Phlegm’s New Mural in Perth, Australia

by Sasha BogojevPosted on

British artist Phlegm recently took off on another world tour during which he will be creating some new murals around the globe. He started off with painting this mural in Perth, Australia for the Public mural festival. The festival took place from April 5-13, 2014 and included 45 artists from around the world painting 30 big walls around the city. The Sheffield-born artist was chosen to paint this large orange wall, just around the corner from Belgian artist Roa. With both artists using strictly black and white colors, their massive and super detailed murals looked impressive on these large walls.

Phlegm painted a new complex image from his creation myth series. The image shows a large, surreal creature carrying one of a signature Phlegm character inside it’s belly, and a big bird that is carrying the universe on its elaborate tail. Both of these images are enriched with numerous details, symbols and ornaments that are noticeable upon closer inspection of this piece. This massive mural also contains some unusual details that were not familiar in his previous creations: The conspicuous use of twirls, circles and dots indicates the influence of traditional aboriginal art. Along with creating this incredible public work, Phlegm also introduced his upcoming limited edition etching that he will be releasing upon his arrival back home in few months.
