Touring Art Friday

Friday's offering.


 This one mysteriously appeared overnight in an alley off the town centre in Horsham last week. Some locals have groused about it, but I like it and surely it's got to be a step up from the usual depictions of male genitalia we get round here. I wanted to capture an image of it as am not sure whether it will be painted over. It's obviously looking to Banksy for its inspiration....speaking of which I hope [she says keeping everything crossed] that I might have got to see at least one Banksy in its original setting by the time this goes live...hence the need for the scheduled posts this week. Have a great weekend folks.

  1. You do indeed find some remarkably beautiful, graceful, thoughtful art works. I wonder why people grouse about the well composed art; is art only meant to be viewed when you have paid a substantial ticket price to see it perhaps???

    1. It's because it's not been commissioned and is probably technically graffiti. In my humble opinion it improves a very dull stretch of wall in an unremarkable alleyway. Arilx

  2. Street art can be so beautiful! I loved going Banksy spotting in Bristol a few years ago - good luck! xxx

    1. We didn't have time to do a Banksy walk as we were on limited time, but am glad to report that we did come across one during our exploration of Bristol. Arilx

  3. I love that beautiful piece of art. So much nicer than hideous graffiti and I reckon that artist could sell his/her art in a gallery.
