Jimi & Jimmy

I have only posted one other piece of what looks like street art, but it’s actually advertising something.

Obviously this mural is advertising Jimmy’s Coffee. Jimmy’s Coffee is a local Toronto business that began in 2009. It has several outlets now.

It’s a well done black and white mural, with the coffee cups in bright yellow. I am presenting the mural both as is, and through different filters.

I like the all black and white best.

The portraiture looks fab to me!

Jimi Hendrix & Jimmy Page …. 2 fantastic guitar players!

There are only 3 other indoor murals in my collection. Oddly enough they are portraits of famous people. They decorate a pool hall in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

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.

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!

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?

Turquoise Hair w/ Red Lips & Eyes

Well, my lips are not rose red,

…but my eyes are. It’s because of my old laptop. I’ll be getting a new one tomorrow.

Monday is a holiday. I’ll be setting things up, so if I encounter certain irritations, I’ll have to deal with them on Tuesday.

So, not sure when I’ll return after tonight, but it would be fab to have turquoise hair.
