Intermissions

I find this piece beyond interesting. I found it in an alley, twice.

The first time was on May 6, 2020. There were no leaves on the trees, it was sunny and the bare branches’ shadows made a veil on her face.

The next time was June 8, 2020. The leaves had grown in on the trees, and the sun was in a different position. The shadows made a lacy frame.

Found this when I went to look for a different piece.

The piece I was looking for had been fouled with urine & the word pee written all over it.

As you can see, I was still rewarded for my efforts.

However, I had to work around a parked car.

I could not get a full straight on shot.

Still, worked the 2 spots I was given.

Random Faces

These are some random faces I really like.

The sun can mess up the shot, or have an interesting effect.

The next pic is sent to us from Alex Morris.

Subism Collective (UK) – This huge mural was painted in 2011 in collaboration with Red Bull by four artists (Deus, N4t4, Philth and Ventsa) from the Derby-based digital creative agency “Subism”. This earth, wind, fire, and water-themed illustration is known as a landmark in the Northern Quarter!

It’s a fabulous mural from Manchester, U.K. Thank you, Alex!

A Touch of Classic

It never ceases to amaze me that garbage bins are proudly displayed in front of fabulous street art.

It’s enough that the artists must work around poles, pipes and wires.

Another oddity is planting a bank of trees in front. I love trees, they are nature’s art, so why bother with the painting, then?

I expect to see a parking infraction sign on it, soon.

Quite the beauty!

🎨 Frida Kahlo 🎨

This is the second Frida Kahlo piece I’ve found.

I met the artist, Anya, while traversing alleys and parking lots. OMG! She was so neat. She spent time chit-chatting with me.

She said the art would be done by Thursday end. She had another art engagement on Friday. I didn’t think Anya & MSKA, who was assisting with B.G., would make the date. Wednesday rained all day.

She showed me the self portrait she was basing this mural on.

LOVE the hand/glove earrings!!!

I went back Sunday. It’s not quite finished, but I shot it anyway. I don’t know when I’ll get back there.

I adore the way she has Frida emerging out of the wings of a Monarch. When I returned, dumpsters had been moved in.

I shoot them as I get them.
