Looks like an interesting character, wise beyond years and a gentle soul.

I have never seen anything like this before. Very unique.

Brilliant and subtle, and well captured with the light and the woman.

That is a whole new kind of mural. ( graffito technic from the old days). Looks wonderful.

That's a really fantastic "street art". I very like impressive works like this one.
Thanks for sharing!

Isn't that just amazing. I don't know how artists do that type of thing.

I've never seen anything like this. But I'm wondering how the artist got a perfect likeness of me? Hmmm.

Very nice. And the woman in the shot makes it special!

Hoping you're off to a great week!

This is really interesting. It's very nice work but, doesn't it open the wall to erosion from the elements?

I like it but does it damage the wall?

I love this. It looks like the artist may have added an extra layer of plaster to this wall for his work - which is beautifully done. This entire shot is wonderful; the woman brings it all to life.

Jack said...

This is excellent. Why don't we have artists like VHILS created more murals like this at the end of old buildings?

Randy said...

That's awesome!

This is amazing! What dedication it must've taken to scratch it out. Love the capture.

I think you showed us another piece by this artist. His work is stunning. The technique is beyond belief and all I can think is "How does he do that?" It looks like the neighbor woman is proud to have this on her house. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

That is so cool. A modern day bas-relief!

Maybe the old man is the woman's husband?
