This looks like an interesting exhibit!

Black and white does go with red. If that person is not a mannequin that is part of the art installation, she should be.

A good composition !

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Composition, colors, patterns... all perfect! It looks almost staged since your subject is color-coordinated with this fascinating (and colorful) exhibit.

Bisous,

You know how ironic this is, right? I mean "street artists" may be talented beyond all measure, but they still commit criminal acts when they deface public or private property.

Now, the guy has his own gallery showing? That's a riot!

The whole damn world is turned upside down!

Love colours in this photo:)

Forgive my Latin, but this is a case of nomen omen. I am not sure the lady is real, but she is perfect for the photo.

Great photo, the mood of the "things" on the wall seems to be in contrast with the sober attitude of the girl observing!
God bless you!

I do like all that bright color!

JM said...

@Dave and VP: The girl is real! :-)

@Jacob: Sickboy is british and this place is a store/gallery where you can find everything related to graffiti, such as books, posters or (ink) spray cans.

Perfect with the woman and her outfit matches quite nicely!

Jack said...

JM, what a terrific image. I love the way you captured the woman while she was deeply studying the work.

Francisca said...

Yes, of course the woman is real... But how well she coordinates with the installation. Good catch, JM!

I can't decide which I like best - the orange board and white lettering or the interesting bits on the wall.

Rob and Mandy said...

Very cool!

Siddhartha Joshi said...

Very nice indeed...i wonder what is the main subject, the artwork or the spectator herself :)
