Wall Art

 
Posted by Picasa


This is what the wall next door to the Engine Room (which I posted a picture of yesterday) looks like.

Well, well, a quite interesting wall.

I like it, but I wonder what the owners of the building think about it.

This must have been done with the owner's permission. It would have taken far too long to have been done secretly.

I would hope this was a "commissioned" piece...certainly is colorful. But I always have a hard time reading the words...

Very colorful. Those grafitti guys are very artistic. Artist with a spray can. I wonder how long this piece took. MB

'Too strong to be stepped on, creatively wise.' Interesting words ... beautiful picture.

JM said...

Now that is a fantastic graffiti!

Halcyon said...

Art of graffiti. I guess it's a personal choice.

Rob and Mandy said...

Gonzo being the name of the engineer in the engine room???

VP said...

Not bad, creative and effective. I hope the wall owner agrees...

The owners prefer it decorated. That wall is always covered in artwork.

I like graffiti,a human form of art this is.

I don't know what it means, but it sure is neat looking. I like how the letters look like they're stone. Hopefully, this isn't a gang message (I'm probably showing my ignorance here). It's amazing what an artist can do with spray paint!

Every city has at least one wall something like this! This is quite artistic though.

Bill said...

It's a fine line between graffiti and art. Not sure which one this belongs to.

Someone has talent! Who is gonzo though?

It is beautiful. I think the owners of the "wall" allowed them to do that. In Montpellier many "commer├žants" ask "graffiti painters" to paint nice graffiti on their doors and walls in order to avoid ugly graffiti (which have been "proliferating" everywhere) to be drawn on them. In a way it is sad not to be able to keep one's walls the color one likes.

Its an artistic wall and better than seeing blank..

It must clash with the previous photo! Gonzo always makes me think of the Muppets.
