Street Art in Perth

Sharing is caring!

The Street art if Perth blew us away, on a recent visit we were delighted to find a city full of fantastic large scale murals. Today we present a collection of our favourite works across Perth for your viewing pleasure!  If you love street art, then you really should visit this city for a few days. 

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, Lemon Tree Girl is by Perth local Paul Deej is located down a laneway off Grosvenor Road in Mount Lawley, not far from the IGA Carpark.  The car park and laneway that runs from it are full of painting.

Paul Deej – Mount Lawley 2

Charlie is a massive Seinfeld fan so when we heard about this 35m 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 😉   

Deej’s work often features pop culture and this one is a classic. Commission by a local business it was created using spray paint only, no brushes! You can view the full length of the mural here

Location: Beaufort Street Carpark (behind the IGA)

Clare McFarlane & Paul Caporn – CBD

This work created by local WA artists called Pretty Patterns commemorates the fashion history of the nearby area.

  1. What a wonderful collection of bold and powerful street art. I had no idea that Perth was such a hotspot for it! I particularly liked the portrait by Vhils, I need to look him up and see where else he’s featured. Thanks for sharing these pictures!
