aptART gender equality

In central Amman is a mural of a face that is divided vertically down the middle, half male and half female.  It was painted by Akut (half of Herakut) in 2016.

This mural was made with the support of USAid and aptART.  The latter is an acronym for Awareness and Prevention through Art.  In this case, they are highlighting the question of gender equality.   They sponsored four other murals in Amman but unfortunately I don’t have any photos of them (nor did I see them when I was there).

zedr_one, Melbourne

Among the many street art pieces and murals painted in Artists Lane, an alley that parallels Chapel Street in the Windsor neighbourhood of Melbourne, there are four faces painted by zedr_one.

street art piece by zedr_one of two men's faces, one in profile, and the other more straight on. The second, is wearing a black toque hat and has the start of a beard and a moustache.

Considering all the female faces that are painted, it’s nice to see some men.
