Monday Mural - Bus Stop 1

Not far from my workplace is Curtin University, and recently driving through a street behind the university that I don't normally use - Hayman Road - I came across 3 brightly decorated bus stops.

After some investigation I found out these bus-stops were painted in December 2012 by Perth artist Dan Duggan and students from Collier Primary School, with the purpose of reducing graffiti on the concrete bus shelters.

For other murals from around the world follow this link.

  4. I love this. The colors, the designs, and the implied graffiti look on some of the panels make this a fun and exciting place to sit and wait for a bus.

  6. They are very bright and if the intent was to reduce graffiti, it seems to have worked.

    1. I hope so too Klara. They've been clear for 5 1/2 years so hopefully they continue that way.

  18. That is a very cool bus stop! I like the colourful mural but also the shape of it with the panels and the "anti-social" benches. Much more fun that regular ones.

  19. Thanks Sara, yes those benches are not made for sitting around too long :)

  21. So I had to scroll back to see the first one. The holes for seeing the on-coming bus are a good idea.
