I found myself stuck for a few minutes without an umbrella when the rain started. Luckily there was space under the arch at the entrance to Passage de la Bonne Graine
below: A little portrait by Sohan Street above a torn and defaced group photo of four men. The latter is signed in the bottom corner as Docteur something but because the paper is ripped, the rest of the name is lost.
Marvellously layered. Contributed to by many. Evolving over time.
below: “Please point the camera toward me” and a Salvador Dali portrait by Pat Brazil. In the middle, a large black and white object that resembles a bomb, a needlepoint bomb.
below: With hope in her eyes, by RAF Urban whose work reflects the idea that diversity is hope. Orange paint has partially hidden the bottle of pills (was there a label?) as well as the woman’s face and hands (what is she holding?).
below: Kandin ski. There are quite a few of these pictures around Barcelona – a whole series featuring different well known people. This Kandin-ski was the only one on this door. I haven’t been able to find out who the artist is – clues may lie in the top line of ‘text’ in the upper left corner but I can not figure out what it says.
below: Some wheatpaste in various conditions including a very torn and peeling Ironmould black and white drawing and a red capped Amar Garpa. Unsigned, and therefore unknown monkey, dog, little kid, and man with red beard and glasses.
below: The square in the top right corner reads, “The purpose of this festival is to use art as the attraction of the Qr code, generally used in transactions involving money, purchasing, and capitalism.” (last word in red). Then it is repeated in Spanish (where it might make more sense). “…. es utilizar el arte como atractivo del codico QR, en general utilizado en transacciones implicando dinero, compras, y el captilalism’.
below: Near rue Liban, Bar Populaire with a wall of graffiti.
below: In a circle of knives and with a Medusa head of snakes,
below: Another Laszlo piece – Stern looking portrait of Wednesday Addams from the “Addams Family” TV series.
below: A column of paper pieces
below: The top two, both on pages of old books. Top – a heart with “Aimez-sous Bordel” with a multicoloured figure by Corine Forest. On the bottom, drawings by Sulfid
below: More Corine Forest – this time a bird on a page of of music along with a little monster character by Axo. Mam’zelle Nitouche is the music that was chosen (or happened upon?). This is a vaudeville-opérette in three acts composed by in 1883 Hervé (aka Louis-Auguste Florimond Ronger (1825-1892)).
On the bottom – a dove in a heart shape full of white cursive love. “Go Love Anybody Anywhere Anytime”. A little saccharine but sort of sweet.
below: One more Corine Forest wheatpaste – a winged horse among the moon and stars.
St. Petersburg is home to a growing number of murals. There are maps online that help you find the murals but if you walk along Central Avenue and explore the streets and alleys close by, you will encounter most of them.
below: There’s a short alley behind the north side of Central Ave that is home to quite a few street art pieces. This is the view westward from 6th St. North (toward 7th St N)
below: This is the mural at the east end of the alley. This portrait among the fishes and mermaids was painted by Derek Donnelly
The Cafe Cinema Courtyard starts as a small alley beside the Cafe Cinema off Rosenthaler Strasse close to the Hackescher Market. It is almost completely covered with street art of all kinds – painted murals, stickers, paste ups and more.
below: Flower Power, straight from the 1960’s, by Joiny
below: Lisanne, Dagmar and Donna were here as were Berlyn and Yasmyn. Russian matryoshka dolls and Fabrege eggs watch the boxing match between facebooks and instagram. The Russian themed stencil is the work of ost.up.berlin
below: Ann Franke by Jimmy C (aka James Cochrane)
below: by Garavato, a Colombian street artist, painted in 2016
below: A yellow creature by Peng. In the background is a circle with a silhouette of Charlie Brown and Snoopy sitting on the roof of the dog house, by Osch aka Otto Schade.
Carrer de Sevilla is a short street in the Russafa district of Valencia. On the exterior walls of 24 Carrer de Sevilla, an empty building, there is a selection of interesting street art.
below: Across the top of the pasteup on the left it says, “hasta el infinito y mas alla” which equals “to infinite and beyond” – this tribute to David Bowie is by Disneylexya (more below). The black and white woman with 4 eyes is by CKTN aka Chikitin Valencia
below: Detail of the David Bowie tribute pasteup
below: Another 4 eyed woman by CKTN
below: This mural is the work of Vynz + Hyuro. It has been defaced/censored, in the original, the woman on the left is naked. Did someone object to the nudity?
below: Intricately drawn flowers by Lily Mixe .... or is the one on the right a bug?
