Sligo walls, murals

On the walls around the Adelaide Car Park, Sligo Ireland, are a number of small murals.

Bedford, Denison and Alton murals

Bedford St., Denison St. and Alton Lane are all close to Newton train station.  Bedford runs parallel to the train tracks and some of the murals painted there can be seen from the other side of the tracks.

faces of Adnate

While walking in Fitzroy yesterday, I saw this face of a young aboriginal man that was just painted by street artist Adnate.

part of a larger mural, a street art painting of an aboriginal young man's face with white markings on his face, newly painted by Adnate in Melbourne (Fitzroy) with orange cones in front so that people don't walk in front of it.

It is part of a larger mural painted in collaboration with street artist Serum.

newly painted mural in progress, on the side of a house, beside a sidewalk that is roped off. A face by Adnate and a bird head by serum.

below: I have seen a number of these portraits around Melbourne including this one high above Hosier Lane.  This lane is filled with graffiti and street art and it is the lane that tourists come to see.  I wonder how many of them look up far enough to see the face?

Large mural of the face of an Australian aboriginal boy painted by Adnate in Melbourne - high on a wall overlooking Hosier Lane and all it's graffiti and tourists.

below: Back to Fitzroy where I have seen this large mural a couple of times now.  Both times, the combination of the height of the building and the location of the sun has made taking a picture of it challenging.

I found this photo:

power people

Surrounding the CitiPower Collingwood power substation at the corner of Easey and Wellington streets is a large monochromatic mural.  It is by Juddy Roller (a company specialising in street art and graffiti management) and it involved collaboration between street artists including Rone, Adnate, Mayo, Guido Van Helton and Askew.

The script/writing on the mural was painted by Mayo.

Las Vegas, Nevada

Two large murals dominate the corner of East Ogden Ave and an alley that runs between North 7th and North 8th streets. Covering the corner of large parking garage on the north side of that corner is a very large man painted in 2014 by Spanish artist Borondo. It was painted as part of Las Vegas’s Life is Beautiful art and music festival.

Across the alley is a mural by Finton Magee also painted as part of the 2014 Life is Beautiful festival.

Two large murals on two different buildings that are across the alley from each other. On the left is a large man by Borondo and on the right is a woman reclining on a beach by Finton Magee. She is holding a purple umbrella. There are also cabbages and white rabbits in the scene.

At first glance, Magee’s mural seems to be a beach theme but then you notice the cabbages and the rabbits. She’s not lying on sand either. More cabbages and rabbits are on the other corner of the same building. And what might have been sand looks a lot like fabric. A rifle leans against the building.

looking at a corner of a two storey white building with a mural painted on the two sides. On the side closest to the camera ia man sitting and holding an umbrella. He is wearing shorts and is topless. A rifle is behind him, white rabbits are also in the picture.
