Birdo Birds

Obviously I was thrilled to find this!

Fresh paint by Birdo, a fave of mine, and one of the very first street artists I ever met.

Timothy Price is the only person I know who has a parrot…2 parrots I believe.

How could I not think of him when I discovered this?

Who is this beauty?

By the same artist who did the Sophia Loren painting several posts ago,

I find this to be a very alluring painting.

Perhaps it’s an image from an Italian film?

Or, is it just made up?

Anyway, I was and still am, drawn in.

Gotta get that reflection in the car. Why else do cars park in front of art?

Sorry, could stop shooting this. I didn’t want to leave.

The Artist:

Steve McQueen – Bullitt

Okay, I’ve always had  crush on Steve McQueen.

I cut this artist some slack, as he painted this on seriously rough stucco wall. Below is the poster the painting is a rendition of. There are many Bullitt posters, but I didn’t see the exact one the artist painted.

You can buy various size repros of the poster, starting at $25.00. However, I saw an original (1968 – mint condition) theatre size poster for sale in the U.K. £4,500.00.

MANY say the car chase in Bullitt is the greatest car chase ever filmed. I agree. It’s real. No CGI! Steve McQueen was credited with the driving during the chase sequence. Actually it was shared with Bud Ekins, one of Hollywood’s best stunt drivers.

The chase kicks in at 3 minutes, but dial it back to the beginning for the full effect of this 10 minute masterpiece.

In 2020, the green Mustang sold at auction for 3.4 million dollars.

Beauty in Blue

I quite like this blue face. 

I found it in a laneway that had been converted into a restaurant’s patio.

The artist: One of those names below. It is from a long wall, and many artists painted on it.

Apologies for certain ill alignments. This art was small and right off the sidewalk.

The Gen Z Collective

Look who I found on a wall!

It’s Greta Thunberg, the most famous Gen Z person in the world. In the upper left is the word CURAE. It is Latin for “Take Care”.

Gen Z has a lot to say, and my long time friend, Elizabeth Gracen is providing them a platform to say it all.

Elizabeth, founder of Flapper Films and Flapper Press says in her introduction to the project, “I would create a platform so that they could upload their own videos to the project. The films would stream on Instagram and a YouTube Channel for those little screens they are all obsessed with.”

Is there a Gen Z  person in your family, who has something to say? Then check out The website !

You’ll be hearing more about Flapper Press  On both GLAM and Art Gowns in the future. My next Art Gown will be dedicated to Elizabeth, and I am very excited!

Dream

Found in a tiny children’s park.

Me, I’m not a kid, but I am dreaming of some sun, so I can shoot the new Art Gown!

What are you dreaming about?
