GREY cabinets in Trigg and Watermans Bay have been transformed into eye catching artworks as part of a community art initiative this month.
Artist Darren Hutchens, of Fremantle, painted one of the water and wastewater electrical cabinets in Trigg on Thursday as part of Water Corporation’s ‘Splash of colour’ campaign.
Secret Harbour artist Samantha Prentice visited Watermans Bay on Friday to paint a beach-themed scene with crabs on another.
She has already given 24 Western Power cabinets similar makeovers around Secret Harbour.
The community art program involves transforming seven cabinets across Perth, described by Water Minister Dave Kelly as “grey square boxes”, into public art pieces.
