Fake Street Art

I saw a sliver of this eye from a half block away. It was in a side lane, a perfect place for street art.

I hate jay-walking so I went 1 block back to the street light. I arrived at the art ‘s lane only to find a locked gate; behind parking for 2.

1/2 a block away I found a semi blocked off path/slot between 2 buildings.

50ft. later I was in a dead end lane, but it lead to the eye.

The Eye lead to the cheat – Valentino

Broken hearted, yet intrigued … why is the art so catchy, yet inaccessible?

A person like me might do what I did to get to see the art, only to realize it is a Valentino ad.

Was I baited?

Wounded Angel

I went out to find a graffiti Lion’s head. I found it, and more.

I found this angel, and I adore it.

The Lion’s head is FANTASTIC… so, I’m hoarding it for a bit.

I spotted this angel from about 1 block away. It was just a peachy blob, but it was a peachy blob that wasn’t there a few weeks ago.

Further inspection was rewarding. However, research has informed me that this is an AD for Sony Music, for a particular song/album they are pushing. Some ads do use street art style, but we know it is an ad. This piece is masquerading as street art, and I am offended.
