Street Art Poetry: Resa and I – Collaboration

This is the 3rd Street Art Poetry door Charlie and I have done together, even though we live 2,520 miles away from each other, and have only met in the blogosphere. MAKE ART NOT WAR
I’ll be closing comments, so head to Charlie’s blog to see the entire presentation & comment.

Charlie Zero The Poet

Our 3rd collaboration in ‘Street art poetry’.

Resa’s interpretation of my words ‘Mermaid’.
The color palette and the eye brings out the beauty in a mermaid.
She gives life to the painting and the words speak for themselves.

The eye of the mermaid sees beyond truth and love.

Resa is a rock star and a talented and wonderful human to us all here on WordPress. Her contribution to the arts is phenomenal. 

Without further ado our collaboration! Resa is the best and she really did such a beautiful job.

My vinyl eyes
painted
hot orgasm.
The eerie rose
spilled cryptic commas.

I noticed the mermaid is forming a heart around the words.

The Beautiful Mermaid feeling some sun. 🙂

Miss Mermaid is now in the shade staring right at you to read the poem.

Beautiful colors on this door. The colors blossom brightly. 🙂

Resa is an incredible photographer.

Waterford Walls 2019

You must check out this spectacular post from Inese!!!!! Thank you Waterford Walls!!! AND thank you, Inese!

 

Making memories

I was out of town during the Waterford Walls festival this August, and only recently took some photographs, probably covering only a half of the walls. Here is a link to the previous Waterford Walls blog posts if you need it for a reference. Please visit the artists websites. All the links in this blog open on separate pages and your reading won’t be interrupted.

Yasja’sNorthern lights-inspired work wasn’t included in the festival map, but I knew it was a recent work. I would have noticed if it has been there before. Yasja is a brilliant artist from Amsterdam and I choose her work for my opening picture.

I walk wall to wall, and it takes me about two hours to see all these wonderful murals.

Niamh Curry  grew up in Clonmel, Ireland. She is a self-taught artist, and her works are recognizable for their bright colors and…

The White Squirrels

There are white squirrels in Trinity – Bellwoods Park.

Apparently they are not a breed, but more like albino squirrels.

They have created more white squirrels.

Toronto is so proud of these rare beauties …

That we have named a street after them.

I have not seen one, but I don’t have hours to sit quietly, in a Squirrel Zen State, with a bag of peanuts. Although, it’s on my “To do list”.

Sath – Renaissance via Art

First things, first! Congratulations to Sath & Johanna!

They have created the most beautiful 👼 Lila 👼!

I’ve always believed Sath would be an amazing father. Much of his art is for kids & he teaches them through interactive art experience.

Two recent pieces Sath has done are collaborations with SIK. Above is Crow-n. I absolutely adore it. Below is a 21 second video of a mural with a big message about “the orangutans, the palm oil industry and the deforestation”

Check out the details of the mural from Sath & Sik!

“about one of the main causes of climate change. The logging and burning of forests by the timber industry, as well as by obtaining soil for agriculture and livestock are razing the lung of the planet and the species that live there.”

Above is ZoOrquesta Decoración” The slide show above is is filled with animal instruments Sath did for a Music School. La Escuela de Música local del @ajsonservera.

Dalmatian 103

Work done live during the last Nit de l’Art de Son Servera. As always, a real pleasure to paint in a place as magical as the Església Nova and see so many known people.”

What a fab frog! An animal may not be able to change its spots, but Sath can.

“I present to you Toni Serra, the student of Aproscom chosen through a draw to be the image of the 4th edition of the @proyecto.somriu.” SOM – RIU is a participatory mural project to aid people with intellectual disabilities.  Learn more! Visit a previous GLaM post: SOM – RIU.

My sincerest Thank You’s to Sath, for allowing me the privilege of of continuing to cover his career, in the world of art and humanities. Also, gratitudes to Johanna! Her ongoing work for our planet began with Greepeace, & now with an NGO called Compassion in World Farming. They are truly a Renaissance Couple! – Resa

Below is an interview with Sath. He’s that uber happy, proud daddy you see above.

Cutest Raccoon Ever

OMG! I stumbled upon an entertainment plaza made entirely out of shipping containers.

There’s shops for everything, small kiosks, restaurants and a beer hall+, park areas and more. The place has electricity and all the amenities.

There is art on everything! This project is still not finished.

Love this raccoon. Apparently, Toronto is the world’s Raccoon Capital!

Hi everyone. I’m sorry to interrupt The Delta Pearl.  My steampunk riverboat serial will be back next weekend.

Today I’m doing a very special post. I’ve finally “bookized” the third novel in my Roaring Twenties series about Pip.  I’ve brought a bunch of friends for this shindig on a magical 1920s trolley.  First let me tell you a little about this novel. 

When my character, Paisley Idelle Peabody (better known as Pip) came along, I started writing a type of fiction that I never expected.  Pip is a flapper. Her stories took me…

On Murals of Belfast

Thank you to Frank, for sharing these murals from Belfast! I’ll be closing comments shortly, so head over to his blog with your thoughts!

A Frank Angle

While cruising the British Isles in 2017, Belfast fascinated me. In my past post about Belfast, I opened the post with the following: Belfast, Northern Ireland is beautiful, interesting, and gut-wrenching – and we were only there for a part of one day. On one end is the natural beauty, architecture, vibrancy, and history – and the other end The Troubles – what the locals call the Northern Ireland Conflict (1968-1998).

Belfast, Northern Ireland has a history of conflict – especially in the past one hundred years. Many of us remember the conflict from fierce conflict that raged their land from the 1960s well into the 1990s – a conflict centered around politics and religion. Today, Belfast is a beautiful city. Yet, visitors who have a sense of history about The Troubles carry a strange and troubling feeling during their entire stay.

The Peace Wall that separates sectors of…
