Wave


When wandering down one of my usual laneways recently, I was amazed to come across this huge wave down the side of a building which had previously been the target of a lot of tagging. This piece even wraps around the back of this building so it catches your attention from either direction. Signed by artists Bomba, Hope, Ren, & Zion it was a fabulous sight on a winter day!
Taking part in Monday Murals. For more murals click here.

I love the simplicity of this one - I understand the wave!

Let's hope that no tagging mars this delightful wave.

Oh this is wonderful!

Is it time for Toronto to ban aerosol paint cans?

It is indeed be a great find on a winter's day!

I am so impressed that Toronto covers up tags in this fashion.

Nellies said...

Yes, this is nice! Like the colors and it reminds me a bit of an art project on Times Square where they painted the street and made it look like a river: http://www.mollydilworth.com/timessquare.html

I hear the Beach Boys.

Wow, surf is WAY up! Beats the heck out of miscellaneous tags. I really like that you found the signatures and published their names. It usually indicates they had permission to paint the walls. I could see where this would brighten a gloomy winter's day. Thanks for participating in Monday Mural.

Hard to be sure from the photo, but it looks like a huge mural... big improvement over tagging!

Very 'refreshing'!

That's a neat mural - and «Louis» likes the fact that it doesn't look like it was done by taggers!

«Louis» thanks you for your visit to San Francisco Bay Daily Photo.

It's simple but amazing.

Love the fresh blue colours Red, this one would brighten up the darkest spot.

Linda said...

Much preferable to all the random stuff on walls.

Sharon said...

It's a tsunami of art!

EG Wow said...

Love the various shades of blues!

I can almost hear the sound of the waves! ;-)

A quite effective "upper" for one's mood. Represents fun times. Do you think it will be left along by graffiti bums?

Looks fantastic! I hope it discourages tagging. Nothing worse than taggers doing their "dog pissing impression" on murals like this.

A wave! Great idea to decorate a long building.

Re the giant snail: all ceramic works are in that garden year round. I took the pic last week and it's winter. :-)
