Three Sides of India

It’s on 3 sides of a garage.

I start with the face, because I adore it.

Love the reflection!

 Below is actually the first side I saw, as I walked up the alley.

I could have breached the fence, but it wasn’t necessary.

The face and Taj Mahal were on the garage door end. There was a car parked, and I couldn’t get in between.

However, I got this wonderful Taj Mahal reflection in the car.

You can see a wisp of the girl’s head scarf on the left.

The third side is gorgeous.

A Mosaics Moment

Mosaics are art. I found these outside, so they qualify as Street Art.

This one was on busy downtown street.

The next one is old, in rough shape and found in an alley. Broken mirror pieces are part of the mosaic. That is me in the shatter!

The artist’s name in mosaic form?

No name on this one, just a piece of gum.

OMG! This just appeared 4 blocks up the street from me.

After the fence is an indent, which houses the garage doors.

I’m sure Dudeman has painted the skulls and daisy-like flowers, and Bacon has painted the rose, peony and peacock feather. However, Dudeman may have painted this diaphanous beauty.

The inspiration for most of the title for this post is a very wee book I own. It was hand- written by a man to his wife in 1913. Visit The Language Of Flowers by clicking on this sentence, or on the cover of the book.

The page is dedicated to Paul Militaru If you have ever visited his photo blog, you know why.

Thank you to Dudeman & Bacon!

I managed to take the entire mural from across the street. I left the photo file large, so if you click on, it blows up beautifully.

SATH – Visual Communicator

On POLITICS

Artist: Sath

“The wall with the judge was painted in the village of Son Servera, and it talks about the freedom of speech. A Spanish rapper was condemned to jail just for the lyrics of his songs… ridiculous.”

Artist: Sath

The wall “Congreso De Los Imputados” is about politics.

Artist: Sath

“At the entrance of the Spanish parliament (congreso de los diputados): I changed the word diputados for imputados, (that means imputed). There are 2 lions, so I painted 1 of them (changing the ball for a prisoner ball), to criticize the government and the corruption.”

Artist: Sath

On SOCIAL ISSUES

Artist: Sath

“I also attached the image of the last wall with my project “Som-Riu”. This week I’m gonna start another “Som-Riu” project in another village.”

SOM – RIU is a participatory mural project to aid people with intellectual disabilities. Learn more! Visit a previous GLaM post: SOM – RIU. 

With HUMOR

Artist: Sath

Sath’s sense of humor is precious, whatever he decides to say with it.

“By the way, this wall painting is the new Spanish gastrobar Broken Eggs by the Galician Chef Jacobo Astray, in Ekkamai. Great selection of wines, craft beers, amazing food and service. All for affordable prices! Buen provecho!”

The CANVAS below is titled: UNI-CORN

Artist: Sath

With  LIVE PAINTING

Artist: Sath

For the live painting shows, I paint in front of the public during music festivals. They can get tickets to win the painting with a raffle at the end”.

Sath paints B.B.King

I asked Sath about the above shot.

 “The organization in that case was called “renou col-lectiu” that in Catalan language means “collective noise”.

Sath hails from Mallorca (Spain). He uses spray & acrylic paint to create colorful pieces, slightly surreal.  He uses figurative elements, & impossible situations or actions, but he never neglects the message.

Sath sent me a FaceBook link to a short sweet video of himself painting the wall below. I can’t seem to embed the video. It’s not on YouTube, but if you click on the pic below, it will take you to the video. If you do not have a FB account (like me) just click on “Not Now”. You will be able to view it!
