Blue Monday

 In case you were thinking that this is
just graffiti, think again.  This is the work
of the street artist Swoon, who has
her own
Wikipedia page.

  1. It sure makes the artwork real putting it in an environmental context with some surrounding life to it—much more so than disembodied, ivory-tower art-gallery art, although I liked her gallery approach in the YouTube link below.

    Speaking of disembodied, the floating hands in the center of your photo look like Swoon’s style. Had another of her works been there but, um, been “modified” over time?

    She has her own three-movie section at Netflix.

    Great Wiki link by the way. I enjoyed the NYT article.

    YouTube has a nice bit here. And a number of others.

    Thanks for the heads up, Alexa. It is great to see what is happening in the world.
