Street Art

This street art mural is located across the street from Bragg’s Pie Factory featured yesterday.  It graces the back of an industrial building facing the parking lot.  I think those might be huge letters hovering over the buildings but, I can’t make it out.  It looks like a bad storm is headed into town to me.
The smaller photo is another area of the building where a lot of wiring and meters are attached to the wall.  I kind of like that effect of smoke coming out of smoke-stacks.

Lots of work have been put in to this.
I like it.
Most times I like street art, but i hate artistic mess on private property.( Not sure if I can write it like this in English. Anyway, what I meant was that it cost a fortune sometimes to get it of houses and building....

KC has street art also. Here in KC it appears as the owner has had it created to draw attention to their business.

Interesting. Like you I can't read the lettering. It's interesting to compare art like this to some of the brickart that I've been finding in East Texas from the early to mid-1900s.

very cleverly integrated street art.

I like this, if it is done with the consent of the owner, as this appears to be.

Andrew Etchen said...

yes, very clever tags.

Randy said...

Sometimes they can add to a dull looking space if done well like these.

Very cool.

These are very well done! I tried goggling (is that a verb now?) the artists, but didn't find anything.
Love the colors

Very interesting art that you found there. It took some time and talent to do it. I wonder what it means!

The first is so colorful - but I'm not sure either about those purple creepy crawly critters...the second is very creative - a great way to make use of what is normally ugly and wasted space!

This kind of street art is great - obviously done with permission and livens up the wall.

It's great how much care and attention has been paid to these walls. Shame they haven't quite defined their font though.

Like your other viewers, I am surmising that this stuff is put here with the owner's consent. If so, I am OK with it, but candidly, I have little use for "street art," which seems like a euphemism for "graffiti."

Kate said...

I think that there's a big difference between graffiti and street art. These look like they are commissioned and do not qualify as unwelcome "art" by some moron with a spray paint can. I like well-executed murals on buildings.

Very different and I like both.
