Art... on the street!



Could street art get any more 'street' than this :) In a lane abundant with art on the walls in Highgate the sploshes of paint left behind by mural artists, intentionally or accidentally, have been re-worked into comic characters. I recognized SpongeBob SquarePants above and below looking down the lane..
 

... his best friend Patrick Star below.


... genie summoned from his magic lamp :)


 ... and lastly this could be Looney Tunes character Gossamer, the shoes give it away :) I'm kidding.. I had no idea but it's true.. you really can find out everything on Google! They're pretty cute and creative don't you think.. made me smile anyway :) Show you more of the serious murals from this spot next Monday. Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe...

  7. This is a very clever way of dressing up paint splashes. I would not have recognized the cartoon characters, apparently art is int he eye of the beholder.

  15. That's definitely street art, right on the street itself. I don't think our maintenance people here would appreciate this so i won't try it, creative though it definitely is!

  19. They indeed are cute and creative. It looks like all of them swallowed fire crackers. Or maybe were Peeps that got microwaved too long. But I did chortle. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
