Ride Snaps: Recent Murals, Graffiti and Street Art

Ride Snaps: Recent Murals, Graffiti and Street Art

While I’m out cruising around, I like to stop and take a look at murals, graffiti and street art along the way. Here are a couple bright spots from the last couple weeks.

I’m not sure why dueling grim reapers wearing oven mitts are partaking in a smash-up derby, but, okay. Also, I never really pegged the big GR as a Volvo kind of spirit. Seems a little “safety first,” if you ask me. But, what do I know?

At first glance, this mural may seem innocuous but there are little details about it that make you wonder what the artist had in mind. (see enlarged) Spotted this in Troy, NY.

Simple and sweetly primitive. It was on the side of Flavour Coffee Shop in Troy, NY.

This list of names painted on the roadway was near a high school. I’m guessing they’re the names of seniors who will be saying goodbye and heading off to college.

My daughter’s name 🙂

Just the right amount of ridiculous whimsy <3 This wall was in the parking lot of the Opera House at Boothbay Harbor.

Me too, dude. Me too.

 

 

Love Wins and Other Streetart Wisdom

Love Wins and Other Streetart Wisdom

What someone chooses to say publicly in paint fascinates me. I feel similarly about bumper stickers. You might only have one shot at getting the attention of someone’s eyeballs and this is what you want them to know.

My biggest takeaway from this little shack is LOVE WINS. I want that to be true more than anything. But now I’m being told to question it, so…? I don’t think I like the mixed messages here.

That’s better 🙂

Casting a long shadow.

Tony seems like a friendly guy.

Have anice day.

On the quality neighborhood stencil over the B, do you see a sunshine or a taco?
