Jazzical ?

These dancers literally mesmerized me.

Each of the 3 speak with their bodies.

Perhaps they are recreating the flower?

There’s a lot of art here. I did a pano. To the left you see some other art. It’s almost a half block of paintings up to this piece.

On the right, you see a lot of art, and you can see an underpass. The art goes all the way to the other end of the underpass. This is the best, but there are some other pretty great pieces.

The Harvester

I never know where I’m going, ’til I get there.

I never know if I’m going ’til I’m gone.

Walked into an alley in Chinatown

…and found

…this beauty!

A few years old, and a bit chipped up, she is nonetheless a beacon amid the hoi polloi of alley art.

The Artist:

 

Van Gogh

This portrait of Van Gogh is stationed across the street from the AGO. I immediately thought of Rebecca Budd – Lady Budd.

EEK! It kept staring at me, following me. I walked back and forth, thinking the head was being automatically turned. NOT!!!

Check it out! The video is only 18 seconds.

I also shot stills. I thought Rebecca will love this! She is such an arts aficionado, and I mean ALL arts and artists.

Then I thought of Marina from Art Towards a Happy Day, who is an artist, musician and does wonderful posts about classic artists.

Then serendipity happened! Rebecca interviewed Marina about art in a podcast on Tea Toast and Trivia, on July 19. I found Van Gogh on July 19.

I know you’ll love the podcast. Click on the pic of VG above, and go there!

I started at the other side in the 20 second video below.

Fascinated, I went up close.

Turns out the part of the face that follows is an indented sculpture, with some paint on it.

This is the only shot I have of this size close up, in an attempt to show you what I mean of an innie sculpture. LOL, I accidentally cut off most of VG’s left ear. Honest, I did not crop!

B O N U S  ST R E E T  A R T

On my way home yesterday, from another successful Street Art adventure, I looked down at the sidewalk, and there was a spirit of Hera. I think it looks like Hera! Hera is Marina’s sweet puppy dog.

What A Doll!

During a 3 hour drive to get our mail, we cut through Chinatown.

The corner of my right eye caught the splash of colour down a side street.

I knew it was a face, somehow.

There was no time to stop, but I knew I would return!

What a doll!

… and the sweet yellow bird….

The Artist(s)

Squirrel & Girl

This sweet squirrel was at the top of an alley branching off another alley.

What side of the fence is he/she on?

Anyway, it made the alley look promising.

NOT!

The alley deteriorated into trash and throw ups on all the garage doors.

However I found a face I like. Looks like it’s been there a quite few years.

Frank Zappa

I found Frank Zappa Today!

I adore the characterization.

The trees and ivy obscured the art and its message.

It says: Stupidity Has A Certain Charm

Ignorance Does Not

I had to take this from an angle. The angle was in the first lane of west bound traffic in the road. I waited until the light was red both ways , then made my moves. Most excitement I’ve had in 2 years!

As a Veggie, I chose this song, my fave vegetable song, ever!
