A Long Mural





Sea Promenade at Carcavelos Beach

This wall, hiding a hotel/restaurant from the 50's ("about to be" restored for years!), has been recently painted by several graffiti artists

Joe said...

What a wonderful place. Isn't amazing how this artwork totall transforms these industrial walls.

Linda said...

This is a fabulous piece of "impromptu" art! Much better than the blank walls that have apparently been there for a while!

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

Popeye! I'm so jealous of all these cool murals.

This is very well done, and that wall would otherwise be an eyesore.

Murals? I yam what I yam!

And some horrendously talented muralists as well. These are really terrific.

I'm loving Popeye the Sailor man JM..very fun murals in this wall, let's hope it stays an 'about to be' project for a while yet!

Tylsä seinä on maalattu todella hienosti. Pidän tuollaisesta graffitista.
Hyvät kuvat.
Terveisin.

So much better than looking at a building site! I love the fox. Diane

Oh, I do like murals. Your shots really bring them to life.

Kay said...

This is so much better than typical graffiti! It's very nice.

RedPat said...

The fox is a beaut!

Kate said...

Those murals certainly do brighten up that promenade!

Lowell said...

It's hard not to like some of these works of art! Very colorful and they probably tend to lift the spirits of those walking by. It seems to me you've mentioned this hotel/restaurant before! :-)

My MONDAY MURAL is here

Jack said...

I fon't like most graffiti murals, but these are pretty good and pretty interesting.

Jack said...

JM, I just watched Grace Jones' Slave to the River from the Jubilee concert. Astonishing! Keeping the hula hoop moving for more than four minutes while singing her song in a space age costume . . . what imagination!!!

Randy said...

These are amazing.

Madge Bloom said...

Wow, so bright, colorful!

You weren't kidding when you said LONG wall. I like the way you lured us in with a few examples, and then BAM! It likes it goes on for a looongg while. A public art gallery if there ever was one. And it provides a public service by repurposing this oppressive/boring construction wall. I've seen several examples locally of construction sites (with actual construction going on--LOL) that immediately get artists to decorate their walls. Quite a nice trend. But it's the first time I've seen street art us a copyright symbol. More LOL. A sign of things to come? Thanks, JM, for participating in Monday Mural.

Very creative and colorful images!

Not a fan of murals, but it is easy to make an exception for most of these.
