Creepy Street Art

Street Art, Rome, Italy

When I was in Italy in October, I was fascinated—if that is the right word—by some of the creepy street art. Florence in particular had lots of graffiti art on the side streets of the historic center. I just don’t understand graffiti/street art. The shot from Rome is actually part of a store front.

I didn’t see much in Rome but there was a lot of it (small things, not whole walls) in the side streets of Florence. Much of it looked like it was paper glued to the walls but there was a lot of over painting to cover some up.

Wow. Thanks for your link. I saw a number of the ones with the goggles but didn’t notice the road signs. I didn’t notice the Blurb ones were signed. I tried to “like” your post but can’t find a way to do it. 🙂

Some street art is just not understandable – and some of it is very creepy – good choices, Marie! What sticks in my mind is the drawing of the woman in the last image but one. The colour hues and the way the wall is falling apart – and how it is used for the drawing. I would like to know the story behind it.
