Monday Mural

Imagine Trumpet and Arnie discussing what is good for America.  Quelle horreur! Somewhere in Richmond and again by an egoless artist who hasn't signed the work but my skillful research prowess discovered in about five seconds that it is by Lushsux,  https://www.instagram.com/lushsux/?hl=en. I like his name.

  1. That mural would put me off my cuppa.
    I really like his Yoda though - thanks for the link.

    1. EC, I don't think this is his best work.

  2. Does he often not sign his work? (Instagram wouldn't let me see much unless I either created an account or logged in with a Facebook account--will the masses never resist the work of the web giants in making us marketable down to our pinky toenails?)

    The figure on the left looks a bit like Arnold Schwarzenegger (who, wicked though he is, at least hates Trump), and I don't think the artist succeeded in depicting Trump as the loathsome subterranean creature that he is.

    1. Snowy, it is a curious thing why Perth mural painters nearly always sign their work, but Melbourne mural painters often do not. Get over being the product­čśť You are already and resistance is pointless. Yes, Arnie in mural. It looks like they came to agreement on something. I didn't know they did not like each other. To Arnie's credit perhaps.

    2. "Get over being the product­čśť You are already and resistance is pointless."

      Nonetheless, Andrew, I try to avoid having any connection with businesses like Facebook that regularly violate the rights of their account holders-not to forget, in the case of Facebook, helping Trump become president.

      Is the defeatism with which you approach your Internet life reflected in other aspects of your life? For instance, in this post, you shared what amounts to a political statement, but if you feel that wealthy bad guys are going to win no matter what you do, why bother to do anything? Why not just look the other way and allow the homophobic Christians, the global warming deniers, and all other well-financed exploiters and enemies of freedom and morality have their way?

    3. Snowy, you may see me as being defeatist. I see me as being practical and realistic, however I do think things should be fought for and fought against and those who are out there on the ground have my admiration. I've done my part in the past.

  3. Oh Bother, What A Bummer. To All Of You Down Under, As An American, I Sincerely Apologize. Both Of Those Chumps Are An Embarrassment. And The Women That Stand Beside Them, Awful Representation To The Youth.

    Send Love Please
    Cheers

    1. Padre, yes, yes and yes. But we don't blame decent people in the US who would never vote for Trumpet.

  4. Was Donald Trumps TV show The Apprentice shown in Australia? After he became president, he was replaced by Arnold. Is that what the mural is referring to?

    1. Kirk, yes. It was shown here but I never watched it. I don't remember Arnie following. You may be right.

  5. Truely an embarrassment. I could go on about our President. I don't want to be in blogger jail.

    1. Dora, only in the US will you be in Blogger Gaol. No where else in the world.

  6. Hopefully Thump would never be allowed into Australia, before he is impeached and certainly not after. So let us not have fake views of Thump on the walls of Richmond.

    1. Hels, make you choke on your ristretto did it?

  7. Look at the way he's depicted trumps 'nasty' fingers 'digging into' arnies hand. And the frustration/rage on trumps face.

    1. Cathy, I didn't notice that and you are right, the equivalent of Mark Latham's handshake with John Howard.

  8. I wouldn't want that on my wall; no thanks.

    1. Margaret, viewed from afar. Good it is not opposite houses.

  10. With apologies to the artist who must have worked hard to produce it, that's one mural I wouldn't mind seeing graffitied, or even removed. I'm not a fan of Trumpet.

  11. I could add a long list of descriptive adjectives, most of which my mother told me to never utter in public, to describe he who must not be named.

  12. He's reviled all over the world. Good to hear!

    1. Hi Sharon. He may have some closet admirers but generally I think he is reviled world wide.
