Beautiful paint and ink

This is the current mural on the graffiti wall over at Mother Fool's, and I have to say, it's absolutely stunning. I'm fairly certain I've seen work by this artist around before--it's a distinctive style--and it's all been just as good. I'm always amazed at the different technqiues and levels of detail that some folks can reach with the spray can.

Besides being fabulous in its own right, the mural presents a fresh, new style for MoFo's wall that has been needed for a very long time.

We need many, many new walls like MoFo's. Too few walls is an invitation to stagnation, as the history of MoFo's wall shows.

And there are many, many blank walls in our inexcusably dismal city for unapproved public art that could and should blossom with art.

A big blank wall is an outrage, a crime against creativity, especially in a city like Madison that is full of artists and that is claimed by many, including many hypocrites in political power and the business establishment. to be an artful place.
