For number two of my occasional street art post, I’m in Warsaw. With apologies to the artist, this work reminds me of those colouring books for adults, does it you?
And is it art or graffiti?
Graffiti writing and street art are often confused with one another. Both are subversive art movements where work is displayed in public rather than a gallery setting. While graffiti artists place their work in public, . . .
Maybe this work isn’t finished, perhaps by now it’s in full colour.
Graffiti writing and street art are often confused with one another. Both are subversive art movements where work is displayed in public rather than a gallery setting. While graffiti artists place their work in public, generally speaking they are not interested in the public understanding their work; they want to speak to other graffiti artists. Street artists want everyone to view and be engaged by their work. They are trying to make a statement. Graffiti writing and street art are closely related contemporary art movements, however, they differ in terms of technique, function and intent
I’ve decided to do an occasional post of street art, so the quote is for anyone who is uncertain of the difference. Like many of you, I love street art and find some graffiti interesting.
I’m kicking off with this on from the trendy Cour Julien and I’d love to know your feelings about street art.
It seems I amused Becky yesterday with my Pinktember name 🙂
I couldn’t resist another mask from Widsith and Deor today, she’s bit more cheerful than the last one I posted, perhaps she’s feeling a bit more in the pink. I wish I was, but today is my first day back to work and I’m dreading the number of emails I’ll have to deal with!
Becky has some Portuguese pink flowers today. Happy Monday everyone 🙂
At first I thought that Paula had come up with a difficult challenge this week, but then I remembered how relaxed she is about how we interpret things. So, this is my entry for Lost in Details. She has a striking, bright image of . . . well you guess!
I think there are a few details to get lost in here, what do you think? Perhaps you’ll join in this week.
Tucked away in a back street , behind the Cathedral of the Holy Cross and Saint Eulalia, in Barcelona, I found this striking sculpture. I don’t remember there being any information, so I have no idea who created it, I just like it!
A sort of sparkly, circular spiral in my square for Becky.
I had the chance to pop into town today, so armed with phone i kept my squares eyes for any images that you might like. I’ve tried to photograph this mosaic before, but in the evening in poor light. Today it worked okay.
Isn’t it pretty? Do you have square eyes this month to join in with Becky? She likes circles inside squares too, if you look hard enough there are some here!
It looks a bit like that doesn’t it?
But of course it’s a sculpture, to be found in the Uffizi in Florence.
Paula’s black and white Sunday prompt last week was ‘texture’, but I’m a day late to the party, such is life. So I’m not going to link to her, you know where to find her and she has enough to do without dealing with latecomers 🙂
At various stitching, hobby and craft shows around the country, I saw them at Westpoint, Exeter in September.
The last two are my favourites, I could have happily taken then home. I’ve worn a sari and a salwar kameez, but never a kimono, have you? Click for a better view.
I’m having another shot at rounded with a photo I took in Florence last month. By Albanian sculptor Helidon Xhixha, this work is named ‘O’ seems to have caused some controversy between the Mayor, Dario Nardella and the local traders.
I’m glad he won,i like the sculpture very much.
