    My vote: Mural...

    It took a lot of work to paint that.. Sort of historical..in showing people coming to a place to settle.. Interesting and colorful.. better than blick..

    I think kids done that as a project. Doesn't look too bad from a distance. I love the murals, we need more. In Northern Ireland they are tourist attractions. They paint the gable end of houses with political statements and the like. Look good.

    That's a good one Lindy. Like 'em meself too. Should be more of them. Have you seen Banksys work around London. They are excellent.

    I like em (as long as we don't start getting Beatle ones everywhere or even worse..Llambananas)
    It would be great if we could get someone like Julian Beever to do a few of his fine works of art around the city (My brother tried to get this guy here for the Capitol Of Culture but things didn't happen!).
    If you don't know who Julian Beever is then check this out....

    Mural and I like it. It is art for sure.

    I am a big Julian Beever admirer for years.

    Zap, what's up with the Lambananas? I thought it was the best deal of Capitol of Culture.

    Such as a very interesting post, and sort of historical painting.

    Definitely a mural and a very nice one, too. I think this type of wall painting helps enliven a neighborhood. Such murals can be both fun and educational, so I would like to see more of them.

    Fine photograph, Joe, as ever.

    Cheers

    During the Brooklyn Museum exhibition Graffiti,the Museum has asked visitors to contribute designs inspired by the works of graffiti on a wall in the gallery designated. These photographs document the progress of the mural museum during the exhibition week.

    There's definitely a message to that colourful mural & I like it ,even if I dont fully get the message ! I fully agree with Zappa re the beatles & lambananas though,thought it was quite daft !
