Before the Rain

There is 100% chance of rain for the next two days so I got out for some photos while I had the chance. It would be nice to be able to stop here and have a drink. It will be at least sometime in February before that happens. I guess we could all get together for drinks if we wore these. Saw these in a florist just starting to bloom. Cute mosaic dragon on rue du Dragon. It’s not by the famous mosaic artist whose pieces that I’ve been searching for. I see quite a f...

The 12th

We once lived in the 12th and it seems like a really long time ago. I walked around the area with a friend the other day to look at it again. Nation, my old hood. This was new to me-the Ministry of the Interior. Street art, kind of graffiti, but very artistic done on paper and then pasted on. We saw these artistically arranged veggies in the Aligre market, one of the first I ever visited. Some more good street art. Yet another gorgeous flower shop. I just ...

Looking Around

Once again on our Sunday walk we stayed at street level above the Seine and did some exploring. An ancient clock still working. 600 years old! We stopped for another petit dejuner. I only had one of these. I thought they looked so pretty in the light from the window. Yet another picture of the Seine, a bridge and reflections in the water. I’m addicted. An interesting decoration on a building that was once a restaurant called The Silver Bell. I think the artist wh...

Banksy's pro-mask graffiti in London Tube washed away by cleaning crew

Last week, street artist Banksy, disguised as a London Underground cleaner, painted an excellent artwork inside a train car urging people to wear face coverings due to COVID-19. Video below. Turns out though, an actual cleaning crew wiped away the work shortly after it was created. From CNN: The work was removed "some days ago" because it was in violation of [Transport for London]'s "strict anti-graffiti policy," a spokesperson for the transportation agency said in a statement.

Banksy's brilliant idea to make "everyone happy" after activists pulled down Bristol slave trader statue

In Bristol, England, anti-racism protestors pulled down a bronze statue of slave trader and philanthropist Edward Colston and rolled it into the River Avon. Banksy, who is thought to live in Bristol, posted a brilliant idea that could please "both those who miss the Colston statue and those who don’t." "We drag him out the water, put him back on the plinth, tie cable round his neck and commission some life size bronze statues of protestors in the act of pulling him down," Banksy wrote on In...

Australia’s silo art

What used to be an illegal activity and a form of protest that was quickly washed out or painted over during most of the 20th century has become a highly distinguished art form, touted the world over, in the 21st. But while street art has evolved throughout the years to become loved and praised, it remains almost solely the pride of cities. Australia is having none of this urban exclusivity. For the past five years, Aussie street art has pushed beyond Melbourne’s Croft Alley and Sydney’s Bon...

Racist art covered by stickers

Art has always served as an outlet to express values and opinions. Some create a to promote peace, while others transform a historic plaza into a giant checkerboard to encourage safety and social distancing. However, freedom of expression can also cause offense. Racist graffiti on the streets of Manchester, England, has been humorously masked by a creative solution. An anonymous resident took matters into their own hands by covering offensive slurs with witty stickers of cats. Best stic...

Jack the Ripper mural

Jack the Ripper’s murders may have taken place over 130 years ago, but it’s only now that the victims are getting a suitable memorial — and it’s all thanks to social historian Hallie Rubenhold. Rubenhold is the author of The Five, a nonfiction story that delves into the lives of the five victims of Jack the Ripper — Mary Ann Nichols, Annie Chapman, Elizabeth Stride, Catherine Eddowes, and Mary Jane Kelly. As an advertisement for her book, a temporary mural was painted on Ebor Street in White...
