We love what’s happening on Freo’s walls at the moment. When you are down in South Freo, make sure you check out Anya Brock’s work on Ootong and Lincoln’s north wall. Zebras better than in the wild. Murals, keep on coming – maybe also to Freo’s ‘problem areas’?

Next time you’re heading over to Galati & Sons or Wild Poppy on Wray Avenue, check out the giant orange mural on Attfield Street before you go it’s bound to cheer you up.
In 2002, Horatio T birdbath and Joe Record collaborated on a mural wall at Gino’s. You know the one, it’s a bit of a landmark, can’t miss it. Every now and then it gets a touch up. Last Thursday I spotted Horatio doing a bit of work.
Jus Burger has been open for over a month now and you should stick your head in the door ’cause it’s rocking the best mural in the 6000s. The Greetings from Fremantle makes the place.
Jus Burger Fremantle is located at the old fish market corner at Fremantle Markets, South Terrace. Open 7 days: YEAY somewhere to eat on a Monday. Check out their new menu.
Update 5th July 2011: Walked by there last night to check out who did the mural and it was these guys.
I’ve been kind of obsessed with these dogs for a while. Don’t ask me why, all I know is that they are Awesome (with a capital A). Look at them all 2D, slightly wonky and amazing. It’s all slightly haphazard but it works for me.
You can see them in all their glory at the Horrie Long Reserve.
I saw this new mural by Reboot yesterday on the side of Aubergine on South Terrace and I popped by this morning to take a photo. While I was snapping away the owner came out and asked if I liked it and I said I did. He also said some people thought he was mad getting it painted on the side of his café but he loves it. He told me it’s a interpretation of the fable of how coffee was discovered…
An Ethiopian goatherd noticed when his goats ate the red berries from a particular bush they became all hyper and stated jumping around. He tried them himself and bingo the same effect. He brought his discovery to a holy man and he wasn’t having any of it and threw his berries in to the fire then a wonderful smell filled the room. They pulled the beans from the fire, ground them and put them in water and blah blah blah Starbucks etc.
He also said he had a giant frame planned for the same wall where people can write their own messages.
I came across this mural on Henry Street today. I love it and am wondering how long it’s been there. Most likely a piece from AC4CA – does anyone know who the artist is?
Love Freo has been out to investigate some concerning changes to a much loved South Freo institution, the launderette on the corner of South Terrace and Scott Street. Now this place is loved for its colourfully painted walls, its wacky people size cartoons and it’s many, many polite notices about how to exit after closing time (the automatic door shuts itself at 9.30pm).
It also had some subtle features which really set it apart, the nicest of which where little chrome halogen spotlights that lit the room, a machine that actually made decent coffee and a small but perfectly formed noticeboard that was well used by locals to advertise their wares.
Now it’s not just locals who have come to love this place. It’s a well known stop-off for travellers passing through Freo who need to wash their travel-weary clothes but like a half-decent place in which to do so.
