the lady with blue eyes

21 Jun


– THE DEBUNKD. CITY –


I love that someone took the time to paint this image of a peculiar looking lady, on the concrete slab of an unfinished condo on Bay Street. Perhaps I’m a sentimental, but things like this make my mind wander. It conjures ideas of ‘permanence,’ ‘beauty  underneath the skin,’ and how instantaneous life can be. It’s a sad notion, that soon she’ll be covered with walls and materials – never to be seen again. She’ll be among everything else that is branded and obscured on Bay Street.

    hehe…this is great…

    mind you tho, graffiti is a form of branding in itself…

    and dont be sad…
    shes in a good place…
    soon she WILL be covered…
    perhaps a treasure for someone to reveal in the far future…
    the lady with blue eyes exists…
    more permanent than the materials and walls…

    So true… it will be there forever, even after the walls come down…

    Not that peculiar.

    I have LOADS of women in my life that look like that! 🙂

    If I am that developer, I’d keep the thing exposed and charge for that condo on the premise of “original art”. there are throngs of bobos that would fork out to “have that”.
