jazzy bee

This little fellow has been appearing on walls and surfaces around Reservoir St, Surry Hills.


  1. Gnomes are knon to travel! There is a mural artist here that has put so many of his stylized creatures, including gnomes, in all sorts of places in just the past year or so, its amazing to see how prolific he is.
    Sally, what is the scale of these?

  2. Cute! I'll have to google jazzy b to see what it's all about. I'm sure there's some advertising scheme behind it.

  3. I'm just wondering that those little fellow are appearing for what? Are they trying to scare people? Or They are our little friends?

  4. How strange. I Googled and up come social networking sites but when you click on them I didn't come up with anything of significance but I'm rushed - perhaps need more time. Let us know when you know what it's all about.

  5. I’ve always liked street art. Do you know more about this little fellow yet? Hopefully it is not a viral marketing campaign. However, the garden gnomes seem to become really popular these days.

  6. I also noticed how the topography of Sydney was so incredibly varied with cliffs, oceans, mountains, dry desert like patches, and then lush vegetation. The mix of all these harsh and seemingly wild landscapes also remind me that this country is incredibly young in comparison to many others. This could be partly why so much of Australia still appears untamed,and still similar to how it must have appeared to the British settlers. I wonder how this country will change as it ages? Have Australian people come to appreciate the landscape and its features or is there still part of them that fears the Bush? I'm unsure.
