Monday Mural

A rather colourful mural in High Street, Windsor. No, I did not climb up to see if I could see the artist's name.

  1. Very colourful - and probably impossible to miss.
    I do like street art.

    1. EC, yes, quite dominant as you pass by.

  2. If the artist dies, the building could end up charging higher rents.

    1. Kirk, except murals do fade, at times quite quickly.

    1. Dora, it does rather. There are touches of Aboriginal art in the work.

  4. It looks more like a billboard than a painting. Interesting image.

    1. Cro, I guess that result is what happens when a professional does the work.

  5. It's eyecatching, but I wonder if it has any meaning?

    1. River, I am sure it does, and better appreciators of such art than myself might come up with some brilliance, that would leave us mystified.

  6. That's different and would stand out - would catch my eye due to the colours.

    1. Margaret, of course such bright colours fade easily. Facing east, it doesn't get the worst of the sun.

  7. Sometimes public art can be cheap, nasty and blatantly political. But sometimes a mural can be well thought out and full of colour. Go Windsor!

    1. Hels, I don't mind public art being political, so long as it batting for same team as I am. I would guess this piece was commissioned by the developer of the apartment building.

  9. Ah, now I see a rather abstract horse's head and also a Lobster claw! I love the colors and the art deco quality!

    1. Grace, perhaps named after the hero Grace Bussell.

    1. Marie, not even stairs. A lift or escalator would be ok.
