In April 2016 while The Golfer and I were cruising round the South Pacific we stopped into Papeete Tahiti – and just look at what we saw 😊
Some fabulous enormous end of building murals.
I haven’t been able to find the name of the artist/s responsible for this first one but did discover it was painted during the 2014 Street Art Festival or Festival of Street Graffiti as I saw it described somewhere.
An online article plus a (see how they do it) video taken during the festival:-

This second one was a painted the next year 2015 for the same now annual festival, a collaboration between American artist Pose and Australian Dabs&Myla . Bright bright colours! Seen better when enlarged (with a click) 🙂

Murals brighten often dull areas (and days).
I really like the first one in particular today.
…fabulous, when I think of murals Tahiti doesn’t come to mind! Shows how much I know.

I wonder how many of the 2014 murals are still in place… it seems to be a very ephemeral art form. My impression from a tour of Papeete last week is that the people of Tahiti and some of the other islands are just crazy about their street art! As you say, it’s a coincidence that we both posted about Tahiti this week!

I love those murals, I recently saw a post on FB featuring a whole pile of brilliant ones. The man and the cat is particularly good.
The are both crazy and brilliant.
Great murals. Lucky you!
Great ones! Looks like a little whale in the first one.
The festivals have produced some great works
Fabulous murals Cathy. Couldn’t imagine murals being painted in Tahiti, but glad they also have street art. Thanks for contributing.
Just love those murals. They really brighten a place up!
