It's becoming a thing. Whichever city I find myself in these days there's always an enclave of art, storeys high. Someone must have commissioned it-surely? Or is it a movement to make the streets more pleasurable to walk along?
I have to admit I'm becoming a bit of a fan and look forward to seeing what the flavour's going to be wherever I'm going.
A couple of years ago in San Francisco we made a special journey to have a look at a couple of streets famous for their art (actually, the only reason I knew about them was because I'd been watching a series on TV called Sense8 which had a scene with characters running down these alleyways). We were amazed at the detail.
|San Francisco- this is on a wall! Wow!|
|San Francisco- yes, this is someone's garage|
|San Francisco - where is the door handle??|
|Hahndorf, Adelaide Hills|
Recently we visited Adelaide and were very pleased to see the movement is catching on there too! And the next two photos are from toilet walls in one of the cafes...all hand drawn. Amazing!
In Adelaide our Airbnb apartment looked straight onto this scene. We loved the funky feel and wondered who the woman is?

So, do you have anything like this where you live? Do you like it? Is it 'art' or just graffiti?
