and
To foster a sense of place within the town centre.
The Town worked with the Laneway Collective to seek artists and designs and a selection panel comprising representatives from the Town and the community chose the designs.
The artists Mel McVee (Melski), Rob Jenkins (The Black Mountains), and Lawry Halden (Too Much Colour) are highly experienced and well known for their artworks located in many nearby hubs including Mt Lawley and Leederville.
The community has totally embraced the new artworks and we have received many positive comments:
“Love it … such a great effort by all, thanks for making Bassendean better” Julie
“My home suburb just gets better and better when things like this brighten and liven it up” Peter
“Looks fantastic, well done” Marnie
“Love it!” Lisa
“Looks great” Rebecca
The Town wishes to thank everyone involved in this project and we look forward to working with artists, business owners, and the community as we implement further projects as part of the street art program.
