Vasse Village Artists

Vasse is a vibrant and creative hub, housing many local musicians, artists, writers and more.  The town centre – Vasse Village – features the work of many renowned artists. Read more about the artists who created these pieces below.

Jack Bromell

Jack created the black cockatoo and magpies in the Vasse Village Arcade. Bromell is a Perth-based self-taught artist, known mainly for his large-scale murals. He spent most of his childhood growing up in Busselton. His murals often depict local flora and fauna, and the rich history of the South West region.

Melski Mcvee

Have you spotted some of our native wildlife – such as the Western Ring-Tail Possum, Pink-Eared Duck and Monarch Butterfly? Inspired by her love of native flora and fauna, you’ll find these native creatures on McVee’s mural “Surrounded I see”. It’s easy to find. Look to the wall adjacent from the Coles Vasse carpark.

Melski is known for her sculpture, community art murals and illustration.

Ian Mutch

Look up at the overhead glass panels in the Vasse Village Arcade and you’ll see Ian’s highly detailed artwork. Ian is a South-West artist whose work often has a playful narrative and appreciation of nature. Mutch says he is inspired by his upbringing “surrounded by wild landscapes, animals and patterns”. 

Drew Straker – “The Muralist”

Which unique mural literally lights up the street? It’ll be by Perth-based street/graffiti artist – Drew Straker. Drew’s use of spray paint make his murals appear to glow, like Neon lights. So it therefore became a natural transition for him to start making graffiti art from Neon lights. Drew’s neon lights Vasse mural is located in the Vasse Village Arcade.

Peter Zappa

Being so close to the ocean, it was no surprise that one of our artworks featured a bright, colourful fish. This clever design makes you feel like you’re watching the fish swim underwater.

Zappa is a Perth based artist who uses marine grade stainless steel and the traditional craft of blacksmithing to create his works. The artwork, titled “Water View” is located on the side of Vasse Village, on the corner of Napoleon Promenade and Birak Lane.

Russell Sheridan

Sheridan is an iconic Southwest artist who became prominently known for artwork that explores the “Australian larrikin”. His whimsical and warming style creates an engaging narrative to his sculptures, which you can find speckled throughout the Southwest region. His prominent sculpture of Timothy Vasse can be found on the corner of Napoleon Promenade and Northerly Street.
