Painted Walls


What do you think of murals? 


Where is the distinction between a mural and a bit of graffiti? Does it lie in "acquiescence"?


Would you have one cascading down the wall of your house? I have spotted quite a few in my area:








A black cat crossed my path. Mumma used to say that this was lucky. I am not very superstitious.

  1. gorgeous examples in your neighbourhood, that makes a place rich to live in

    I think the difference is cultural: murals stem from Latin America and I believe Mexico in particular...or Portugal has plenty too. Perhaps it derives from Iberian grounds 'exported' to Latin America, and later brought to Northern Europe as well

  2. I thought black cats crossing your path was unlucky? But I want that first mural on my house... or across from where I get my hair cut so I can just point outside and tell the stylist, "Like that!" XD

  3. you can really tell the difference between a town and a city here. we just don't have stuff like that, up here it's no creative hub. and because i don't see a lot of this then i like it

  9. The first picture is beautiful!! The third picture is just creepy, something just seems off about that little girl. I have black cat and except for a few headaches I haven't had any bad luck.

  10. I think murals can look amazing. How would I feel about one on the side of my house....well that would depend on just how amazing it was. Art being art my amazing would be different from someone else's. I think you mama sent the black cat for luck on your new path. Xxxx
