Life

I spotted these two guys working on this mural two weeks ago along Harbord St and then the week after there was an article in the newspaper about it. They had been commissioned to do the mural and had to do it in one day to have it ready for the release of Justin Beiber's new album. Apparently he had 18 murals of the titles of the songs on the album painted in cities all over the world. The artists for this one are Kyle Howard and Max Sawka who had also done the mural on this wall that they painted over.

Sense a bit of tagging involved as well

Andy said...

Bad boy Beib has his own murals. Interesting. ;))

TexWisGirl said...

not a fan of justin bieber, but i hope the mural makes folks smile.

EG CameraGirl said...

Hmmm. I like the colours but the style reminds too much of tagging. ;))

Sharon Anck said...

The message is great and I'm glad the artists are being paid to do this work. It's best I don't comment on the singer.

What a stroke of luck to be able to get the whole story as you have. I quite like it somehow.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

It is a good message and as Lauren said so interesting to get the whole story, nice work Pat. The young man got into quite a spot of bother in Australia, I get the impression he thinks he's above the law :)

It took a minute for me to figure out the message, but I like it.
Have a great week!

Marketing!

Sami said...

Not a fan of Bieber either, but nice message nonetheless.

Justin Bieber.. Is that a brand of ale?

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

I can think of a great many people worth having a mural made for rather than who this one is. A waste of good wall space.

A very nice big tag.

William Kendall said...

Very colourful, though I wish Biebs would take a ninety year vow of silence and seclusion.

Lowell said...

Great shot, Pat. But what a world! Justin Bieber, really? I'm with William, although I'd extend the time from 90 years to eternity!

Jackie Mc Guinness said...

Everybody has pretty well said what I thought.

Halcyon said...

Nice color! Though I don't care for the Bieber.

VP said...

More graffiti than a mural, wasted time anyway...

cieldequimper said...

Not a great fan of tags but I like that you caught them at it!

Revrunner said...

One day. Wow! Pressure. :-)

Marleen said...

It must be a great thing for fans of Bieber.

jennyfreckles said...

Tend to agree with the comments thread - but not everyone will associate the sentiment with a song and it's a nice thing quote.

I like the mural, Justin Beiber not so much!

GreenComotion said...

Agree with the saying in the mural and love the bicycle next to the mural too!
Fine addition...
Have a Great Week!
Peace :)

Taken For Granted said...

Not a good reason for a mural, but this one is dynamic with its bright colors. Not sure about the graffiti lettering?

Kate said...

One day is a short space of time to paint and finish a mural of this size.

Karen S. said...

Perfect words no matter! I like it.

Michelle said...

Glad to see the artists making some money from their talent.

Stephanie said...

Great words to live by.

Laura. M said...

Very handsome. I love ;)

Oakland Daily Photo said...

These guys are the real deal; Bieber seems more of a poseur. All in all, I'm glad the artists got the work. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
