I love these. As you said, so free and alive…all movement and fabulous.
It was an exciting find!
Simply outstanding, dear Resa… . I hope you have a great week ahead. 🙂
All the best to you!, Aquileana 😀
It really is an outstanding piece! 🙂 Amazing to find such great art in the street!
OMG!!! You have a wonderful week, too!
Sketchy and wonderful! wow!
I love street art! You never know what you’ll find! 🙂
Oh yes that is so true. You capture some wonderful art. 💟
Wonderful, really fascinating – are so impressed how you finds all these wonders – great work you do… 🙂
Oh, my dear LDN, I thank you very much. You, more than anyone… except Sherrie 🙂 … knows how dedicated I have been since I found street art & murals. I have now posted 800 works of art, and with a new painting season on the horizon, we are sure to see a lot more. ❤
The child appears to have a nimbus. Maybe the artist is playing with the ikonography of Christian art here, using the form of a winged altar triptych and alluding to the holy family? In any case, the artistic quality of this piece is outstanding. It should be rescued and brought to a museum.
I agree, this is a very special piece, and it’s in the street facing weather, taggers & eventual ruin. Such is the fame & fate of all street art. Breaks my heart. Yet, had this artist not worked his or her magic on a power box, I would be all the less enriched.
Even the colors: the woman has blue and red, traditional colors in mediaval pictures of Mary. Might be a coincidence, but maybe the artist was really playing with this type of iconography.
I tend to agree with your evaluation of this piece of art.
I must say, I truly value your educated & very informed opinion of this work. I can’t thank you enough for your wonderful comment!
These are amazing Resa.
Agree! It’s a small piece, but the thrill of sharing this was big.
