WALL INC, PERTH

Wall Inc is a City of Perth initiative to commission professional practising artists, inviting them to translate their work from a Studio/Gallery setting to a public open-air space, connecting with urban spaces and its community. Wall Inc is underpinned by three objectives; to enhance the attractiveness of the city; to decrease the incidence of localised graffiti in the city and to bring a broader aesthetic approach and visual diversity into the streets.

Wall Inc is a series of mural commissions without a theme. Artists are invited to respond to a selected, to the physicality of the walls, the building use and surrounds. Many walls have permanent visual distractions such as uneven surfaces, air conditioners, pipes, and blocked- in windows. Artists are required to embrace the conditions and work with them, not against them.

This is Clare McFarlane's "A Fragmented Tale" 2011, found in the  Hay Street Mall Laneway between Flight Centre/Sussan and London Court.

  2. Oh, I like this very much. The colors, textures, and incongruent images make for an appealing composition. Thanks, Nick, for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
