Talento italiano!



In a small car park off William Street.. part of the FORMPublic project back in April, a mesmerizing mural by Italian artist Never 2501 (good link with short video of the maestro at work). This mural has been on my agenda since I first caught sight of it in the FORM booklet so yesterday I was determined to view and take some pics. Seriously stunning.. the undulating black & white lines give the illusion of movement which I think you can experience even from the photos oui!


Ok this one is just to mess with your eyes :) Funny story.. I was so absorbed, and slightly hypnotized while taking these shots I didn't realize I had an audience, as I turned to walk back to the car I heard a voice from behind.. 'aren't you going to take picture of us'.. two workers, I laughed and shouted back 'spread out on the wall like a work of art and you're on', I don't know who was more surprised them or moi :) Hope your week has started well, happy Monday, take care..

  12. "Undulating" was a great word to use to describe this. As I scrolled up and down to look at the photos they seemed to be moving and flashing before my eyes. Just stunning.

  25. Fabulous mural, Grace! Some of the American artist Sol Lewitt's work has similarities.

  26. Steffi said it all. I can't even begin to imagine how the artist rendered this complex design on a huge wall standing in a cherry picker. Thanks, Grace, for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
