Monday Mural

Our City Square, pretty boring as it was, has gone and it will become part of an entrance to Flinders Street Station when the Metro Tunnel is built. Artwork on the hoardings surrounding the site keep changing. Of course there was an explanatory board about the work and the artist and of course I forgot to photograph the board. I quite like the figures.




Later edit: The work is by Will and Garrett Huxley. The explanation of the work is the usual modern art speil wankery and I won't inflict it upon you.

  1. It is fun.
    I always enjoy murals and I suspect it is the blogosphere which first started me looking (or paying attention).

    1. WWW, you should. It is up to us older people to highlight the creative work of the youngers.

  6. So much more interesting than much of what one sees. I suspect the painter has completed an Art Degree, or similar.

    1. Grace, we have the superior Federation Square now, except it is the roof of railway lines and can't have trees.
