Teal Thursday

Found these teal patches a few weeks ago and just got the chance to snap some fotos.
This mural is alongside McAllister at Divis, right at the west bound Muni bus stop for the 5.

I'm assuming the teal is covering up graffiti but I am completely in love with the unintentional junction and the uneven combination of the blocky teal/mural contrast as a result.

April 2010, 2.5 years ago that same wall (and that pink cursive 'divisadero' lettering) looked like this:

  2. Hi Meli! Yes, the teal patches are covering random tags. I thought it was a little goofy at first, but the patches have grown on me and the random tags, if left as they were, just made the whole thing look dirty. I dream a 'hidden layer', to come through on these patches, but who knows what's next.

  4. there's a beautiful mural painted by my friend jet martinez at the now closed plantit earth on divis/grove. it has similar but not as complementary and carefully painted patches covering part of it up.
