Like a curious and inexorable infection of awesomeness and colour, PUBLIC 2015 is underway. We’ve already seen early signs of it out in the state’s peripheries in the Wheatbelt and Pilbara regions with splashes of colour and strange creatures being painted on walls and giant wheat silos, now get set to see over 50 international and local artists once again transform walls around our city into vibrant works of art, bringing creativity and inspiration out into the community.
Metropolitan locations will include Victoria Park, Leederville, Fremantle, Claremont, Northbridge, and Perth CBD where you can get the opportunity to see artists at work. Download the artwork location map and stay tuned for daily updates via FORM’s Facebook page to find out where and when you can witness creations in the making and even chat to the artists during breaks. We’ll be trying to get to as many as possible but amongst all the faces we’d love to see are local whizzes Stormie Mills, Kyle Hughes Odgers, Hayley Welsh, James Giddy, Anya Brock, Amok Island, and interstate/international greats Phlegm, Beastman, Vans the Omega, and Hense. If last year’s reimagining of places like Wolf Lane and Murray St is anything to go by, Perth you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.
Occurring concurrently and equally as excitement-inducing is the PUBLIC Symposium where a number of creative leaders who have impacted their own communities around the world through arts, architecture, urban planning and philanthropy will be coming to share their wealth of knowledge, ideas and experiences to stimulate conversation, collaboration and the collective fire in our bellies to shape and positively influence our own streets, neighbourhoods, cities and countries through art and creativity.
