Colourful

 Something different today. A downtown plot of land has been in a state of waiting to be developed for several years. Routinely boarding around the site is replaced. Recently a mural was painted by a small group of street artists on the boarding facing Bank Street. One morning in late July, I photographed it.


Here it is in whole, from across the street.

  10. That certainly brightens up a mundane scene. Lets hope the new building is as attractive if it ever appears.

  16. @Tom: considering the pace of the project, it could be awhile.

    @David: to me it does rate as street art.

    @John: I think this is the status quo for the lot for at least ten years.

  23. Fragmentando el Mural, se aprecian muy bien los detalles de la composici├│n, de dicho Mural....hay muchas partes que demuestran la gran maestr├şa y el arte de su autor.

    Feliz fin de semana.

  25. Interesting, I wonder if each artist was given license to exercise his or her own creativity within the scope of the work.
