Polaroid Guy

On a little dead end street near Gumpendorfgasse u-bahn station, there is a small series of murals. The most prominent one, is of a man in a black striped long sleeved T-shirt taking a picture with a polaroid camera.

To his right are a few images that look like they are the resulting polaroids – part of his collection perhaps.

These images were painted by Jana and JS, a couple who have been painting murals together for many years.

on Christophgasse

in the Margareten district of Vienna…

below: A collaboration between Dutch artist nilsRVA (aka Nils Westergard) and local Viennese artist emilone (aka emanuel jesse) produced this peaceful looking sleeper.

below: The woman on the right with the curly hair was painted by Paola Delfin.

below: Some more emilone pieces – unfortunately with some graffiti added.

below: Down beside the man in the baseball cap, there is text, p.phobia. Is this a “signature” of the person who painted that man? The righthand side of the artwork is more emilone.

The painting are from 2014 and 2015. The photos were taken June 2022.
