It is Fringe time in Adelaide and a festive and cultural boon occurs. The creative types get out and about and entertain in so many ways. Anybody can join in even those with a limited budget.
The Port of Adelaide had a three day wonderwall festival where entertainment, artists and foodies got together whilst these murals were being formed.
The lingering artworks are there for your visual pleasure for the rest of the year, some of them you really do have to hunt down as they can be found in the most obscure laneways.
The girl in the bottle is one such case, tucked away on a pedestrian street. I love the line work and detail in this although I find her being trapped in a bottle a little disturbing. This work is by Kyle Hughes-Odgers and is called "Message in a bottle"
Adelaide artist Kab101 painted the side of the old flour mill building , part of the Hart Mills Buildings
A similar style of work is found at the Edge Cafe on Jetty Rd Brighton. Troy the owner informs us that the work is part of a poem so I assume that this would be similar.(now I have to find out what poem)
I just looked at his instagram account and he did do the walls in the Edge cafe
When looking at the festival site on the internet the artist weren't necessarily matched up to their works of art, so it is all a bit of a guessing game. This photo was taken in a rear alley of Commercial street near Murryatt street, tucked away around a corner and around another. Only those on a mission will find this beauty and what a waste not to see it.
and lastly Order55 - Seb Humphreys
There are other artist which have produced for the wonderwalls but being 38 degrees when I was out and about and my water bottle emptied I decided it was time to move off home and not suffer from heat stroke...another day!
