  2. That’s a cool painting-as in not hot. Cool colors.

    • And quite faded, too, Allen…it’s on the south-facing wall and has been there for eight years now.

  3. Stunning artwork. Seems odd that it is on the side of a tattoo/piercing business. Perhaps the building housed a different business when the artist painted it or maybe the artist had another message in mind.

    • Yes, it is stunning, Laura…and it is at a strange location, indeed…but then it seems that he puts his work “wherever.” If you remember the post about the “Indigenous Woman,” it’s on the side of a bicycle parts warehouse…and he’s got another on the door of a chocolate “factory,” so it’s hard to match the context of the painting with the location….. It’s nice to look at, wherever it is. 🙂

  4. Stunning art work – is the wall corrugated or is the ‘banding’ effect part of the art? Reminds me of the bands you used to get it you took an image of a TV screen.

    • Yes, it is fantastic art work, Andy…and that’s actually a roll-up garage-type door, so the appearance of banding is the actual joining of the metal slats that comprise the “roll-able” door. It makes for an interesting medium on which to display the art. When I browsed the artist’s web-site, I found several other examples of him using this type of door for a canvas….
