Is Perth the new Melbourne?

On a recent trip to Perth we took the opportunity of visiting the car park under the newly refurbished Condor Tower. Rather than painting the multi level underground car park in the usual regulation grey (or the more unusual bright white) the developer of the site was keen to do something different. And to that effect he engaged the services of Steve Berrick and the team at Ololo. Through various connections a number of graffiti artists gave their time at no cost to decorate specific sections of the car park with images loosely following various themes depending on the individual levels of the car park (Space, Sky, Land, Underwater and so on). This is how the organisers described the project:

On Saturday July 25th, we will unveil what we deem to be the largest permanent street art exhibition in the southern hemisphere. Housed at the base of the newly built Condor Tower, the 5 level car park has seen more than 60 artists add their artwork to the space, mostly locals with a handful from over east and a couple of internationals.

The developer was delighted with the outcome (particularly given that the cost of the project was limited to the paint, with the artists donating their time free of charge). This is one unique way of ensuring you remember where you left your car!
