I can’t remember what I was doing in the second week of April this year, but I’m pretty sure it wasn’t painting a gigantic mural on the side of a Perth city building.

I know, I’m disappointed too.

The same can’t be said for the 45 artists who contributed to PUBLIC: Art in the City, coordinated by Form. Well-known international and Australian artists (including Perth locals like Stormie Mills, Anya Brock and the Last Chance collective) spent the week from 5 April to 13 April painting their work onto underpasses, walls and buildings, transforming some of Perth’s most sterile spaces into dynamic urban canvases. Take a look at the painting process:

 

You’ve probably seen some of the works around the city, and you can go it alone with this map from Form, but if you want to explore the street gallery with an expert, try the Public Urban Artwalks. You’ll be taken on a tour of the streets with a guide from Form – a walk that includes a stop at a resident artist’s studio, and a complimentary drink at a local bar – and you’ll also receive a map, so that you can impress your friends later with your insider knowledge of Perth’s urban art.

The walks run every Thursday and Saturday afternoon until the end of November – book ahead by contacting Form to avoid missing your preferred time.
