  • Coal Miners Art

    This wall art was done by a local Fremantle boy named Jacob Butler (aka Shakey).
    ALL ABOUT HIM
    I photographed these in a mall entrance to Woolworths supermarket in Collie W.A.

    I dusted once and it came back. I'm not falling for that again!

    Wonderful, Historic as well. The paintings will probably not last as long as the images made from them. Mining in the future will probably be done by robotics.
    Better a full bottle in front of me
    than a full frontal lobotomy.

        Cheers Hans. I hope they look after the paintings for as long as possible. In the future, they may come up with a coating that will prolong their life. Rio Tinto has 2 mines in the Pilbara whaich are using fully automated driverless Haulpaks which carry up to 230 tonnes and go 24/7, no tea or lunch breaks. Gina is making much more billions now she doesn't need drivers. My bass player's son was a computer design engineer that wrote software that runs them when they first came here and he operated one with a computer and joystick from the Perth office, about 1200km away.

        You're welcome Alan. Better to see in the flesh but photos are good too.

          A beaut series of images - and some excellent art work there by 'Shakey'

          For those images, they are probably over-painted with a lacquer / varnish to protect them from graffiti goons as well

            Cheers Phil. He's a very talented artist. I reckon a coating has been applied. I don't think graffiti scumbags would dare deface that lot. The locals would probably escort them down a dark alleyway and give them a jolly good talking to!
