Drama on the streets

I”m so pleased to see that the subject of this week’s Thursday’s Special is Urban Art.  Wandering through the back streets of Faro a few weeks ago, I came upon this down-at-heel, ramshackle building.  It stopped me in my tracks. I’ve been wanting to share it ever since.

It’s a total jewel, transforming the corner of a drab street.  I hope Paula likes it.  I love a bit of drama.  Don’t you?

    1. It’s wonderful, isn’t it? Makes me want to burst into song, Cathy, tho’ I’m not sure which song 🙂 I’m sure it’s a reference to a Picasso or Dali? Must Google it when I’ve a minute. Been jaunting out and about all day. Did you finally decide what to do?

    1. I hate street scribble, Jude! Now you’re a knowledgeable lady! Tell me what that first lady references? Is it a Picasso I have in my head, that she’s based on? Wonderfully clever story telling, isn’t it? How’s it going? Reached put your feet up time again or back to Cornwall this weekend?

    2. No, I don’t think so, Jude, but thanks. Been jaunting about with Michael all day- part work, part play. I have the street address so I’ll Google it and find out about the artist if I can. Thanks a lot, hon. 🙂

  1. molti artisti potrebbero avere un livello molto più alto che di quello che a loro riserba la vita, ma è il mistero dell’arte

    1. Yes, I’ve featured Olhao before. 🙂 It does keep being added to. If you head from the railway station, east on Avenida da Republica, its at the junction of R. Ventura Coelho and Travessa Jose Coelho. We found it whilst wandering through the pedestrianised streets towards the Carmo church. It’s a great area for dilapidation and ‘character’. 🙂
