Street whimsy

A very different kind of art from yesterday's post. This motley crew adorns one end of the pedestrian overpass beside Citimall in Quezon City.

That's pretty cute. Like it's been inspired by Pokemon.

How are you enjoying August?

Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comment. Come visit again tomorrow!

I really like this type of street art. It dresses what would normally be a boring gray.

Nice to look at when passing that overpass. Have a nice day!

belle peinture murale, on dirait un Manga

Sorry to say I had to laugh in spite of myself! Do you think this was a commissioned piece or is it merely the work of some graffiti artist?

Randy said...

Cool artwork!

Francisca said...

Whimsy describes this perfectly, and whether commissioned or graffiti, this works for me. Like bfarr said, it adds to an otherwise plain urban wall.

Tamera said...

Don't you just love finding random bits of urban art like this? I would love to do a Harajuku-inspired fashion shoot in front of that wall! :o)

I think they add so much to a cityscape.

Hi Hilda! Re your comment on Ocala DP: This was a relatively small horse farm indeed. We have another one close to where we live that is 800 acres and another just north of us that is over 600 acres!

Colorful and cute!

Thank you Hilda for your information about San Ignacio de Loyola. It was really useful.

«Louis» is surprised that B SQUARED didn't comment on your competing with his mural shots!.

Have to agree with Joy and completely thought of my son's (now dusty) Pokemon card collection! Sweet find.

Misalyn said...

i thought you're talking about the band ( motley crue) but of course, that's another spelling. ^0^

I like this kind of art. We are seeing more of it here just lately.

I like this much more than the other kind of pompous absurdities. This is something real, nice and quite well done.

George said...

Actually, I rather like this whimsical mural.

Kaori said...

Why do they have such mean eyes?

Pam said...

I see a lot of wonderful artistry here, Hilda. Its so playful, I love it.

Chuck Pefley said...

Wonderful fun art. Our world needs more of this!

mia said...

Haha this is cute! Weird but cute. At least it's different from the typical dreary overpass/underpass we usually see around here.
