    I like and enjoy all kinds of art, epic sculpture, urban street art, unique guerilla yarnbombs, fine arts, outsider art environments. If it invokes awe, questions, humor or humblest admiration, it interests me.

    My daughter is a professional chalk artist. She spends days doing an elaborate, gorgeous piece, only to have cars drive on it or the fire department hose it off. I was horrified til she explained that it’s the ephemerality that appeals to her.

    I read something the other day that one of the chalk pieces on the downs in southern England- the particularly well endowed male figure- is now tentatively being rethought as a medieval practical joke. I could totally see that. It reminds me of the time a bunch of male friends spent an hour in a stadium flipping seats so that when the crowd arrived for the event, they were greeted by the word BALLS in giant letters on the other side of the stadium.

    This one only took her a couple of hours.

    Is it weird that I've always had a bit of a crush on this painting... I mean, how weird?

    Thanks for sharing and the insight with the timing. I will definitely remember that tidbit when I make my way there.

    Your daughter possibly already knows about these street artists work, but I think they create some clever visual illusions. I like trompe l’oeil techniques in art.

    The artists name are: Julian Beever, Edgar Mullër and Eduardo Rolero.
