STREET artist Amok Island has designed and installed a large mural next to Marmion Angling and Aquatic Club.

The mural was part of the City of Joondalup’s redevelopment of the Marmion Foreshore carpark on West Coast Drive, which added more parking bays and a staircase down to the beach.

Titled Creatures of Marmion Marine Park, the 75m long, 4m high artwork is Island’s take on vintage scientific species identification charts and features marine life found in the marine park.

A second mural, from fellow WA artist David Ledger, has been installed on the west-facing side of the Sorrento Beach change rooms.

The artwork complements the first mural installed on the east-facing side of the building 12 months ago.

The murals titled Dazzle I and Dazzle II are landscapes that feature geometric clouds that intersect with the horizon.

The names refer to a type of ship camouflage called dazzle used in World Wars I and II consisting of complex patterns and geometric shapes in contrasting colours.

Drone Photography WA took a video of the Marmion mural.
