Faces

I spotted this row of faces in my neighbourhood this week on a wall that is constantly being tagged and then repainted by the property owner. The faces are done by the artist Anser who has done hundreds of these line-drawings around the city over the last few years. They are not commissioned and most of them disappear fairly quickly as I think these probably will, but it was nice to see something other than ugly tags springing up here.

I like those heart shaped squiggle faces a lot Pat, nice to have them there even if it is just for a short while!

I like them, too bad they will disappear.

It appears he did it all with one continuous unbroken line. That requires some forethought. Very nice.

Great drawing . Somebody must have practized this before to get a so on the first sight simple drawing. I like it.

It's amazing!

It's interesting how the artist captured expressions in line drawings.
To answer your question from yesterday, we didn't have any special permission to park we just pulled in and got out. We weren't at any location for very long so I think we were just lucky.

In today's post sccollections referred to those who tag murals as "mural vultures." Hope the mural vultures stay away from this mural for a long time.

I'm not sure what tags are, but this artwork is amazing! I'm sure they're much more preferable than tags.

Love the rhythm of line and color. If it were me, I'd leave them up, at least for a while. I'm glad you were able to get a photo to show us. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

Kinda clever, certainly better than tagging.

Have a good night:))

It's better than the visual clutter of tagging.

Randy said...

Simple but very nice.

Halcyon said...

I love how those simple lines create such expressive faces. Cool find - I hope you find more!

Wouldn't like them outside my house - but they're actually rather nice!

Chrissy Brand said...

As others have commented, better than the usual graffiti that is such a blight globally...

Very very nice indeed. I think that if I were the property owner, I'd take a bit of time before painting over that one!
