Fremantle Urban Art Walk, Australia


Parking lot mural, Fremantle, Australia


On our first day in Fremantle, Australia, four of us went on a guided 3.5 hour “art walk” around the central part of the town, with forays into some of the industrial and port areas.  As mentioned in our previous blog, Fremantle is well known in Australia for its public displays of art, along with numerous galleries for the local artists.  We were surprised by the extent of the art we walked by in just a few hours – all of it being outdoors.  Part of the fun was that we found art in unexpected places, such as on bus stop shelters.  As you will see, a lot of it was very creative and quite colorful.



In addition to art on the sides of an abandoned warehouse, we found very colorful contemporary advertising posters, Fremantle, Australia
