The best street art mural I’ve painted

“Paint the best wall mural you’ve ever painted…” This was my brief from Andrew and Sue at Santa Fe Restaurant in Subiaco, Perth. After 8 days of painting and pushing myself to the max, I managed to produce the best mural I’ve painted to date… but not without some hiccups along the way which you can hear more about in this vlog! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oIOcl…

Frida Kahlo street art Mural

Frida Kahlo was a Mexican artist who had a famously tragic life – from having Polio as a child, to being impaled by a tram in an accident when she was 18, which led to multiple spinal operations. She is one of my favourite artists and when Sue and Andrew asked me to paint the inside of iconic Santa Fe restaurant, I jumped at the chance to paint a tribute to Frida and her relationship with her on-and-off-again husband, Diego Rivera whom she affectionately called her “toad-frog”.

SantaFe8Diego

Apart from being a famous muralist, Diego was a well known womaniser and their relationship was famously tumultuous; a thrilling story of adultery, bisexuality and general disfunction. They divorced in 1939 and then remarried again the next year.

SantaFe3

The structure of the mural is loosely based on one of my favourite paintings of hers, Las Dos Fridas (The Two Fridas) which shows two “Fridas” sitting side by side, with exposed hearts linked together with blood vessels. She painted it shortly after her divorce from Diego in 1939 and it records her emotions surrounding the crisis.

In Santa Fe, Frida is in the main room, with her beloved, ‘toad-frog’, Diego, in the next room. Though they aren’t looking directly at each other, they’re linked by their hearts which are each looking for the other. It’s both a tribute to their own relationship, but also more generally, a comment about the bonds of love and relationships.

Thank you to:

Andrew and Sue from Santa Fe Perth, Olivia for her awesome filming and painting, Mitch and Matt for being my most excellent minions and photographers!

Davy Jones surfboard commission success!

Davy Jones themed surfboard painting

Finally got around to processing the final photos of Ryan’s Davy Jones surfboard that I painted a few weeks ago. It was one of my most challenging commissions, but it was awesome to have the opportunity and scope and really give my painting skills a workout.

If you’re interested in having a board custom painted, visit http://www.fieldey.com/commissions.html and fill in the form and I’ll get back to you with a quote.

Balcatta Senior High surfboard art workshops

I’ve been having a blast doing a surfboard painting workshop at Balcatta Senior High for the past 3 weeks. It’s for the Gifted and Talented Arts Program and I’m stoked with the progress these guys are making! How lucky are they to go to a school that offers these kinds of programs… the best we used to get was still-life painting and Lino cutting!

More Fieldey workshops are going to be coming to Sydney and Perth this year – if you’re interested in participating or want to suggest a location please contact me with the details.

Students preparing their boards for painting – we’re using second hand boards so they need a fair amount of cleaning.

This is one of my favourite boards and colour combos – clever use of the ol’ liquid soap effect

Shark love ~ Hawaii pinup style

Finished commission surfboard artwork

After three weeks in the making, this beautiful custom made and painted board is ready to be shipped to Karen in Florida! Karen contacted me via my website, asking if I could hand paint a surfboard for her. Working with my pals at Oceanline Surfboards here in Western Australia, we created this 6’8″ Funboard Egg with custom deck sprays and artwork. This baby is going to be queen of the waves!

Pictures of the whole process are below, but if you’re interested in having a board painted or getting a custom Fieldey inlay for a board you are having made, please either contact me or fill in the commissions form on my website.

Sketch for the commission artwork

It all starts with a sketch – the initial concept sketch I sent to Karen.

Work in progress

The painting begins – I’m using Molotow One4All inks for this
