graffiti

 

 

 

 

Creative work is play. It is free speculation using materials of one's chosen form.  Stephen Nachmanovitch

 

This graffiti art photo was taken in Prague, Czech Republic.  It was painted on a wall leading up to one of the castles open for view.  After this photo was taken, we enlarged it and have hung it on our wall with other travel photos.  This is different in taste and format, but unique in it's expression.  The eyes of both the old women and the bird are intense.  Just what was the artist looking for here?  And why the combination of the two?  I find it interesting, very creative, but different, and sometimes wonder what became of the artist who painted it..

Perhaps it is a joke of sorts? as in two old birds?

wELL, there's something else we have in common--a glorious visit to the fabulous city of Prague!  Wasn't it amazing, the homage to art there?  Ya think?  We noticed masterful graffiti, too.  One of our students pointed out that someone had gone through the trouble of creating the art at home/studio, then applying to a full-size label...then adorning a tunnel.  Amazing city.  and music!  thank you for THIS, and for "Atlantis" which finally appears in haiku blog, dearheart.

Isn't it strange how some people look like their pets? lol Just kidding. :)  An interesting drawing indeed.  I see the intensity in the eyes.  It could mean a myriad of things.  Perhaps it means the lady is as wild as this bird.  I also get the feeling the lady has lived a very rough life...perhaps, it's been a case of survival of the fittest.
