Monday Mural

I am joining with Sami and others for Monday Mural. 

What to make of these painted on an electric substation?

  1. I'm sure if I like them or not but cannot help thinking of Salvador Dali. Thanks for sharing and be well, Andrew.

    1. I decided that last one is rather to my liking. And they all need a symbolic crutch added. lol

    2. The second one arouses my curiosity Darla.

    3. So true. It provides lots of thought provoking imagery in retrospect.

  3. Like Darla, I prefer the last one.

  4. The 2nd mural with snake hatching a python is so scary to look at

    1. Quite so, Roentare. It keeps my eye the longest.

  5. Definitely eyecatching - and an improvement on blank walls.

  6. I love the blue tongue lizard but they are all rather stuff of nightmares.

    1. Merlot, not something to dream about at all.

  7. They are a bit weird and arguably self-indulgent. Street murals should have appeal for ordinary folk and I don't think these three do.The best of the bunch is the tree-fish - making a connection between leaves and fish scales.

    1. YP, it is good to have a proper artist's opinion. Thank you.

  8. I do like the whimsy of the Fish Tree!

  9. I would stop and stare, something I normally don't do when an electrical substation comes my way.

    1. Kirk, like it or not, it is something to stop folk to look.

  10. Odd but entrancing, something fishy about that tree one :)

    1. The basic background colour was a good choice Margaret.

  12. Definitely different- wonder who the artist was (and what he/she’d been smoking/ingesting/enjoying)

    1. Cathy, I wonder too about the artist. Whatever mood altering substance was taken during the planning, I don't see in the challenging end work.

  13. I like them, especially the last one. Murals make utilitarian things so much more interesting.

    1. JB, the substation was in a prominent place and would look rather plain without the murals.

  14. I never see images like that in my imagination.

    1. Most of us wouldn't TP, bur clearly some do and that pleases me.

  15. Surreal! I love them. A merger of technology and nature.

  16. I like them but don't have any idea what the story is that they may be telling.

  17. The second one appears to be a snake, the third one a fish/tree. Very Dali like I think. Thanks for participating in Monday Murals Andrew
