Perth Artist Trevor Richards has applied his striking designs to the windows of five old shopfronts on Beaufort Street between Aberdeen and Newcastle, adjacent to Central Institute.
The Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority and Gallery Central have commissioned Richards to create a strip of geometric designs linking the spaces and enlivening the disused shops. Richards completed the first shop window in early 2013 with a design derived from a floor tile pattern discovered at the New Norcia Hotel, formerly a Benedictine Hostel.  All the designs are inspired by mosaic tile patterns from churches and other buildings around the world.
