There is a mural on Ahmad bin Hanbal street that features a tall skinny woman in orange overalls
below: She’s got white (paper?) wings and a folded paper boat in her hand.
below: Watch out, not the best place to park! She’s about to stomp on the back window.
Close to the intersection of Dhirar Bin Al-Azwar street and Moh’d Al-Shurayqi street are two pieces of street art. They have nothing in common except their proximity to each other.
First is a bright mural called “Odin” by Suhaib Attar of a bird on top of an old man’s head. The feathers on the bird meld into the hair of the man’s beard and moustache. Is the bird dead or alive?
Odin is the bearded one-eyed Norse god of is the god of wisdom, poetry, death, divination, and magic. He was often accompanied by two wolves and two ravens.
The other wall features a more modern character, Batman.
Someone has written “quarter life crisis” on the wall. I suspect that it has nothing to do with Batman but I rather like the juxtaposition.
A wonderful large pink flamingo brightens up Dirar Ben Al-Azwar street in Amman.
It is one of the many murals around the city that was painted by Suhaib Attar.
What will I be when I grow up?
German artistic duo Herakut, (Hera + Akut) painted this large mural in 2015.
There are several faces on two murals on different walls, one older and one newer. First is a series of faces starting with this singing woman in a turban.
below: Several of the face were painted by Batool Edris
below: He has the whole city in his head – or overflowing from his head! (another two portraits by Batool Edris)
below: Speaking in Arabic
below: On the right is Edris’s portrait of Salvador Dali. On the other side of the orange gate is a cactus-headed person
The second mural is “Unity in Diversity” painted late in 2018 by @mahahindi_, Afnan Barqawi, and the Orenda Tribe (with support from the US Embassy).
