Die Happy

Mural of a woman's face with a speech bubble saying "Die happy tonight"

The lettering in the speech bubble is great, a little bit of calligraphy in the hand written style. Having the woman’s eyes closed also brings emotion to this large piece.

A large mural on a bridge overpass. Really like the color and modern abstract patterns. Not sure why we can’t paint everything in the city this way.

Angel of the City

Another shot from our roving reporter, @hopemanbob. I really like that this large mural portrays both sides, the savior and the destroyer, full of both peace and war. The monotone color palette also really helps to emphasize this dichotomy.

Belgrade, Serbia.

The Dove and the Wolf

Street mural of a dove flying up between a man and a snarling wolf

Wonderful detail in this street mural full of pathos and hope.  The wing breaking out of the frame is a great, subtle touch.

Apart Together

Cubist inspired street painting of a man and woman looking away from each other

So many great details in this piece. From the little heart lock on her lapel, the key in her hand, her Cubist inspired open eye, the heart tattoo on his arm to the tear on his cheek. Somehow the whole story is there to read.
