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).
While walking in Fitzroy yesterday, I saw this face of a young aboriginal man that was just painted by street artist Adnate.
It is part of a larger mural painted in collaboration with street artist Serum.
below: I have seen a number of these portraits around Melbourne including this one high above Hosier Lane. This lane is filled with graffiti and street art and it is the lane that tourists come to see. I wonder how many of them look up far enough to see the face?
below: Back to Fitzroy where I have seen this large mural a couple of times now. Both times, the combination of the height of the building and the location of the sun has made taking a picture of it challenging.
