Among all that colour and action I couldn't help noticing the green weeds and moss on the pavement.

Is some having fun with this one or are they trying to scare? I could take it either way.

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

There's so much to take in. The background is comprised of small, wavy lines, but you barely notice them.

Reminds me of Día de los Muertos...only this one is a bit scary. What is "holy spray?"

Susan said...

Fabulous piece. A little dark in mood, but there are so many moods, why not. Love the effect of the spray can over the banner-nice depth. Hope all is well in Lisbon.

Sharon said...

Wow, very well done. It makes me wonder if it was commissioned to if it is random. It looks like it would take way too much time to paint to be random.

Love this mural and how you used the other one as background!

Kay said...

This is a pretty amazing work of art. I don't really get the fascination with skulls, skeletons, and death, but being older may bring that on.

Rob Mandy said...

Very cool!

Brilliant but a wee bit scary!

Wow, wow, wow. That has such amazing imagery.

That really is cool.

A grim and somewhat nihilistic theme in this mural. Somehow death and holy are not equivalents in my thinking. Wish I could decipher all the words hidden in the mural's background. Maybe they'd hold a clue to the artist's intention. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

Hmmm... not sure what a holy spray is? Some kind of perfume or hairspray? Interesting mural with lots of color though!

What interesting artwork. I hope nobody actually demolishes it.

Holy Molly! ;-)

In the night might be a bit eerie, but otherwise I like this!
