Street Art and Faces

I have discovered more what I call street art in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, and decided to feature pictures of faces in this post. These paintings are amazing, beautiful, creative, and thrilling to see.

  1. I love to see a city embracing street art. My daughter lives in Bristol (home of Banksie who is nothing short of an idol in the city) and there is so much creativity as a result of the place encouraging artists to freely express themselves. Brighton is another place that is full of fabulous work. Here in Grenoble there is some good work but sadly the Peeing Tom Cats (those that just scrawl their names and foul expressions everywhere) have the upper hand. Our Mayor is very liberal and is not keen to stamp out what he sees as free expression but I wish that he would just modify his stance to suggesting that the real artists have a free rein to cover the horrors and that those found spoiling the good works should be given an appropriate punishment – like spending the day painting something mindful on a dull wall, for example … I am certain that just like small children with idle hands it would adjust their headset. Sorry. Soapbox. I’ll stand down now! 😬

    1. Most cities that i know about in the US have restrictions about painting on fences and walls. But what I see here is a bounty of color and art that lifts one’s spirits. Not certain Americans have grasped the idea of fine art on public buildings, but the kids ar quick to smear neighborhoods with ugly graffiti and gang signs.

      1. There is a difference between art and graffiti… our mayor is unkeen to recognise it. Which is sad. But your Mexican place … it just shines ☺
