After a decade of councils in WA strategic commissions of local artists for public art to be displayed for creative impact on our community. WA is becoming a leader in the country for art in open space, an art gallery on the streets converting blank boring walls, old buildings & new facades into amazing visuals that have become landmarks. Using public space with artistic images, ideas, at touch of the unusual is slowly branding the state as a creative culture. With more art works produced every year it has become an interesting opportunity for tours around the town to view locations & search for street art. So take the time to walk around to discover some really colorful murals, local street art.
