Australian Art: Fremantle Street Art
Numbat wall mural (2012) at the car-park leading to the True Blue Market & Old Shanghai Market.
Fremantle in Western Australia - August 2019
On a multi-mode cycling tour of Perth and it's vincity (meaning we drove, cycled and took trains) we had the chance to do a bit of cycling in Fremantle. We had heard that the city does have a fair bit of attractive street art and dropped by the Fremantle Visitors Centre to see whether they have a map showing locations of these artwork. Unfortunately they don't, but the counter lady this circle some spots for us to go see. So off we went, and on our bicycles it was a task made easier, faster than walking but still slow enough not to miss things. We followed the map, but found most of the artwork through our own exploration and interaction with the locals. At the bottom of this blog is a Freemantle Street Art Google Map showing the locations of the street art, and I do hope it will be helpful for those seeking these street art. Fremantle also hold the annual Fremantle Street Arts FestivalBelow are many of the paintings we saw, click on the respective photo for a better enlarged view. Due to photography angle, and for presentation purposes, many of photos have been cropped and edited to compensate for low lighting. It is better to go there and see these artworks for yourself. Enjoy!
