Day 32 Street art

Between the local community centre and suburban shopping centre there is a large brick wall that has been adorned with some great artwork. Unfortunately some of it has been tagged but it still looks great. This is just a small example of it. Two of them are of a cafe scene (you can see one in my photos) and these are located on the back wall of a cafe. One is of Edna Walling (the pink & yellow lady with the camera) and under these pictures of Edna (there are 4 of them) there are 2 plaques made up of local art work about Edna and her work. Then there is a "Writing on the wall" series which is 3 framed areas that consist of information and artwork depicting local history. There is some traditional graffiti/street art on another wall as seen in my photo showing the boy climbing the wall. There is also are large painted map depicting the area without housing and showing where local wildflowers can be found. You can check out my Flickr page to see more including some mosaics artwork at the community centre. Click on the Flickr badge under my profile.


  1. Is that Beethoven in the car with a cigarette in his mouth?

  2. No I actually think it might be Bob although sitting at a piano is not something he is known for.
