Street Art Speaks

I was tingling with joy when I found this exquisite piece.

I couldn’t take enough pics.

Then, at home, when I looked at the pics I’d uploaded I saw

… a message on the alley curb below it.

Did the artist of this face put it there, or was it already there?

It doesn’t matter who put it there. I bring you this message, now.

“87 elephants Found in Botswana – DEAD – 1 of the Last Safe Havens 4 species.”

Pics taken by Resa – October 29, 2018

Toronto, Canada

The Artist:

Many of us know the elephants are in trouble.

Taking pics of faces from different angles, is interesting.

    1. I was thrilled to find this in an alley of painted garage doors. There was one other wall piece, but this one caught my breath. The style is very modern and very street. The message is a bonus. Much of the art is pretty to look at, but messages are hard come by these days.

    1. If it’s not too, shocking, just leave your finger in the socket. There’s nothing like a good tingle! Might as well get your money’s worth out of the utility company! 😉 xoxoxo ❤

  1. A great image, Resa, very entrancing!
    The ‘elephant message’ took my interest. On googling I found an article relating to this.
    “The government disarmed its anti-poaching units in May – a month after President Mokgweetsi Masisi was sworn into office. A senior official in the president’s office, Carter Morupisi, told journalists in Botswana at the time that the “government has decided to withdraw military weapons and equipment from the Department of Wildlife and National Parks”, but he did not explain why. Botswana’s 2018 Wildlife Aerial Survey is only half-way through and conservationists fear the final figure of poached elephants will be a lot higher.”
    Profit and greed; an ugly part of human nature!

    1. Yes, profit and greed can turn humans into earthbound demons, and lesser negatives in between.
      Poor elephants, I’m sure they and all animals are at our mercy, or non-mercy.
      I need to think more about this. I really feel I need to ask a CC question.
      Yet, someone made very beautiful art, over words that are very ugly.

    Very nice photos, Resa! So many species are in trouble, it is a sad state of the human species….we are great at destroying things and destroying living-wonders too.

Speak your art mind!
