Monday Mural

Bit late with Monday Mural but it is early Monday somewhere when this is published. Not remarkable but quite ok. I expect there is some deep meaning in the work, but it wasn't obvious to me. There wasn't the artist's moniker that I could see. I hope I have not posted it before, but if I have, no one will remember and it will have been a long time ago. I think it is Johnston Street in Fitzroy just east of Brunswick Street.

  1. Looks a bit psychedelic to me. Like someone was a bit high on something. My ex liked art like this. Me, not so much. Although this is not too bad. The bottom half disturbs me somehow.

    1. Maribeth, given the area it is in, the artist may well have been high on something.

  2. Oh my that's a big one. Bit weird as well.

    1. Cathy, I never understand how someone can get that large perspective.

  3. Looks ok to me. Looking upwards to what I wonder!

    1. Margaret, I suspect not a passing plane.

  4. It looks like the kind of artwork you would see on a poster in a college dorm.

    1. Really Kirk. Interesting. We don't know too much about college dorms here....well, I know some things!

  5. I'm not capable of deep and meaningful. I either like it for what it is or not. This one is colourful enough to brighten up a boring wall but other than that it doesn't strike me as being special.

    1. I agree Marie. Perhaps that it is pretty old and rather messed up doesn't help.

  6. I do like this, the suggestion of bird and flight and the "perchance to dream" element and I should add I always like the ghosts - former premises' names, ghost windows and doors,etc.

    1. WWW, yes, dream. That is what I see.

  7. Interesting. I suspect it falls into 'more you look the more you see' category.

    1. EC, that requires an attention span longer than a few seconds. I don't have that.

  8. It's interesting and nice enough, but what is that white scrawl over it? part of the mural? it spoils it somewhat.

    1. River, I don't know. It does spoil it. As I said above somewhere, it is quite an old mural.

  9. Pretentious, and not particularly well painted.

    1. Casting an artistic eye on the work, Cro. Your opinion is valued.

  10. I admire the ability to create such huge endeavours Andrew. I certainly could never do anything like this that's for sure. I wonder if the 'extra' detail wasn't part of the original piece.

    1. I am not sure about the extra detail Grace. It looks newer and fresher than the original work to me.

  11. The white lines look to me to show a bird's face and hooked beak, but it doesn't look like it was done by the same artist, does it? Nevertheless, an interesting piece in my opinion. And far, far better than the average person could do :)

    1. Jenny, it almost looks like an outline of a new mural that perhaps was never done. Yes, much better than most of us could do, even if not a great work.
