Part IV of XII of the interregnum: Genoa's underbelly

Graffiti image of part of a girl from the old town centre of Genoa, Italy.Dear Gentle Reader,

I live in Gotham.

I might even write about that, one day. But not now.

While I am not offering written fluff, for three weeks, I am providing a pictorial view of the underbelly of cities. Today, Genoa, and it's girly day.

Genoa (Genova in Italian) is a fantastic city with a rich history of conquest, exploration, and occupation. But the humble scribe has no time to write until May 18, as an e-interregnum is currently in effect as previously noted here.

So, instead, a head-level look at the popular art. And by popular art, I mean art by the populous.

By the people.

A series of graffiti shots.

Your humble scribe may add commentary after May 18. We'll see. But, till then, each picture counts as 1000 words.


Tschuess,
Chris

As per always,
on every post,
on this blog,

putting the mouse over the picture reveals the captions.

And these postings are all automated,

as your humble scribe will not be back until 18 May.

But,

I will be keen

to read

what

YOU

choose

to say.

Graffiti is true public art. See you later.

They all seem to be of a very similar style.

WOW...look at the variety of expression that are captured.

Barbara Martin said...

Pouty girl actually appears like she's puckering her lips to be kissed.

Dear Debra,

I couldn't agree more.


Dear Travis,

Two artists, five snaps...


Dear Cloudia,

It suits you! I assume that you are successful in your street outreach work and I would imagine that you relate well to those kids, as I suspect you do with most people. Pouty Girrl/Empathetic Woman...


Dear T and S,

That was precisely what caught my eye, T and/or S.


Dear Barbara,

That is what a pout is for, non?



Tschuess,
Chris
