Monday Mural

Fortunately I have a little store of photos to use until lock down ends although this was taken during Lock Down Mark I.

This one is on the side of Coles Supermarket in Coventry Street, South Melbourne. It is a rather classy mural and I hope you can read in between "#social distancing".

There is a web address on the mural, MelbourneMurals.com.au but that redirects my browser to presumably the artist, https://www.brigittedawsondesigns.com/ . If you click on Mural tab, you will see the work called Making of Adam.

I had to do some inventive cropping to rid the photo of a road works witches hat and other ugly bits. So what do you think of Brigitte's work? Thumbs up or down?

  1. Skilled and clever.
    Not to my personal taste - but it is definitely both of those things.
    And yes 'God' and man have been social distancing for a very long time.

    1. EC, nor do I like those old religious style paintings although remember how Sister Wendy used to bring them alive with detail?

  2. Thumbs up.

    As for Brigitte's (and Michelangelo's) Adam, if I were God I'd have a hard time keeping my social distance.

      Cute :) Perhaps they should have bumped elbows!

    2. Kirk, unfortunately Adam was lacking in one area but as the saying goes, it is what you do with it.

  3. Brilliant artwork.

    Let's hope people follow suit...take note...pull their heads out of their nether regions...and abide by the lockdown restrictions.

    There are many wonderful works of art shown on that site...I'll now go into it again for a longer viewing. Very clever, talented artists, indeed.

    1. Lee, she is pretty good isn't she. She lives where some family live but they are soon to move.

      There will always be people who don't obey but I can tell you, there is climate of fear among many people here now. Us included.

  4. This is on a Coles building? I'm surprised they allowed anything at all that isn't advertising for their company.
    It's excellent work, but I don't like it.

    1. River, I had a look with Street View and I think Coles is a tenant in the building. There is a commercial radio station there along with offices. Your opinion of the work is the same as mine.

  6. The right hand side is definitely more like the original that the left, but well done overall. I even like the faux-marbling.

    1. Cro, as typical of me, I missed the marbling detail.

  9. I quite like it Andrew, and the "social distancing" in the middle makes it a mural for our times.
    Keep well Andrew.

  10. I like it very much Andrew. There are a lot of murals during these past months depicting social distancing, will we look back on them and remember. Maybe social distancing and hand washing will be the way forward. Thanks for the link, enjoyed seeing more of her work, so much talent ✨

    1. Thanks Grace. While I am not sure about social distancing remaining, I expect hand washing and sanitising will be around for a long time, if only to prevent yourself catching a cold or flu.

  12. I saw the original in the Sistine Chapel at the Vatican in 1969. That was awesome.
