Another mural from the No Limit street art festival in September.
Work in progress above…

… and then I went back to see the result a few weeks later.

The link goes to an interview I found online, where she talks about her art as a “contemporary expression of worship” and “the importance of words and how much power they have”.

  1. I love it when I can watch them actually painting. The lower end of these murals is called graffiti, but I think ALL these artists are so very talented. I don't know how she gt all these lines perfectly straight, and the curves so perfect.

    1. Ginny, I think it's only called 'graffiti' if it's done illicitly. Not when someone has been officially chosen and invited by the city to do it!

    1. The people arranging the sculpture and street art festivals have done a good job of it and it has certainly been a "facelift" for our city.

    1. I liked it even better after reading that interview with her :) ... And it is good to see an uplifting message like that written on a wall, as opposed to all the ones of negative or commercial kind that we get enough of anyway.
