The Snail Lady

It’s a whole new appreciation for snails!

I would NEVER eat one.

Although they seem to make cute pets.

They are possibly good for your skin, but I haven’t googled that.

Eye had an epic failure trying to make a Snail Lady of my own.

Still, Eye got to try 3 new colours in a new brand of water colour pencils. What was Eye thinking? A Snail Lady with blue eyes?

Street art poetry: Collaboration by Resa and i

This is Charlie Zero’s & my second Street Art Poetry collaboration. We want it to become a movement. There will be a third!

Charlie Zero The Poet

Resa Mcconaghy and I collaborated on ‘street art poetry’.
Her interpretation of my words is an 80’s futurism vibe,
blending psychedelic trance & sci-fi spectrum kaleidoscope colors.

She is a rock star and a brilliant painter/artist/poet/ designer/
& photographer. Much praise to her incredible work and contribution
to the arts and community. 🙂

Without further ado here’s a poem and photography of amazing art.

Unzip the clock –
Inside
origins pulsate.
Every color hatches
a rotten piano.

The Flowers blend in with the art.
Resa, you captured this shot so well. I love it. 🙂

This photo shot is perfect!

All the colors and the words awake the enigma eye.

The hot pink, black, green, & white looks so hypnotizing and spectacular.

The eye is unzipping the clock.

The Monarch Butterfly observing and understanding the poem. 🙂

4 Gi Metallicat

There was a Metallicat a few blocks from me, but it got painted over.

It was very exciting to find a new 4 Gi Metallicat in Kensington Market.

It’s the year of the butterflies out in the alleys. On my street art safari, I also found birds and faces, but no cats, except for Metallicat.

Maybe next year will be a good street art cat year.

You’ve Got To Run (Spirit Of The Wind) w/ Sundance Song

A new Indigenous inspired mural, by Philip Cote, graces my hood; the Village of Roncesvalles.

A new to me song, by Buffy Saint Marie & throat singer Tanya Tagaq, graces my spirit. You Got To Run (Spirit Of The Wind) is the most powerful song I’ve ever heard.

I’M BLOWN AWAY

You could listen while perusing the rest of the mural, but I doubt you will be able to take your focus off of the intense performances.

Here are some of the murals hi-lights.

Philip Cote says about the mural “I am here doing a Sundance song to honour the ancestors and recognize where I come from”

Roncesvalles was originally settled by Colonel Walter O’Hara in 1850. O’Hara (Irish), a soldier in the British army was captured by the French in the Roncesvalles Gorge in Spain; hence the name Roncesvalles.

The Artist: Philip Cote

Buffy, a multi-media artist, rose to prominence  in the late  60’s, with the  folk  music  movement.  However, once she began using her voice to support native causes, her songs were  censored in  the USA, and yanked from playlists.

 Someone said (paraphrasing) It’s amazing how afraid powerful men in suits are, of a girl with a guitar.

🎨 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.
