City Paint Phoenix 16 – King Wong Whisper….

It’s been a while since I shared any of the city’s building art, but here’s another installment in the City Paint Phoenix series…something that I have named “King Wong Whisper,” as it appears that the young man is suggesting that we speak quietly…or maybe he’s encouraging us to not tell a secret….

The images have been tucked-away in my phone since May of this year….  I was “out in the field” for work and happened to notice the brilliant colors on the side of the building as I drove past.  And I knew that I absolutely had to turn around and take a minute or two to grab a couple of photos.

Amazing work…in my opinion…by an unknown artist on the north side of a strip mall located at 2545 N 32nd Street in Phoenix…”King Wong Chinese Restaurant.”  Click on the link to view the menu…and to see if you’re in the delivery area….

  1. Hi Scott, I would say the young man/girl is an great artist, too, and is really doing a great job with color and making the Northside a little more livable, too. I would love to see some of the art on other buildings.. Kat

  2. This to me Scott is an incredible likeness to David Bowie who of course we sadly lost this year. Was this the artist’s intention I wonder. Thanks for sharing.

  3. As always I’m amazed that someone did that with a few cans of spray paint.

    Like Chillbrook, I see David Bowie in this colorful portrait. Always enjoy your additions to the city building art series

    this is Bowie . . . the eyes leave no doubt
    as such, I start looking at the lighting bolt of his whisper
