However, the MIXER, pictured above, needs sound tracks before he can mix tracks. So wrap around to the opposite end wall of the building where THE SINGER lays down her tracks.

  1. This set is my favourite so far, and the attention to detail is precision art at its finest, I have never seen such an awesome masterpiece that is graffiti 🙂 I am truly amazed and astonished by the absolute quality of this artist 🙂

    1. It is easy to see why Charlie Johnson won “Mural of the Year” in 2004 for this fabulous work of art.
      He is one of may fave Mural Artists in Winnipeg.
      Winnipeg is a Canadian mid-west city having a hard time. The weather is harsh, the native situation is harsh, the roads are turning into rubble, but the murals are beautiful.
      It is a beautiful thing to see how proud everyone is of the murals, and how they bring the city into community! 🙂 🙂 ❤

      1. I am surprised that they thrive in such harsh conditions, especially when one thinks of the very low temperatures but what a feast of colour and imagination, I really admire those artists for the awesomeness of their artistry 🙂

        It must be brilliant to see them in person 🙂
