Not So Wordless Wednesday

During the course of the past few years our fair city has seen multiple murals appear on local buildings. Some are very colorful while others look like oversized pen and ink sketches. I have picked some of my favorites to share.


This is one of the latest works located on a repurposed manufacturing facility. The building now houses a cooking school, a couple of restaurants and several other businesses. The artwork here is simply stunning.



I think the message in this two story work is that justice isn’t always blind and the scales may be tipped slightly in one direction. Just a thought.


This work is part of a much larger piece. I find it incredibly powerful. You just can’t help but look at it. You may find it attractive or not so much, but it demands your attention.


At the opposite end of the same wall is this cartoon-like panel. I used the “Whole New Adventure” panel as a background for one of our grand daughter’s senior pictures.


Finally, on the rear of the same building is this whimsical piece. I think the character looks a little like Prince. I’m not sure about all of the bubble faces.  I must say that I do like these murals better than random street art or graffiti. Have a blessed week.

  1. I love them all. Around here we get gang graffiti. That’s what you get when you live in California. Okay, off my soapbox.

    1. I’ve learned that I don’t have to understand it to like and I don’t have to like it to understand it. I can simply enjoy the art and appreciate the talent of the artist. Have a blessed week.

    I love the murals you found. Very dynamic and vivid and the workmanship is awesome. I kind of wonder if any of the artists are reformed taggers. Tulsa is getting lots of new murals also, all over town.
