Rebecca Budd from CHASING ART has sent us a James Knight mural.
Its official title is Shear, & you can find it at 302 West 2nd Street, Vancouver, B.C.
Rebecca has also sent us something Alfred Stieglitz once said. Here is part of it:
“Art cannot be contained behind the walls of stately palaces, posh galleries or antiquated museums. Art is not the sole domain of private collectors.”
You can read all of the Alfred Stieglitz Quote

Thank you, Resa, for creating a place where we can share the amazing world of street art. You have opened my eyes to a new understanding and a fresh perspective on this art form! And speaking of quotes, here is one that you will appreciate!
“Speak softly, but carry a big can of paint.” Banksy, Wall and Piece
I look forward to every one of your posts!!
Good find, Rebecca.
Thank you!! I’m looking at the world in a different way these days. Taking my camera with me everywhere I go! Always an adventure waiting for us to arrive…
There are many hidden gems in front of us every day!
@ Frank – Yes, there are many gems, & I am thrilled Rebecca has shared one with us!
Lol… Love the quote!
Rebecca, Thank you so very much for sending us this wonderful mural. It is a real joy for me to see what is going on with street art in other parts of Canada & around the globe. I am honored that you enjoy the posts & hope you will find another mural to send us one day.
Also, I admire your thorough research. You do an amazing job on both of your blogs, and have shared that ability here with us as well.
Cheers to you! xo
You have encouraged me, Resa to “carry a camera.” I will let others carry the paint can. Thank you again for featuring James Knight’s mural on your blog. He is truly amazing.
OK, this is my all time favorite!!! It’s so very beautiful and it does represents the ethnic diversity of Vancouver area, people of all colors sharing the same wall as we should share everything else too equally in real life. Great message! Thanks for sharing this master piece! xoxo
I love this masterpiece as well.It does hold fabulous message, and It’s so great that Rebecca has shared it with us! Very insightful comment, Eva! xoxo
Rebecca did well, Resa, to find such a fascinating art piece. I also have you to thank for introducing me to ‘wall/street art’. I now see it almost everywhere I go!
Here’s hoping all is well with you.. xoxoxo
She sure did do well!
Carolyn, I have seen many photos of street art from cities in Australia & it is very impressive. xoxoxo
This is true, Resa; even in the regional areas (which is where I now live) there are some wonderful examples. I now have a smart phone (which I love and wonder how I did without) so taking images is now more a possibility. If I’m inspired to, I’ll take a few snaps and send them to you… xoxoxo
Yay!!!! Yehaw! Art from Australia! xoxoxo
Have smart phone will travel… 😀
I love it, it’s so surreal.
Agree! It’s a special one!
I agree! It’s a very special piece.
How to put into words the emotions this post wrought? Resa, powerful post and the art is absolutely something we ALL need to absorb. Thank you, dear friend, for caring passionately for the art that you do and bringing it here. ALL of us need to remember the Native American. ❤
❤ It's a fabulous mural, and speaks loudly. I'm so glad you came to see it! Much love to you! _Resa
❤ (((HUGS))) ❤
Resa / Rebecca: The art and the photos are outstanding. I like how the window was not an obstacle to the art but became part of the art. Top it off with Stieglitz and Banksy quotations and you have the perfect post. Thanks.
We make a great team!!! Thank you, Dave!
What a great mural! The next time I am on the mainland (have to take a ferry to get to Vancouver from where I am) then I will take a look 🙂 Thumbs up to Rebecca and Resa – you both are such beautiful souls! ❤
Art has brought all of us together, and what a great time we’re having! 🙂 ❤
