Today we are sharing 10 of our favourite street art murals we found when we visited Perth recently.

On our visit to Perth earlier this year we spent a week just relaxing with friends, eating and checking out the brilliant (and abundant) street art in the city. Over three days I took at least 200 photos of the walls in Perth and Fremantle. For a city of its size, the number of outstanding walls is really impressive.

Guido Van Helton – North Perth

This one got me, you will find it on the side of a building at 282 Fitzgerald Street West Perth. Painted by Guido Van Helton who has the most incredible skill at bringing faces to life, this portrait is of Afghan Cameleer Said Kabool, who immigrated to Australia in 1916.  You can find out more about the background of the work here

Location: 282 Fitzgerald St, West Perth.

Paul Deej – Mount Lawley 1

This clever mural is located down a laneway off Grosvenor Road not far from the IGA Carpark.  The carpark and laneway that runs from it are full of paintings.

Paul Deej – Mount Lawley 2

Charlie is a massive Seinfeld fan so when we heard about this 35 mural that pays homage to the show and all its characters we had to find it.  I love that the artist has recreated some of the most familiar scenes. Kramer in his pimp coat and George is his puffer jacket seemed like the best spot to snap a photo of Charles who is partial to a fashionable jacket himself 😉
