A FANCIFUL tree house is the highlight of an eye-catching mural that has been painted on the front of the Scouts building in Lathlain.
The project was a collaboration between the Town of Victoria Park, Lathlain Scouts and Girl Guides, and artist Daek Williams.
Williams prepared three concepts for review, based on the Town’s brief for the mural to be colourful and community-friendly.
“The whimsical tree house is symbolic, it’s about letting kids be kids, allowing them to have fun,” he said.
“Life is an adventure and imagination is the key to being a kid and doing great things.”
Town Deputy Mayor Brian Oliver said the mural was fun and certainly captured attention when walking past the building.
“Daek Williams is very talented and his work has certainly transformed the Scouts building,” he said.
“The concept clearly aligns with the Scouts and Girl Guides principles of providing a wide range of constructive and challenging activities including opportunities for adventure and exploration, both indoors and outdoors.”
The mural is part of the revitalisation of the Scouts building and grounds, which form Zone 8 in the Town’s $70 million Lathlain Precinct Redevelopment Project.
