A daub here and a splash there

Regular readers will know that I enjoy street art – classy graffiti if you will. Recently I’ve come across a few more examples and so, to jolly up your drab lives, dear readers I give you..

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published several books: a four book series following Harry Spittle as he grows from hapless student to hapless partner in a London law firm; four others in different genres; a book of poetry; four anthologies of short fiction; and a memoir of my mother. I have several more in the pipeline. I have been blogging regularly since 2014, on topic as diverse as: poetry based on famous poems; memories from my life; my garden; my dog; a whole variety of short fiction; my attempts at baking and food; travel and the consequent disasters; theatre, film and book reviews; and the occasional thought piece. Mostly it is whatever takes my fancy. I avoid politics, mostly, and religion, always. I don't mean to upset anyone but if I do, well, sorry and I suggest you go elsewhere. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.

    This is great stuff – I especially like the last one. You would love Melbourne, there are whole lane ways devoted to street art – just fantastic 🙂

    What fabulous art! We have several muralists here in Chapel Hill, and some of what they created on various walls around the town are my favorite things around town.

    These artists are so talented. I love the fact that they bring a bit of colour to the drabness. 🙂

    Ben’s father took up photography when he retired and spent his final years snapping street art and gaining quite a following on Flickr. He died a available couple of years ago but his Flickr page is still online – https://www.flickr.com/photos/newtown_grafitti/

  6. Loving it all – except the homage to Escher which is just a bit too much crazy Dali for me…….. and which is entirely my issue and nothing against the artist. Even my little city [which lives at least 25 years back in time] is slowly becoming accepting of street art and even encouraging it just a little. It’s an exciting trend.

    Cool stuff, Geoff. Is the last one a dead end sign? It looks pretty clever.

    I don’t know why, but I find street art disturbing and oppressive even if it’s a recreation on a pavement of a Botticelli. It makes me feel really doomy! Still, you can’t enjoy everything, can you…

    Very much like the stripy socks, though! (Sock it to me).
