Mini-Mural Destroyed in 5 Days

BEFORE

AFTER

I watched the artist paint this mini-mural on a corrugated roll-up door, over a 4 day period.

He was older, not one of the younger artists that I am familiar with.

The butterflies were my faves.

However, I adored all of it.

Flowers, hummingbirds and all round beauty were 1 block away for me to enjoy everyday.

I took pics of it 2 days after it was finished.

4 days after that, I took my niece to see it. It had been destroyed.

Making memories

Waterford Walls

Once again the streets of Waterford became an art gallery as the Waterford Walls festival brought in another 48 works that transformed the look of the city. I had a few days to catch a glimpse of some artists, and enjoyed the completed work when I returned from my trip.

Youri Cansell, aka Mantra (France), is famous for his nature-themed works, but for this festival he painted an image of street artist. What a thoughtful gift! I hope it has a long life – it is already loved here. You see a gentleman in my picture enjoy mimicking the painted artist. The work is sponsored by Ambassador of France in Ireland.

Here are some links to my previous Waterford Walls posts : 2015, 2016, 2017. Ah, and some more 🙂 Now I will take you around our ‘art gallery’.

Marty McFly Disappearing Photo

It’s a Back To The Future thing.

This art appeared on a wall on Queen St. W. just before the parking lot beside it was turfed to build a tall building.

As Marty McFly’s pics disappeared because time erased them. Elicser’s art disappeared, as the building beside this wall went up.

I don’t know if that message is what Elicser had intended. It’s what I saw.

Iona, Tona, Jona… as:

Pinocchio-ettes

So, I found this 30 story tall mural, with Pinocchio-ettes on it.

This is the best head on I could do with my IPhone. It’s taken from across the street.

Another tall shot, different angle. See how tiny the people in the street are?

I’m starting at the top, and working my way down from the Pinocchio-ette angel.

The angel was spotted from the park. I was about 2 blocks away.

It kept getting better, as I closed in.

As I’m posting this I’m thinking; 🎵🎶In A Gadda Da Vida🎵🎶.

Chicks, Beers & Cheers

Aquileana commented how cute the chicks toasting with beers on “More Paint” post are, and she’s right! They are adorable.

I made the mistake of going on a Sunday. The alley was filled with tourists, all taking pictures. 

I had a hard time focusing on my shots, especially waiting for no one to be walking by.

Uber has done a piece promoting St. John, New Brunswick, Canada. It is a wonderful Canadian city on the Atlantic coast.

Uber 5000’s chicks & other animated characters are very popular there & here.

You can see there is an entirely different Uber chicks mural around the corner. That’s still coming, a few posts from now.

Cheers to Aquileana, and all!
