Award Shortlist   


By Buffalo_Tom
This image is one of a series of wall paintings close to the hotel we were staying in Agadir.There were about 40 of these paintings along this wall depicting typical Moroccan/Arabic life all painted by 3 artists.
Bassis,Hassas and Sjoudi.
This is the first in a series which I will post over the next few days.Straying out of my comfort zone with this shot.
I love grafitti images but these are all painted not with aerosol colours and I think these images have been commissioned by the local authorities.
Anyway I hope you like them as much as I do.Probably not to everyones taste.
Please view large if you can.

Beatuiful vibrant colours to this amazing piece of artwork.
I love the way they have painted the face, so that it looks almost hollow with the background shining through,to emphasize the eyes, nose & mouth.
Very "halloween"
Look forward to seeing some more.

You have to go large to see just what a wonderful piece of work this is. You then get the wall texture overlayed with a superb and colourful image. Love it Tom.

Love graffiti/mural art too. In Sydney (Aust) they're commissioning local artists to paint traffic signal boxes (and other utilities) to prevent them from being attacked with graffiti or posters.
