Downtown Mural


I caught sight of this mural in downtown Phoenix as I was passing and turned around to get a photo.  The artist was actually there working on it at the time.  His name is Jeff Slim and he was working in a very narrow space between two buildings on a very hot day.  That's dedication.  He told me that this entire wall has been set aside for murals all by different artists.  I'll go back and get more shots of the others sometime soon.

Quite psychedelic, well done Mr Slim!

"Help! Where's my head? My eyes? I can't see!"

So interesting Sharon, did he explain his motivation?

Judy said...

Interesting! Did he tell you what this is depicting? It is very colorful. I can't imagine being out in the heat painting a wall. At least he didn't have to wait too long for the paint to dry.

I do like the colors but don't have a clue as to the rest of it. Perhaps I just live life with blinders.

That's nice that you got to meet the artist - doesn't happen very often. Sometimes, though, I think they need to also put up an explanation of their work on the wall.

That is going to be a fun wall, Sharon!

Quite unusual. It does command attention.

If I saw this, I am sure I would take a photo too - it is full of vibrant colors. I like that. Meaning? Not sure.

I want some of whatever he was smoking!

Lois said...

Interesting. I like it too. How wonderful that the whole wall will be covered in murals!

Randy said...

Very cool!

Bob Crowe said...

Well, I suppose he should be slim to work in a narrow space. Surrealism lives.

José Mendonça said...

Very cool and eye-catching!

Steve Reed said...

How interesting! Did he tell you anything about what it represents, or what he took for inspiration? (I don't mean drug-wise, though I suppose there could be some of that too. :) )

Kate said...

Bright colors and so appropriate to include turquoise jewelry!

Jack said...

It is kind of ice, but it doesn't mean anything to me. You are reminding me that I saw a mural I need to photograph some day.

Halcyon said...

I like all the color on this one.

Is it a way to say "I don't want to show my face"?
