Spirit Dog Sculptures

Attadale, Australia

This public work of art outside of Perth depicts a dog walker and several mischievous canine companions. 


“Spirit” is the name given to this entertaining collection of sculptures that sit on the foreshore of the Perth suburb of Attadale. The work was created by local artist April Pine and was unveiled to the public in 2018.

The work of art consists of a dog walker in a state of distress with 10 canine companions for company, each in a different position. The sculptures were constructed using powder-coated aluminum, which was later compressed into grid-like structures to give each part 3-D transparency. Pine has developed a reputation across the city of Perth for her eye-catching works of art and this is just one of her many works that were commissioned across the city.

Born in North Yorkshire, England she emigrated to Australia to attend Curtin University where she achieved a Master’s degree in Architecture.

Know Before You Go

The sculptures can be found near the intersection between Burke Drive and Page Street, Attadale. Visitors can experience great views looking North from the beach towards the center of Perth.
