Brightening up the streets of Mullumbimby over the last month have been an ever growing array of street murals lining the pavement between Stewarts Menswear and the IGA on Burringbar Street. Having been travelling in the northern rivers since Spring pavement artist Adrien Stewart has spent the last month in Mullum providing lovely work for everyone to enjoy. He will be heading of in the not too distant future to Western Australia for the street arts festival that takes place in Fremantle.

Adrien has become a regular in Fremantle since he went there to finish off a piece of his early art, that was done on canvas, by a patron who lived there. He met lots of friends there and has now hitchhiked from Melbourne to WA several times. ‘A friend of mine bet me that I couldn’t do it (hitchhike to WA). You can spend a couple of days waiting for a lift on the edge of the desert but I met some great people who would take me to their homes and put me up for a couple of days.’

From Fremantle he is planning to head to the Northern Territory as he has never been there before.

‘I’ll come back to Mullum,’ Adrien said. ‘It has been great to me. No one has harassed me or put me down which is quite common in the big city.’

Adrien will be launching his web page The Dreams of the Purple Cat during the Fremantle street arts festival where you’ll be able to check out more of his work.

  1. I thank the people of Mullum; I’ve never known such appreciation. 🙂

    Len, I’m sorry. But I’m incapable of symmetry.
