Classic In The Laneway

I stumbled upon this piece yesterday in an Annex laneway/alley and totally love it! Somehow the graffiti moving onto the figure really adds to it rather than taking away from it. Urban art at its best for me!

Wow. How these artists get the effects that they do are beyond me. This is simply stunning. Any you have done it justice

Fantastic graffiti, it's amazing how the artist worked in black and white to create this piece! ;-)

Yes, as wall art goes, this is one of the better ones you've shown us. Nice catch!

I like the painting of the bust, RedPat, but not so sure about the graffiti.

This is a classic indeed. She has such a sweet innocence about her.

It certainly is an eclectic mix Pat. The bust is beautifully painted.

It's a beautiful piece of street art, Pat.

Fabulous! You should link this up to the MOnday Mural meme. It would be perfect.

Seems kinda nice for a laneway! I hope lots of people get to see and enjoy it.

She is downright haunting, great shot, I agree the graffiti really does add not distract
