Back on the West Side
On Monday I posted a mural I found on the west side arts district of a human heart. Today I'm posting the lungs to go with it. This street planter was found along Grand Avenue along with several others but, on closer look at this photo I see a signature, Dambrova. I looked it up and sure enough found the artist for both this and the heart is one Bill Dambrova. If you are interested in his work, click the link. For those of you who found the heart a little disturbing you might want to pass. The artist states: "Painting allows me to explore, and share worlds that would normally remain unseen. ....I am mystified by the inner workings of living things and the events that take place in our bodies and minds." Indeed! His art definitely has a "vascular" look to it.
Here is another one of the street planters. This one has a flower theme that is quite attractive. Tomorrow I'll show you some of the other art I found along the street.
