Welcome to WA

West Australia is the Mother of Invention because, well, it's made of small towns with few and far between.

So it seems... but there is more to this state than meets the eye. This blog aims to locate and educate, so get to know your state well!

Anonymous asked: That article doesn't mention anything about Fremantle 'buffing' his art? I don't understand?

The only thing Lister didn’t do in his artistic process was approach the council of Fremantle first. It’s strange to say that the argument given was Metro’s Freo being ‘heritage listed’, yet it doesn’t prevent painting the old Michelides Tobacco Factory on Roe Street, (which is soon to be demolished) a nasty dark green colour.

Does anyone remember this article? Mayor of Fremantle Brad Petit says ‘Art is not a Crime’.

The choices and actions of heritage listing and Fremantle Council in regards to this baffle me. A heritage listed building will be happily knocked down as long as a facade remains…that says a lot about the character of this town now doesn’t it?
