Claremont – The Lane Bookshop – Hayley Welsh

Hayley Welsh is another Perth-based artist whose work is closely associated with books. Recently we spotted one of her little creatures on the wall of the Lane Bookshop in Claremont.

Victoria Park – Hayley Welsh

We visited the exhibition “Torn” by Hayley Welsh a few weeks ago and mentioned it here. This week, Hayley went back to her street art roots and painted some of her imaginary animals at various locations along a stretch of Albany Highway in Victoria Park. This outdoor exhibition, titled “The Things We Can Find” did not have a book reading animal but there was one with what looks like a rolled up newspaper.

Perth – Hayley Welsh Exhibition

The Linton and Kay Gallery in St George’s Terrace in Perth city centre is currently holding an exhibition by Hayley Welsh. Hayley’s art often includes books and we featured her wall mural at Curtin University in a previous blog.
The current exhibition is titled “Torn” and several of the art works are based on a page from an old book. Hayley’s art also often features a fantastical rabbit-like animal which is kind of appropriate for the Easter season.
The exhibition continues until 23 April.
