Street art, Malinalco, Mexico

Last week of July, as I mentioned before, we escaped lockdown for a week, renting a house in Malinalco, 2-3 hours away from Mexico city. Though we did stay mostly in the house, garden, pool etc. we did “escape” a few times, duly masked, to the streets of Malinalco. A cute little town. Horses on…

Merry Noël and Bonne New Jahr

A chance mural, taken from the car in a rapid succession of snaps last Sunday in Tepoztlán. A pretty little town South of Mexico city. Sun and heat. Lots of great art. Need to go back. (With proper masks and distance, naturally). Merry Christmas, Feliz Natal, Joyeux Noël, Frölische Weihnachten, Feliz Navidad, Buon Natale, Hyvää…

World street art

Fiat lux. Power plant, Bogotá, Colombia. Simba the lion. Singapore, 2017. Shere Kahn the tiger. San Francisco, 2016. Il a un poil dans la main. In French we say of a lazy person “s/he has a hair in the hand”. Obviously can’t work much with a hair in your hand, can you? Tulum, 2020. (Or…

Street art Paris

Gare du Nord, Northern station, Paris. c.2016. Run folks, run! Beep beep! Flea market at Saint-Ouen. Love each other. Butte-aux-cailles, Paris. L. to r.

Unfortunately last year,…

Maya street art

“Copy paste”. I’m using the new bl..dy editor for the first time. “If it works don’t fix it”. Don’t you guys ever learn? Of course I can’t align the text as I want… Grrrr. (Just found the way!) Swimming through the waters of the programmer’s mind. Murky. Akumal by bus. Rastafarai! I’m feeling a bit…

Street art new and old

When we bought the new house in the South of Mexico city, in the Tlalpan neighbourhood, there was a house nearby, entirely painted with “street art”. Motifs inspired from pre-Colombian lore. Here’s how it looked from left to right. The central figure was a red-hair tree-woman (goddess?) The scroll coming out of her mouth was…

Street art. Come on! Again?

Konny. Paris, 2013. No more landlord arson. San Francisco. 2016. Butte-aux-cailles. Paris. 2018. Klim, I gather? Liverpool. Or is Berlin? (Mexico city. 2019) I told you a hundred times, stop picking your nose. Butte-aux-cailles, Paris. Zabou. Near Mission St, San Francisco, 2016.

Street art Paris.

La butte aux cailles, literally, the partridge hill, is a neighbourhood in the southwest of Paris. It was a blue collar neighbourhood in the 19th century, and still retains many of the cute old, 18-19th century buildings. Wouldn’t mind buying a flat there. 🙂 It has become a haven for street art in Paris in…
