Last spring I wandered around the lanes of Fitzroy in Melbourne, intrigued by the street art and graffiti .
The above picture has a message that can be overlooked if eyes are pointed only straight ahead and focus rests only on the tags.
Style and technique ranged from powerfully realistic to naive simplicity, as for instance in these feline renditions. What also intrigued me was the play of textures, how the art and surface, shadow and light worked together.
Nature paints too.
But nature has the last say, when she whispers” Life is beautiful”.
