Part 1 of the Maneli Imports mural.
Find it on Dovercourt on the side of the building.
It’s a masterpiece!
And it’s massive!
Double owl reflection.
Next post I’ll start on the Blue Frog & work to the center.

I luv it! What a magnificent mural. The owl and the man, just Wow!
I agree! It is quite the wonderful mural!
I love the reflection in the car’s windscreen and very ‘clean’ duco, Resa; well done. Fantastic imaginations have these artists; and yes, it looks massive… 🙂
The artists’ imaginations are wonderful! 🙂 Sometimes reflections are more fun that the real deal. 😉
Um… what does duco mean?
I’m so sorry, Resa, I thought ‘duco’ was known internationally. On investigation I’ve learned it is an Aussie term meaning the lacquer, or ‘car paint’. Hahaa, reminds me of the word ‘chook’! 😀
Okay… what the … does “chook” mean? LOL!! xoxo
Oh no, Resa….! 😀
It is another Aussie term (nickname) for Chicken. LOL… I thought you knew this one… honest.. 😳
Hahaha! Seems I’m learning!
I know!! I wish you could have been with me when I found it! It was exhilarating! ⭐ ❤ ⭐
I would have loved to be there with you! I can only imagine the joy of discovery!
Awesome! These murals always leave me in awe. One of these days, I’m going to try to take some spray cans and see what I can do. “shock”
Not shocked!! Bet you come up with something neat! I have a wall in my home I have been threatening to paint. I’m thinking it will happen when my next assignment is completed. After that is a success (I hope) I will do a door at the outside of my property.
I’ll keep my fingers crossed that you post those pictures, Resa. 😀
Very nice mural and photography!
TY, Maria…. esp. about the photography. I do my best, but I don’t really know what I’m doing!
What a fantastic mural, many wonderful elements in the composition! Owls are my favorite birds and I have never seen a red one, so this is really awesome find Resa!
OMG! Do you have an owl shoe?
It truly is a great find!
NO, and that’s a shame, I always thought about it but it never realized on the paper, I might do it one day! xoxo
Oh my, this is one of those murals I really wish I could see with my own eyes, touch and experience! But thanks to you, at least I can do it vicariously!
You are very welcome! I wish you …everyone could see it for real! I had to go out of my way, a lot, to find this beauty.
Really amazing, and I’m so glad you like them!
The most original graffiti art I have ever seen. wow!
You captured this photography so well. 🙂
Oh, Charlie, thank you for the photography – presentation compliment! 😀
It is an almost overwhelming stunner when you actually stand in front of it and look.
Interesting how many people walk by without noticing it.
Well, its really good and damn! I wish more creative outside artist do something like this here in L.A.
I’m shocked. L.A.seems so creative arc ahead, esp. in music. I have photo’d so much street art, I’m about 400 posts behind. Then I find new fresh pieces. Which reminds me…. I saw the most inspiring Hands… mural. Must get back to the east end.
L.A. is creative alright in the sense that L.A. “artist”, create the same generic art I see imitating other artist. I’m picky when it comes to art. I prefer the real deal in art. For example H.R. Giger/ Salvador Dali/ etc…Now that’s art in the face. 🙂
True! Only a bit familiar w/ Giger, but a huge Dali fan. It’s in my face & sticks…like the melting clocks.
Do you know Alex Coleville’s http://www.alexcolville.ca/gallery/alex_colville_1954_horse_and_train/ Horse &Train? Haunts the ghosts out of me!
I have moved the thread to the bottom.as it got too long & skinny
Yes, I agree. I’m looking at his gallery art. Man, his art is considered to me as super-hyper-realism. It’s so good and original. 🙂
Magnificent! I love how accessible street art is to everyone. And these images make my imagination joyful with ideas.
Accessibility is the main thing. There are many people who may never go to a gallery, or never be exposed to original art. Now, its all around them. Same for the artists. Many have been discovered due to their work in the streets.
I can also say, if an artist doesn’t have to sell the art, they have free range of imagination.
It is infinitely hard to make money as an artist. So many in the world would be artists if they could support themselves.
@ Charlie Zero,
The comments got long & skinny, so I am threading half here.

Cool… so real it’s more than real. This 1 painting is that for me.
I’m sending you more hearts to you. 🙂 ❤ ❤ ❤ 🙂
