Wall Art in Frankston with Sis

I hadn’t originally planned any activities for my sister and niece on their first day in Melbourne, but it turned into quite a busy day.

We ended up heading to Frankston beach to admire the stunning wall art from the recently concluded 2024 Big Picture Fest. I am linking this to Natalie’s Photographing Public Art Challenge – PPAC.

Debbie’s Six Word Saturday – 6WS

Here are some of the incredible pieces we came across.

By Melbourne artist, street artist and muralist, Kitt Bennett. His work can be seen on Station Street, Frankston. 

One of my favourite street artist, Bronik, is a Peruvian artist residing in Melbourne. Her work can be seen on Nepean Highway (near the corner of Wells Street). 

Demsky started his creative journey doing graffiti in the early 90s. Since then he has been travelling and spraying throughout more than 50 countries. Check out Demsky’s 2024 Big Picture Fest artwork in the Cube37 Gallery. 

Graffiti/mural artist JEKS, has made a name for himself globally with his realistic monochromatic and full color portraits. This one is on Park Lane, Frankston

Marcus Debie aka GOMAD, born in 1972, is a graffiti artist and muralist from the Netherlands. This one can be seen in Park Row, Frankston.

Calum is a 27 year old, Australian artist. He moved to Sydney as a semi-professional cricketer and is now doing art. You can see Calum’s artwork for the 2024 Big Picture Fest on Station Street, Frankston. 

We took a leisurely stroll through the streets, hunting down 11 pieces of this year’s wall art, and unexpectedly stumbled upon additional pieces from last year’s collection. It turned into quite a lengthy walk!

Oh and I almost forgot to mention… saw some benches and chairs along the way.

And just in time for the sunset at the pier and dinner.

It was an absolutely wonderful day spent catching up with family—though a bit tiring, it was filled with laughter and joy!

    Fun post. I love the bright colors.
    About the ping backs: I found that, for some reason, they were putting your ping backs into my spam folder. I approved them all and am hoping that will train the system to know that you are a good one. It looks to me like it started when they switched to the AI assist thing, which I haven’t figured out how to turn off. I’ll double check my spam folder more often so this won’t happen again.

      Haha I was just wondering and thanks for looking into it. Also thanks… glad you liked my very bright chairs.

    Wonderful post, and some outstanding murals. It is funny how distinctive South American art is – the Peruvian piece is very different.

    1. Teresa says:

      That’s why I love it. There’s something distinct about it. Thanks for commenting.
