Art trans­for­ma­tion paves the way

Joondalup Times - - STREET WATCH -

COLOUR­FUL paintings have trans­formed dull grey cabi­nets across Perth as part of a Wa­ter Cor­po­ra­tion cam­paign.

Artist Hay­ley Welsh re­cently painted a waste­water elec­tri­cal cabi­net near the Marmion An­gling and Aquatic Club, while Mul­laloo artist Peter Ryan painted an­other in South Perth.

Welsh said her paint­ing was in­spired by the place, in­cor­po­rat­ing her sur­real char­ac­ters and a mes­sage for peo­ple on the coastal path.

Ryan said he tried to in­cor­po­rate the sur­round­ing area into his mu­ral in South Perth.

The Splash of Colour com­mu­nity art pro­gram in­volves trans­form­ing wa­ter and waste­water elec­tri­cal cabi­nets, de­scribed by Wa­ter Min­is­ter Dave Kelly as “grey square boxes”, into pub­lic art pieces.
