I prefer Brazilian walls


You may have seen this art installation attributed to Banksy, and that the hedges were pruned to be less unruly. See below.

The way trends are, you’d think Banksy would do this with no vine at all.

Or maybe a landing strip.

Or how about a valentine.

Here’s to your Friday becoming more of a Hump Day.

Hoping for change-altering street art


Sheikh Rihan mural

Following deadly clashes in Tahrir that erupted last November, and resumed more than once after that, which have left over 50 civilian protesters killed, SCAF, the military ruling junta of Egypt has built walls around Tahrir square and its side streets to prevent protesters from passing around. More than 4 walls have been erected, turning Downtown Cairo to a maze-like area with citizens forced to find longer routes to cross the obstacles.

Egyptian graffiti artists arranged a No Walls protests last Friday (March 9, 2012), where they painted the walls away into stunning murals to commemorate the dead and protest the obstacles built by painting eye-deceiving, virtual continuations to the blocked streets (Trompe-l’œil). Almost every wall around the area was painted on by young artists who joined hands and brushes for over 3 days, turning the area into a lasting memorial.

Via and more importantly here.

This kicks ass … you should watch it.
