Old Bridge Cellars

 

The Old Bridge Cellars bottleshop in North Fremantle, which already has some lovely Aboriginal art on the front of the building, has added this very Freo mural on the back of the building.

Unfortunately I don’t know who the artist is so I can’t give him/her the credit they deserve. If anyone knows, please do let me know, so that I can add it here!

I have just been informed that the artist is Shaky Jakey!

The City of Fremantle’s Planning Committee will this evening deliberate if it will grant ALDI approval to change the use from shop to liquor shop in their South Fremantle shopping centre premises.

If Fremantle Council approves the application it would mean that three bottle shops would operate from the shopping centre on the corner of Douro and Hampton roads, as Liquorland and Dan Murphy’s already got shops there.

FREO’S ANIMAL ARTISTS

Posted in fremantle by freoview on February 19, 2013

Fremantle is rapidly becoming the city of great mural art on exterior and interior walls of buildings, mostly sponsored by local businesses. There appears to be a bit of an animal theme with the huge numbat by Belgian artist ROA in the Henderson Street mall being one of the first and commissioned by the City of Fremantle. At the Ootong&Lincoln Cafe two big colourful zebra heads have been painted while in North Fremantle the Old Bridge Cellars obviously hoped their customers drink like fish when they commissioned indigenous artist Herbert Marshall to paint his beautiful fish on their wall.

I think it is fantastic that local businesses support art and that they beautify our city with good public art. Soon someone will have to start tours to show visitors all our gorgeous artworks.
