Erskineville, art (Theme Day: Right Under Your Nose)

This artwork is located on the facade of a former warehouse along Rochford Street, in the inner city suburb of Erskineville. "The Lips" features a mural created by artist Rachel Szalay in 2020, celebrating the Australian Golden Wattle and Flowering Gum Trees. The warehouse was built in the 1930s and was previously used as a co-working space for creative industry freelancers, small businesses and entrepreneurs. It has now been redeveloped and converted into a couple of residential properties. I photographed this artwork when the lips featured a different design, which can be seen here and originally when they were a plain red, which can be seen here

  1. Pucker up!
    Not sure how this art work celebrates wattles and gum trees, I must be missing the allusion!
    Thanks for sharing at

    1. It's the mural itself which celebrates the flowers. The lips were already there.

  2. Perfect for theme. We were thinking along the same lines.

  3. Lips are certainly 'right under the nose'. Good idea.

  4. That is cool!! And in my 5kms. Might walk in to that one for exercise (instead of my harbour jaunt)

  5. Much more striking now. I like what was done.

  6. Yum!! Great capture :)
