Emotions on the street

Monday, June 20, 2011

I know that street art might be a bit controversial for some but I find it really inspiring. This incredible mural by Jana and Js on the streets of Strasbourg (France) blows my mind! Doesn't it give such raw emotions? Darlings, are you fans of street art or not so much? Do you have any great pieces in your city? xo

P.S: More amazing street art.

WOW - i dunno how i feel - is the baby happy or sad? - very raw like u said - def thought provoking - which i'm sure is the whole point of the artist!

Christianna said...

This is such a interesting piece of art, you don't know what the girl is thinking!

Street art is wonderful, cause everyone can see it. It's free, and it can also be some of the best art you've ever seen. What's not to LOVE?!

Diana Mieczan said...

Totally true, Christianna. It's hard to read her emotions that's why it's so appealing for me, I think.

I'm not a real fan of paintings on the walls, but this one is definitely good and touching.

Morgan said...

Hmm.. I can't decide whether this creeps me out or not. Either way, it's interesting! :)

Shockingly cool!

amy b.s. said...

how amazing. and so telling.

Amy said...

This is a hard subject.
Street art done in the correct way I have no problem with at all but defacing historic buildings with what some consider art, AKA Tagging not so great.
I think it does make a statement but it sometimes makes the "respect others private property" rule go out the window for the younger generation to abide by.
Such a hard topic to agree on.

Jess said...

Wow, this is just beautiful!

Carly said...

It definitely makes you feel something...you would have to have a heart of stone to not feel something looking at that incredible mural.

Beyond the emotion..my mind goes to the talent someone has to possess to do something of that size and magnitude....nothing short of amazing.

Bride-onicles said...

Beautiful. I love seeing street art when its good, its like I can't tear my eyes away from it.

I like street art when it is actually art. I don't like graffiti for the purpose of being malicious.

Diana said...

This is beautiful and eye catching. It really just grabs you. I hope you had a great weekend sweety. I love the street art in Philadelphia, it really brings the neighborhoods together and makes things look better.

Kirsty said...

how amazing I can't image working on a painting so huge!

Kimia Kline said...

i like good street art :) the problem is that most of it isnt good, haha. my favorite is swoon and justin supine.

shopgirl said...

i've seen in some neighbourhoods how street art beautifies a neighbourhood. So, I agree wholeheartedly that there should be more.

p.s. I also think that it adds a little happiness to the world.
Hope you had a lovely weekend Diana!

Bringing art to the streets for passersby to gaze at. Art is everywhere in France - even in the trees. xx

Galit said...

Beautiful!!!
I'm a big fan of street art. As long as it is done in a respectful manner it enhances the urban space in a wonderful way.
Lately we have heaps of murals everywhere around Adelaide, and it is awesome.
I enjoy those arty pieces so much when I walk around.

The detail is amazing. She seems very vulnerable and scared. I wonder what the artist was thinking!

I love street art! Some of the most amazing art!
