Classy Utility Box

This utility box is located on Davenport Rd and looks like it is covered in tiles but it is actually a painted on design using stencils. It reminds me of the wonderful Portuguese tiles Jose used to show us. The artist for this one is Steph Anacleto.

I honestly thought there must be a swimming pool nearby! Love it!

This looks so much like the work of the Portuguese artist "Add Fuel" - I have similar photos of electrical boxes painted by him (Add Fuel) in Lisbon.

Classic!

Now this is stunning. Reminds of something you'd find on the streets of Lisbon, only that would be covered with real tiles!

Terrific looking, but it must have taken the artist a long time to get this one right.

I just love this! We have a utility box near our Florida home -- I wish some talented person would come and paint it -- it's kind of an eyesore even if we really don't use that side of the cottage at all, since we spend most of our outdoor time on the canal.

These blues certainly do appeal to me. And the effect does fool the eye.

I was hoping the tiles were the the real thing.
