Graffiti Bluebird: 3.12.21

This man with the painted face caught me off guard. It didn’t take but two seconds for me to LOVE it! I was envious in fact. Face graffiti, what a wonderful idea. And what an old one too.

I also liked the enormous drips on the side of this building. It’s so simple, but it’s one of my favorites and maybe that’s why. The “blue bird” graphic had to have been recent. The paint was shiny and vibrant. This is a LARGE graffiti/mural from the Albuquerque, NM area.

The cross is definitely part of a series that I have seen and photographed in other places. The concept is always the same: repeat of a basic module and then color it. I think they’re lovely. I still think that religion has a place in our lives and it’s not to be laughed at. You may not know this, but we’re all going to die someday, and religion can do a lot—not just to comfort us—but to reconcile us to that fact of life. I can promise you that the guy with the painted face knows about those kinds of connections. I don’t remember what country he was from, but he was not from the United States. OK, sermon over.
