Mural one to tweet about
International artist Jerome Davenport has returned to his home soil painting large-scale murals across the country.
His most recent work is in his home town of Wickepin, where he created a flora and fauna mural at the primary school.
The talented artist is currently in Albany, where he can be found, aerosol can in hand, transforming the plaza wall on Albany Highway.
The 28-year-old large-scale artist returned to his home roots, painting through rainy conditions and creating large-scale master pieces.
The project has been in the works since earlier this year and Mr Davenport said he was thrilled to be in Albany working on this mural.
“It’s been a long time coming, a few months in the process, so I’m stoked to finally be here doing this scale,” he said.
“I always planned to do a flora fauna piece — I wanted to do something relative to the surrounds of Albany and the South West.
“The animals I have painted are either endangered or borderline extinct, so it really celebrates the native plants and wildlife in the area.”
The trademark aerosol artist said he was pleased with the community feedback he had received while working on the mural.
