What incredible eyes! Almost a little scary in the intensity - but a wonderful piece of art!

Kate said...

Lovely, despite its need of a bit of repair. Penetrating eyes.

I really like this one! The eyes are HUGE! :)

Susan said...

Gorgeous piece. I love the scale and the eyes I'm guessing are at eye level. Great find.

Arija said...

A very powerful image.

This immediately put me in mind of Michael Jackson. And then it became sad ...

Hmm... I don't know what to say about this one. I'd like to see these dramatic eyes with my own eyes... standing on the street.

What an amazing mural!

This is stunning. I suppose if one wants to bypass the hustle of getting into art galleries, collections, or museums putting something like this on a wall is a way to get your art seen. And there is the thinking of it being transitory. . .But I guess for so many reasons I have trouble accepting graffiti as art.

Fantastic! And haunting.

Very compelling street art. Whoever did this has raw talent. Was there a signature? Too bad it's already crumbling. Do you think it's the wall itself or the quality of paint? Thank you for contributing to this week's Monday Mural, JM.

JM said...

@Oakland DP: It's an old wall. Besides, I've seen this for the first time years ago, so I think I might say it's an 'old' graffiti as well. :-)

RedPat said...

Very haunting, JM! Good one.
