I become a bee, a snail, a fly. With an eye for contrast and nuance.
I've been thinking of sharing some of this colourful treasure with you, plucked from the streets of Montreal, but what I am posting today is just a first taste.
You see, I had in store a whole other post, and I was about to put it together when I was flooded with translations. Good news! But I have to let go of writing and drawing (including for that intended post) during the next twelve days or so...
So here is instead a short and sweet (sort of...) bouquet of street art.
Striking, hopeful, resolute greens and yellows on dark backgrounds: signs of the times.
All of these pictures were taken yesterday, at various spots between rue Rachel and rue Marie-Anne, within twenty minutes (thanks to iPhoto for keeping track of my séance in time :o)
How about urban art in your own city? Have you posted about it somewhere? Or wanted to?
ps - For this post I chose to arrange pictures in a progressive way: shifting slowly from one mood/palette to the next. I wonder if I should have contrasted them, instead (which is what I usually opt for). What do you think?
Okay, here is another version (with a slightly different selection), in French.
I do like it better. Do you ?
Definitely like the thematic colour progression, but you know me Emmanuelle ;) I adore the botanicals juxtaposed with the urban textures. We live in a regional town so unfortunately people have little tolerance for street art here.RépondreSupprimer
Indeed Chontelle, your colour shifts and harmonies are always wonderful - and I realize in retrospect they might well have inspired me ! However, I feel I am not mastering this art quite yet, and I will probably try something else in the French version (soon I hope !).Supprimer
