What’s left of a Square Cat work on Şelari Street in the Old Town.
Remember the rudimentary drawn man with no lips? Lately I’ve been seeing him all over the city, administering his wisdom to whoever stops to look at him.
On the door of the summer theatre Capitol.
Alexandru Ciubotariu aka Ciubi is probably the most known graffiti artist in Romania. His signature is the “Square Cat” (Pisica Pătrată in Romanian), which is – as its name suggests – a sort of fantastical creature, shaped as a square. It can be seen on many walls in Bucharest and it’s become an urban brand. Back in January Ciubotariu became the first graffiti artist in Romania to have an album published. The album shows examples of the Square Cat’s appearances in Bucharest and a few other cities. I’ve already posted one incarnation of the Square Cat on this blog, back in September. Today’s photograph shows another one.
I’ve been trying to think of a reason as to why this rudimentary drawn man is singing to the tunes of Beatles’ “All my loving” but frankly your answer is as good as mine 🙂 Photographed in the Old Center.
I just realized it’s been some time since I posted a stencil graffiti, so I thought I have to remedy this situation. I think the image speaks for itself, no need to explain anything 🙂 I took this photo in the Old Center.
Joking bitterly about the flu pandemics of the last few years. I found this stencil in the Old Town, on Nicolae Tonitza Street.
I’m not sure what the idea is here, maybe some sort of role playing. But is it Woody that plays Mona Lisa or the other way around? I think it looks interesting nevertheless.
Apparently there’s a simple explanation for the fact that this building on Lipscani St. is in danger of collapsing. See below.
I guess you know by now that I like graffiti, since I’ve posting many examples of street art on this blog. I don’t like all of it, in general I like it if it’s witty or it has some sort of message, be it cultural, social or political. But in case of today’s example I have no idea what the street artist was trying to express here. I can say that I like its colors and that these look to me like some sort of hostile aliens. What do you think the artist was trying to say?
