Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Graffiti & Murals

To mirror the opening image from two posts ago, here is another poster from Slovene Academy of Sciences and Arts’ Research Centre (ZRC SAZU) in Ljubljana, to go with the theme of public murals and graffiti. Sometimes the birds leave a spot clean. And the sofa (especially the one on the left) is cool too.

I love this, the idea of improving environment by adding to it. Improvement is relative, of course, but I like the idea of “democracy” behind an unmolested graffiti. I have yet to take photos of any significant murals, especially in Roma, but here is what I’ve got so far. Translation from Slovenian and location given in the captions. More images of Pisa street art and impressive Metelkova City in Ljubljana have been posted here and here.

And here is a special house in Škofije on the border between Italy and Slovenia that was obviously given to children from different countries as a plaything. Give kids a chance indeed!

To all public artists and writers with stuff to say and show: please, carry on. The world needs your expression and colours and wit. And authorities better let it be. It’s the stuff of life.
