Fieldey x Robert Jenkins Collab Mural

 

An awesome blues-themed street art mashup collab between Fieldey and Robert Jenkins in Best Brew Bar.

One of the Managers from Four Points Perth, came across Rob (https://www.facebook.com/theblackmoun…) and I painting street art murals next to each other in a Laneway last year. He got in contact and asked us to come in and turn their bar into something pretty special.

We had 3 days to cover most of the walls and pillars and I had the challenge of painting the largest portrait I’ve ever done! We used a mixture of aerosol paint and house paint.

New Bohemian Sky Burial Mural for Fez Cafe!

It is with great pleasure that I present the final pictures of the interior wall mural I was painting last week!

Fez Cafe, Mt Lawley decided they were going to change their look and they asked me to paint a mural in the cafe. They have pretty much been the perfect hosts, from giving me a open brief (bohemian) that I could interpret however I liked, and trusting me when I decided to paint a massive vulture on the wall, that it was going to be “very tasteful”. They also kept me going with wicked coffees and lots of lunches. Dream gig!

Originally, I was just going to paint a girl on the wall since I’ve been working on my portrait skills recently and I wanted to roll with that, but after I thought about it for a bit it just seemed kinda… empty… like it was missing something and there was no narrative to the concept. I’m also not a fan of painting pretty things for the sake of being pretty, I like to mix it with something a little bit darker. After mulling over it for a few days the medieval sport of falconry popped into my head along with the idea of her having a giant pet vulture. It’s funny, but the more you work on a concept the more associations tend to pop up and I was reminded of the practice of Tibetan Sky Burial… which if you don’t know what that is, google it carefully and not with image search. So in the end the concept is a kind of goddess of sky burial.

Another point to make about the artwork is that instead of using some vague internet lady to paint from, I actually photographed my friend Monday (Check out her stuff on Facebook: Monday Art) who kindly stood in my studio looking ‘mystical’ while I photographed her holding an invisible bird. I really think it makes all the difference to paint using your own reference and also people you know… it seems to give the work more life.

Big thanks also to Matt Fieldes Photography for taking the awesome photos!

Bad jokes and new mural on Walcott St

Frankly My Dear I Don't Care for Spam

I recently got the chance to bring together two of my favourite things: Clark Gable and Spam on a wall on the iconic Learoyd St deli in Mount Lawley, Perth.

Clark Gable Mural

It was a project that was done on a budget with some serious time constraints… in the middle of summer. There was some damn early mornings spent at that wall feverishly painting before the sun came up and started frying me and my paint, but I’m actually really stoked with the result.

Walcott St deli wall

The old deli wall was covered in a bunch of advertising and posters, so I decided to work with what I had and create a fake anti-spam ad in the middle of it all.

Big shout out as well to my mega minion Mitch, who helped with the anal retentive bits… I couldn’t have done it without him.

#Pupsout Knockout for Wall to Wall

Pups Out for the win in a Perth street art challenge

Kindly reposted from The Rabbit Hole Gallery

Fieldey was dubbed the gong-getter of last night’s Wall to Wall live painting exhibition at Little Wing Corner Gallery.

After a gruelling two and a half hour paint-off- especially for unwell Kiara Thomas, whose voice was dwindling to a hoarse whisper- Fieldey stole the show with her magnificent #pupsout piece.

However, RLSM, Kiara Thomas, Girl The Toy and Breezy E definitely didn’t let her off easy, with some outstanding work in an extremely high-pressure environment and short time frame.

Fieldey walked away the champion with a golden skull-on-a-cricketer’s-body trophy, #vodkabrainartguy, and $300 cash.

The Rabbit Hole sends a huge congratulations to Fieldey and all of the artists involved.

A storm in a D-cup

A little piece of mine painted on the Corner Gallery wall in Subiaco, has inadvertently caused a tweeting ruckus… get ready to clutch your pearls and read on gentle reader…Subiaco Post News paper article

 

From the Subiaco Post, by LLOYD GORMAN

Subiaco’s marketing arm, Visit Subiaco, was forced to remove an image from its social media site this week following complaints it was offensive to women.

The image of a woman with dog heads for breasts and the slogan Check Dem Puppies appeared as a tweet on the Visit Subiaco site, which is linked to a Facebook page and website.

The image is painted on the side wall of the Corner Gallery in Hay Street, on the corner of Olive Street, by artist Haylee Fieldes, known as Fieldey, who strongly defended her satirical street art.

When the female owners of three Subiaco fashion stores saw the image online they complained to the council. “[We] would like to bring to your attention, on Visit Subiaco’s webpage, an inappropriate image that has been re-tweeted by the Visit Subiaco staff,” the shop owners told the mayor and councillors in an email.

“We all find this image offensive and inappropriate and would like to know how this image helps portray the women who work and live in Subiaco. “Does this type of image portray Subiaco as a safe and family friendly area? “From a community aspect, how does this help the self esteem of women who might be seeing this image? “The image needs to be taken down and someone should be made accountable for using such an image to portray Subiaco.” A male councillor described the image as “absolutely offensive material” and it was taken offline on Tuesday.

One female shopkeeper said she was disgusted by the image. “My mother and my sister had breast cancer, this is a disgusting portrayal of women and totally inappropriate for the City to be promoting,” she said.

Fieldey, the 31-year-old female artist who painted it, said she was proud of her work and defended it. “The joy of social media is that you never know where your art might appear on the internet,” she said. “I love the fact that Visit Subiaco found this piece of street art interesting and engaging enough to want to share it to promote the city. “As a woman and a feminist, I painted this piece to satirise objectification of women. While it’s a pity people found this offensive, art by nature and in its purest form is always in the eye of the beholder.”

Acting Subiaco CEO Scott Hawkins said: “The original tweet about the image was automatically re-tweeted by Visit Subiaco’s website content management system. The image has since been removed.”

Vulgar wall mural of the stars!

A nice little time-lapse of me painting my first wall, filmed by the dudes at ArtLab!

The painting took two days and in that time I got some delightfully disgusted looks from passers by as it began to take shape.
