Dipesh ‘Peche’ Prasad
With over a decade of involvement in the creative industry, Peche has worked both locally & internationally as a graphic designer, visual artist & muralist. He’s committed to creating artworks which draw on heritage through local flora & fauna, and engaging with the local community during the process.
“I think drawing since childhood inspired the path to continue it into a career. I wasn't into sports which meant a lot of hours drawing and playing video games. All of which continued on into adulthood.”
His mural Neon Swan, completed in January 2022, was chosen for its representation of iconic Western Australia fauna, rendered in bold colour & graphic linework. It marks the entry of Tidal Lane with its vibrancy serving as a fitting introduction to the precinct.
Neon Swan can be found on the western wall of Varsity Bar, just opposite the Walylup Civic Centre.
