Looks like art to me. Great post.

Leif Hagen said...

I don't understand the meaning of that graffiti but it's artistically done!
Bon weekend

Sharon said...

Some talent was involved in the making of this graffiti! This graffiti artist is a true artist.

Lois said...

Now this is what I would call "good" graffiti!

One of my favorites for Theme Day. Bravo!

Jarart said...

As much as I dislike the idea of graffiti, this is done so well, I think it's more of a mural. Nice find!

If I had to look at graffiti this would be the 'good' kind. Very artsy. Not vandalism. I don't see any graffiti in Stanwood except on passing freight trains. MB

Ben said...

Nice. comical. funny. Great!

Louis la Vache said...

THAT is some creative graffiti!

VP said...

This is something quite well thought and realized, I just don't understand why on a wall...

Weird yellow guy...
God bless you!

What is the point? All graffiti done on other people's property is vandalism and should be dealt with as a crime.

Otherwise, the so-called "artist" should be able to draw his "art" on your brand-new car.

Great framing on this! I actually really enjoy murals like these - this one is particularly humorous!

This is the "good" graffiti -- if there is such a thing, but it is indeed very artsy and I don't see it as vandalism -- at least not the kind of graffiti we usually see so much of! Fun post, JM! Enjoy your weekend!

Wow, interesting and funny murals! Not very comman here.

Hilda said...

Poor little guy!

:D

To answer your question, I'm going to assume that yes, I think the skeleton in my photo has something to do with Dia de los Muertos since this mural seems to change at different intervals.

This looks like the work of a professional graffiti artist. Not the run of the mill stuff I see around town.

This guy (or gal) is really good.

Joan Elizabeth said...

A fab piece of street art.

Francisca said...

A raging debate about graffiti here and everywhere... art or a crime? My opinion is that if it was uninvited on someone's private or public property it's uninvited, period, no matter how well done or how good the cause. But as a wall mural, this would be a great piece of urban art. (Jose, an overwhelmingly busy week prevented my from much blogging... your earlier posts this week are super, as always... )

Kate said...

I wonder if this is a political statement of some kind? Artfully done.

Gunn said...

Artistic and nice!:)
