West End has a long history of multiculturalism and artistic creativity. Post Expo'88, Southbank changed significantly from the industrial part of central Brisbane to a trendy new place to be and be seen. This change has been progressively spreading into West End, with trendy new restaurants/cafe's and apartments taking over however you can still find the "old" West End along with artistic outbursts if you look.
I found this example of a "Can Critter" on a power pole between a shiny apartment complex and one of the older timber homes that were originally in West End. Love the use of an DB15 connector for the mouth.
