Tuesday Transformations

Never mind give me a lever and I will move the world, try give me some paint and I will change the world. There are about 15 of these buildings transformed by murals and colours, so I will aim for three each Tuesday for 5 weeks. (I don't know if the names are the painters' names or the photographers'.) Yes, at times the angles are a bit different, but don't be picky.

"Let's Keep the Plants Alive",  Bialystok, Poland, by NatalieRak, 







"Juliette Et Les Esprit", Montpellier, France, by Patrick Commecy.

    1. It's is very good, EC. I am doing them out of order because not everyone is so super, such as the middle one, so I am mixing them through.

  2. Wow. And Wow again. Like EC, I LOVE the owl and that last transformation is really excellent too.

    1. I agree Hels. It is so three dimensional.

  4. Some of these works are SO VERY GOOD. In my UK home town of Brighton there are some superb examples. So much better than those horrible 'squiggles' they call graffiti.

    1. Cro, you don't know Jane and Lance Hattatt, occasionally of Brighton but mostly of Budapest? All of us of a certain age dislike mindless graffiti, unless they are clever political slogans.

    2. I only knew of them through their blog. Yes they had a Regency flat overlooking the sea.

    3. They are a very nice couple both with great senses of humour. We met them in 2014. https://highriser.blogspot.com.au/2015/10/euro-cruise-day-23-may-10.html

  5. I think you know how I feel about good street art Andrew, J'adore! Love the owl, the plant waterer and of course the Montpellier but I have heard that Melbourne has some of the best street art in the world, do you ever come across any spectacular murals?

    1. Yes Grace, I do come across some really good murals and I have shown them in my blog. Sorry to be so crude and frank, but the whole Melbourne street art and laneway culture is a load of shit and tourists fall for it. At least per capita, if not just by numbers, I think Perth does much better.

  6. I love the 2nd, the 4th and the 6th of your art photos. But of all six, I believe I like number 6 the best of all.

    1. Sandra, it would be interesting to see them in real life and whether they look as good.

    1. Sami, as we at times say, the owl mural was really thinking outside the box.

  10. Plants alive and Montpellier are both lovely. On the other hand the owl does nothing for me.

    1. Victor, I don't really know why but people seem to really like owls. Perhaps they haven't seen one rip another animal apart.
