Unhappy monkeys


I am back to posting local photos today and I found this interesting mural located not far from downtown on the outside wall of a local nightclub. I could not find the name of the artist.

Linking to Monday Mural.

Hear no evil, speak no evil, literally shot evil out of your eyes

A modern take on an ancient theme!

Lowell said...

The speaker of no evil certainly has a mouthful of no evil! Or maybe he's just monkeying around?

That is a familiar story about the three monkeys. The speaker is more shouting than speaking!

Hello, I love this monkey mural. Speak no evil or yell no evil? Great find.
Happy Monday, enjoy your day and new week!

I get the feeling it's okay to speak evil there.

they look angry but the detail is amazing in the painting. i like the two toes in the bottom right corner of the monkey hanging on... i can even see tonsils in one of them. super artist

...cheer up guys.

We live in stressful times!

When I looked closely, after reading the comment about the toes, I noticed the rectangular shape with a "test pattern" like TV's used to have at the bottom also. So I take this as a critique of our media! Much shouting, and nobody is bothering to cover their eyes any more!

I would have thought in this modern age he would have used social media instead of shouting.

God bless.

Quite vibrant! The one on the left looks irritable.

The famous three monkeys... a vibrant interpretation, Lois !

Good one...

RedPat said...

They sure are not happy! The middle guy is totally frustrated!

They're definitely not having a good day. Bad attitude syndrome.

Kay said...

Great find! I wonder if it's a commentary on current events.

Joe said...

A powerful take on an old classic.

Linda said...

There are days when I feel like that.

Great mural Lois. Frustrated with the computer perhaps?
Hope to see you next week when I start hosting the Monday Murals.

Oh that's funny Lois, super mural find but I'd bet my bottom dollar that monkey is not following the rules 😀
