Whatley Crescent, Bayswater
This incredible mural is a fantastic collaboration between the City of Bayswater, Baysie Rollers, Laneway Art Space and Graeme Miles Richards. Located in a humble little lane off Whatley Crescent next to the Australian Post in the suburb of Bayswater, this eye-catching mural is one of our top Insta-worthy spots in Perth for a colourful photo!
South Terrace, South Fremantle (East West Design)
This photo is just one tiny section of the incredible 140m fresco on the exterior of East West Design in South Freo (front and back). Painted by local legend Graeme Miles Richards, the mural features cultural designs that reflect different countries where the store’s products have been sourced, as well as local scenes like Rottnest Island. It’s an impressive masterpiece that makes a great photoshoot location – make sure to check out all the details up close!
Forest Square Carpark, Subiaco
Located on the side of a Subiaco apartment block, this stunning mural was painted by Spanish artist Okuda San Miguel aka OKUDART. Split into two works entitled ‘Kid Koala Playing God’ and ‘Kingaroo’, these artworks’ pop surrealism style and splash of colour bring vibrancy to the area.
Oxford Street, Leederville
Almost everywhere you look in Leederville you’ll find street art. One of the standouts is the Pink Haired Girl painted by Sarah McCloskey on the car park side of Bunn Mee (112 Oxford Street, Leederville). This mural’s bright blue background with the dreamy girl’s pink hair makes it one of the most colourful spots for a photo backdrop.
Guildford Road, Maylands
Not so much a mural, but still a gorgeous Insta-worthy spot for a photo with your love, the Salvos Store in Maylands on Guildford Road is super cute all painted red and covered in hearts. Pull into the car park out of shop hours and you’ll have this place all to yourself.
South Terrace, South Fremantle (Anya Brock)
We love this colourful mural by Anya Brock Artist, painted in 2014 and located on the side of a cafe on South Terrace in South Fremantle. The Zebras have become a popular photo spot whilst enjoying a coffee or snack at Ootong & Lincoln which oozes laid-back, retro charm and an eclectic menu boasting some of Perth’s best brunch fare. This mural has led to Anya being commissioned to paint some 60 big murals in public places all around Perth, Sydney, Melbourne and even LA.
