World street art tour. Cont’d.

Paris, métro Nationale. 13th arrondissement. 2019. Many buildings have been painted over. A unique display of immense street art. A great initiative from City Hall. Just noticed the artist’s name. Inti is a Chilean artist born in Valparaiso whose work can be seen from Chile to Colombia (I’ll pay more attention on my next trip)…

Marylin waiting for the bus. Penang, Malaysia, 2017. “Looking for truth and a flat.” In that order? The flat can be arranged. But Truth? Paris, La butte-aux-cailles, 2018. Can’t make head from…   Tail… San Francisco, 2016. I simply can’t understand why the powers-that-be put a bus stop in front of perfectly good Street Art!…

A farewell to London. Brexit

Last Sunday, Theresa May(be) signed the Brexit agreement with the European Union. Regardless of what Parliament decides, it is time to bid farewell to London and our English friends.

Pot-pourri cinquante-deux

Mary Poppins? Bogotá, 2018. You sweet thing you… San Francico, 2016. (Some of you may remember my fondness for Lichtenstein’s art…) Amazon forest, 2006. Bradypus. Paresseux in French, sloth in English. This one took over half an hour to cross on the next tree. Slooooow. We need war… Mexico City. 2018. Fingers crossed. London 2016.…

Street Where Art Some

“Scotty. The Title generator software is down again.” “Sorry Sir. We’ll fix it. ‘Meantime, the Time-Space shift modules are fine.” “Sure Scotty? Last time we emerged in that wall above in San Francisco. 2016, if I recall.” “Because of the peacock, Captain. That is why peacocks are not accepted on Disjointed Airlines anymore as comfort…

Pot-pourri number…

Another journey in space and time. Who cares about numbers? Scotty is still working on the dinosaurs safari project. So he says. I wouldn’t hold my breath. Meantime… the above was taken Rue de Seine, Paris, c. 2016. Sketch by Gil Button. “Dieu et mon droit”. London, 2015. Better hurry up to post London shots,…
