THIS IS ARTY FREMANTLE

It is only a few more weeks until the local government election campaign starts and where negativity about Fremantle Council will be severe and sometimes unfair, so I am trying to make the best of waking up from my winter hibernation with long walks through our delightful city.

Today I did a little photo essay on art and murals.

A nice new art mural has been created in the Fremantle Westgate Mall behind Target, and there are several others. Go and have a look at the modern graffiti artworks.

WESTGATE GRAFFITI ART MALL

Posted in art, city of fremantle, development, graffiti, Uncategorized by freoview on March 25, 2019

 

art 8

 

There has been an arty graffiti blitz on Fremantle’s Westgate Mall, after Many 2.0 closed its doors o make way for the Little Lane residential and retail development.

Some of the mural art is quite good and cute while other bits left me rather indifferent, but that is simply personal taste.

LOVELY ART MURAL IS NOT UNSIGHTLY!

There are some miserable people in this world, even in a city like Fremantle that has very many creative residents and artists.

Look at this lovely mural on the corner of Brennan and Stevens streets and ask yourselves if you consider this to be an unsightly artwork, because that is what one local resident, through their lawyers, have complained about to the City of Fremantle.

The mural, depicting native birds, is about 19 metres long and 2.8 metres high, and is a stone’s throw away from Fremantle Primary School. I have no doubts that many of the young students there love this gorgeous mural.

But now the Finance, Policy and Legislation Committee of Fremantle Council will need to make a ruling about it on Wednesday, because the Graffiti Act does not define the word unsightly.

unsightly
ʌnˈsʌɪtli/
adjective
  1. unpleasant to look at; ugly.
    “an unsightly rubbish tip”
    synonyms: ugly, unattractive, unprepossessing, unlovely, ill-favoured, disagreeable, displeasing, awful-looking, frightful-looking, hideous, horrible, repulsive, revolting, repellent, disgusting, offensive, grotesque, monstrous, gruesome, ghastly;

MINDLESS VANDALISM OF HERITAGE BUILDING

Posted in city of fremantle, graffiti, heritage, Uncategorized by freoview on September 10, 2018

 

morons

 

What a shame that the moron who sprayed the graffiti on the Fremantle Shipwrecks Gallery did not get run over by a nice heavy container train.

Mindless vandalism of buildings, especially historic ones, is a disgrace, so get a life, whoever you are, you fool!

FREMANTLE ART AND EYESORE COMBO

Posted in art, city of fremantle, graffiti, Uncategorized by freoview on June 18, 2018

 

 

The beautification of less attractive buildings is welcome, but some people go over the top with it. The mural graffiti artwork by Art-By-Row at Redhot Design in Fremantle is an example of not knowing when to stop and to show restraint.

The dog image is funny and the portrait is nice too, but did the artist really have to paint every centimetre of the buildings and fence?  For me it is a mix of art and eyesore, and I wonder if property owners do need council approval for these very large murals.

Here a bit-too much-of colour on a drab day.

GRAFFITI VANDALISM RAMPANT IN FREMANTLE

Posted in city of fremantle, graffiti, law&order, local government, Uncategorized, vandalism by freoview on April 10, 2018

Graffiti vandalism has been rampant in Fremantle from North to South over the last weeks.

The inconsiderate morons don’t care that it cost the community millions of dollars to clean up the stupid tagging rubbish they spray onto every surface they can find.

And the illegal bill posting of massive posters that promote music gigs is also highly annoying and not on.

Their total lack of respect for property and people is unbelievable and unacceptable!

FREO RAINBOW ART VANDALISED AGAIN

Posted in art, city of fremantle, crime, graffiti, law&order by freoview on November 9, 2016

rainbow-1 rainbow-2

 

I did not need the Trump election to make me realise there are a lot of idiots on our planet, but my mood soured even more this afternoon when I noticed some morons have vandalised the Fremantle Rainbow artwork by spraying graffiti on the second and third containers at the northern end.

No mate you are not clever, you are not an artist, you are a disrespectful fool! I hope the cops will catch you and put you in the slammer because all you are is a stupid little scum criminal our society does not want.

GRAFFIDIOTS VANDALISE FREO’S RAINBOW ARTWORK

Posted in art, fremantle, graffiti, vandalism by freoview on October 12, 2016

g-1

 

I am not sure what to call the morons, dickheads, idiots, braindead vandals who put graffiti tagging on the stunning seacontainers Rainbow artwork at Fremantle’s Beach Reserve on Canning Highway, but I hope the fools will get caught by police and the new graffiti laws will come down hard on them.

One off graffiti fines are now a maximum of two years in jail or $ 24,000 fine, with compulsory clean-up orders for convicted vandals.

If they record their crimes on mobile phone, tablet, laptop, GoPro, computers, video, or other cameras these items will be confiscated by police and destroyed under new laws just implemented by the State Government.

FREO’S DARING ARTY FUTURE

Posted in art, fremantle, graffiti, western australia by freoview on May 30, 2016

daring future

 

I like the optimistic message of the graffiti on this temporary wall in the Fremantle High Street mall, so when Freo identity and artist Horatio B. Birdbath walked by I had to ask him to pose for me.

Horatio is well-known for his detailed artwork on the wall behind Gino’s in market street and some columns at Kings Square.
