Who are the artists, and who are the subjects in the photos? An artist called A Tonila has painted many of the electrical boxes.
Prahran is a fairly inauspicious suburb in Melbourne . It is however home to The Cullen hotel one of the worlds top 100 boutique hotels. The Cullen is an artistic hotel with fairly bright prints on every wall and rooms decorated in unusual styles that include donkeys and mules staring down at the bed as you sleep.
Prahran is also home to a fair number of street art designs including one of the best I have seen worldwide . This excellent piece of work is down a dismal alley and one can only presume the artist chose this site for some very precise reason.
Craiova, Romania’s 6th largest city and capital of Dolj County, is situated near the east bank of the river Jiu in central Oltenia. The population of 300,000 makes it the same size as Iceland. It lies around 145 miles from Bucharest.
There are many things to see and do in Craiova however the street art does not mentioned in any of the official websites.
Here are a few examples of what can be found downtown in craiova.
Ljubljana is Slovenia’s capital and largest city. It’s known for its university population and green spaces, including expansive Tivoli Park. The curving Ljubljanica River, lined by outdoor cafes, divides the city’s old town from its commercial hub. Ljubljana also has many museums, including the National Museum of Slovenia.
What however is less well known is the street art that covers walls in many parts of the city. Here is a selection of some of the variety you can see, all from the city centre. Some are works of art whilst some border almost on the graffiti border. Would you want a half eaten fox on the wall of your restaurant?
The more I see of street art, the more i realise that there many types, genres and flavours. Some huge and some small, but there are some also that are hard hitting in a nice way and only words. Here is an example from Sonennallee in Berlin. One of my favourites.
Craiova is a city around 4 hours drive from Bucharest in Romania. Some of the street art there is incredible and I will do a full article on that with photos, but here as an example we have a painting on the end of a row of buildings from which a casual passer by seems to have jumped out of the painting. Maybe he has.
This is a serious suggestion. Many football grounds are actually relatively bland now and could do with a bit of organised decorating. I am sure many will disagree but the standards of graffiti art or street art are so high now that under some sort of supervision the inside and maybe the outside of grounds can be somewhat improved. Thoughts?
The street art might be football related of course and even reflect previous players.
As I travel around Europe there is an ever increasing amount of street art to see and some is extraordinary and in fact only rarely is it average or poor.
Lets have a debate over this topic.
