“My favorite street art in Sydney” sounds straightforward enough, doesn’t it? There is so much fantastic street art there though, that I found it hard to choose my favorites from the hundreds of street art pictures I took during my explorations.
Anyway, I gave it my best and here is my first selection.
(You can expect more batches during the next months, every now and then.)
- I love this wall with its rounded brickwork, the characteristic window and the wheat paste street art.
- Stencil street art. Did you know that we used to have a Dalmatian at home when I was young? I loved that dog! When I moved out, I sometimes called my parents, so that they would keep the phone at the dogs ear while I talked to him. My mother would then report back to me: “Oh, now he’s tilting his head to the left. Oh, and now he looks happy.”. Animal-lovers do the strangest things, don’t
- Intriguing wall art on a house in Surry Hills, Sydney.
Made me think of Hieronymus Bosch.
So funny that I only discovered later, looking closely at this picture, reading the text above the mural, that it IS indeed based on Hieronymus Bosch!
Between the ages of 20 to 40 (roughly) I was a very active art lover. I taught myself everything, back then.
The last decade or so, though I still love art, I am not very active nor up-to-date any longer. But I still benefit from what I saw and learned back then, like with this mural.
- Scorpio-ish lady?
- Love this mural. Cool lettering (one of my recent obsessions, by the way. Having fun trying out fonts with a calligraphy pen) and happy quote.
- This mural is intriguing.
I see a woman who makes a certain gesture. (While Googling I read this supposedly is the cheating wife gesture. Really?!)
I see her dress going all the way to the left. There we see a black cat. In her hair we see the head of a dog. On the right, is that a fish? Then there is the rainbow. Is this a pro-gay mural? Any ideas? Please tell me in the comment section.
- I saw this mural from our balcony in Sydney. It was pretty far away. I tried to find it back, strolling through the neighborhood, but never succeeded. I like the mix of styles and the two faces.
Things can look very different from high above and from street level.
- A mirror with the face of a woman? man? with short hair and a public transport map. You can see me taking the picture in the mirroring surface.
- A very pretty, colorful mural. A bit hippie style. Made me think of Mandalas
- Detail of the previous mural. Cute. I see a Matrushka doll, two Day of the Dead skulls, a moth, a snowflake and a diamant.
My favorite picture is no. 1, because of the colors and atmosphere of the picture. My favorite street art is no. 5, maybe due to my current lettering obsession.
Which are your favorites?
