Artist captures artist - My world


Murial it's a mural

My World



It has finally stopped raining, but I did say I would be treating you to some point and shoot camera work rather than the fancy footwork of the big almighty bow down to the power of the Nikon images. So I had better stick to my guns (camera ones, obvioulsy) hadn't I. So my world this week is photographing the artist at work.



You may recall this place from way back last year. on Parliament Street. At the time it was an empty space made way by the demolition of a building with hoarding around which the the school kids had painted on see here for that shot. Rumours abounded as to what this plot was to be, a hotel to replace the grand, a restaurant, a picnic garden. Well it has been turfed over(grass to you) and there are benches. Always full at lunchtime and seems to be a regular meeting place now. One thing having the little point and shoot is you can whip the thing out slyly, take a pic, and pop back in the handbag before anyone is aware. Here is the artist at work on whatever that mural will turn 0ut to be. Luck would have it I was this way, and got to snap the ongoing job at work. Of course I will bring you the finished article, well I will if I can sneak another incognito pic.


More works of my world art can be found here

Taking some time out to concentrate on a couple of little projects and catch up with friends. Let's just say one involves a camera and self portraits and the other the past and hunting for photos. Both involve my time, and my alcohol.

Looking forward to the finished versions sometime down the road.
Cheers!

Better than the blank wall that was there.

Reader Wil said...

can you tell what it is yet? Interesting idea of using blue. Is it a subconscious statement by the artist to say that living on the IOM makes him unhappy.

The mural looks almost like a pattern from blue delft tiles. Great capture.

Babooshaka: What a neat look at the wonderful mural. Are they going to add other colors?

Small City Scenes said...

Love the bright blue. Don't forget to shoot the finished product--not the painter (artist). MB

Jacob said...

Now that looks like a great mural...perhaps you can post a photo when it's all completed!

Janie said...

Nice work with your secretive capture. I'll be interested to see the finished mural.

Brit Gal Sarah said...

It's always fun to see a piece of artwork 'in progress'. So glad the rain has eased up on you!

Rajesh said...

Very lovely shot. Beautiful world.

Gaelyn said...

Nice natural capture. The P&Ss are good for something. I like the mural so far. Nice that a park area has been created instead of a new building.

Lew said...

Nice shot! I'm guessing it's a blue forest.

I like it better than not having anything there

I enjoy seeing art on the walls in places such as this. I wonder if it will be left blue, as someone says above, like a delft tile - or if this is getting the bones down and other colours will follow. Look forward to seeing the completed work.

I love public art, and (great minds run....) I have also posted a mural today!

Arija said...

I like seeing men at wolk!!!

Jackie said...

Cool photo, I'm glad they're doing something with the empty space.

Per Stromsjo said...

Looks like one classy mural-to-be. Would have been nice to enlarge.

Birdman said...

Ha! I can see the 'love' of the artist for his work... getting into it. But that's a LONG day for the guy holding that ladder! Nice shot.

antigoni said...

Great art! I liked the graffiti on the wall by the kids, too.

Greyscale Territory said...

A very promising piece of artwork, looking stunning in blue silhouette! Even the guy holding the ladder steady is intriguing! He doesn't look like an artist! Interesting shot!

Hyde DP said...

work in progress - good to see.

Barb said...

Fun shot of the blue work-in-progress. I like it set against the green grass. Cheers to you, Babooshka!

Larry D said...

Nice work, looks like an interesting mural.

Life with Kaishon said...

I love this picture. Very cool! So glad you were able to take a picture of the process!

magiceye said...

seems to be on the way to being a fine mural

Keropok Man said...

Wow, that's nice.
I don't think I can ever draw something so big and so nice!

Lisa Wilson said...

Nice shot! I love the color. Sorry I haven't commented on your blog in so long. I thought things would calm down around here with the beginning of school, but they haven't!

Mojo said...

Wow... that's some piece of work there! I see Sandy hasn't seen it yet... I'll have to pass this on to her. Nice point-and-shooting ;)

Sharodindu said...
