Renowned street artist Hayley Welsh and her “Lost Creatures” have returned to the Serpentine Jarrahdale Library Service, this time to breathe life into the bus stop on Clifton Street.

This bus shelter artwork was commissioned by the Shire following Hayley’s previous works painted on the Library’s exterior walls back in May, and has been now installed completing a series of accessibility upgrades to the footpath and bus stop along the street.

The new works are another step forward in Hayley’s Lost Creatures series, which has brought a collection of fluffy and wide-eyed critters to life in locations across the world including the United Kingdom, Europe and the United States.

The bus stop’s new look is the latest in a series of art installations at local Byford and Whitby bus shelters that has been carried out in recent months.

The project has seen several bus stops decked out with funky and lively artwork designed by Perth artists.

This includes a special artwork was installed at the Gordin Way bus shelter outside Byford Secondary College earlier this year.

The artwork was designed by the school’s arts students as part of NAIDOC Week celebrations, and has now helped add a splash of colour to the area.

The bus shelter arts project aligns with the Shire’s vision to activate and diversify Serpentine Jarrahdale’s local spaces.

Byford Secondary College students designed the artwork for the bus shelter outside the school on Gordin Way.
