‘What Do I Think About Art’

    1. Thank you Kate. It is interesting to see how people think of the same art piece but with different twists to their interpretations. This was actually a different kinda tag for me to take part in. Please consider yourself tagged if you feel like participating in it too 🙂

  1. Yay!! I’m glad you did the tag, it’s so much fun to analyse art. Like you said, art is individual, we all see and interpret something different in it. I loved reading your words about the art I picked. He does seems to have a smug or ‘witchy’ air around him 😀

  2. My Demelza daughter is just about to graduate Liverpool with her Batchelors in Fine Art and my Saskia daughter starts her own Art Degree in September. Therefore, you might understand, I have spent much time analysing the work of others, if only in my head. It’s probably best it stays there ? xx

    1. Thanks Mia, I am having an awful lot of fun 🙂 I am also terrible at deducing art but I just give it a go nonetheless and reveal my silliness. It is okay to be silly, isn’t it? It takes care of the stresses in life xx


  4. I wonder if this street art was done in Wynwood, Miami. I’m almost positive that I’ve seen it in person. Anyhow, I love the piece. For me, it represents a couple of things. One, the artist’s ability to create new worlds even in the one in which we are living. It’s just incredible that the artist saw this same wall that everyone else saw and imagined such a striking collaboration.
    Secondly, I feel that the image represents how we can all connect with nature in our way. It is a part of who we are whether we accept it or not. We can’t separate ourselves from it. I also like how black culture is represented here. Growing up, I saw black guys picking their afros on a regular basis, and it’s just not something that we see in mainstream media. Here is a regular activity for many people turned into art. I’m in awe of how art has a way of showing us the beauty in our own existence. I hope this all makes sense; I’m trying to condense my thoughts. This has been for some time one of my favorite pieces of street art because of it’s cleverness, I can’t believe I got to see it here being appreciated! So cool.

    1. It makes sense oh so beautifully. I am guessing you gave me your deduction of Angela’s piece 🙂 It might be very well from your part of the world. I connect with that bit you say about art showing us the beauty that exists in this world. Do black guys pick on their afros really? I shall keep my eyes peeled for such sights then. I have spotted people with dreadlocks more so often itching their scalps surreptitiously 😉

      1. I say when I was younger because afros were more in style then. You know black people and our constantly changing styles, lol. Nowadays you won’t see it too often, but my daughter just cut her hair recently and has a little afro which she picks before leaving the house. You’ll see her hair in some upcoming posts. She looks freaking adorable, if I do say so myself. 🙂

      2. Hahaha cute! I would love to see her afro and I can surely believe the last. Proud mothers are sweet. My mother can be so critical 😛 The other day she took a look at my watsapp profile photo and said, “Surely you look better than that!” Need I say more.

      3. Haha, my mom just a few hours ago stared at my mouth and said, “You must’ve been to the dentist thank goodness. Your teeth look way better.” I got them whitened like 2-3 months ago. So yeah, mine says stuff like that all the time too.

  5. Wonderful! You photographed Mata Ruda’s mural! He’s such an amazing artist and the mural definitely reflects his origins in Venezuela. The well-worn face of the anonymous man may show that he has worked hard his whole life and the hummingbird usually symbolizes a messenger of life or death in the Spanish culture. Whether he is contemplating a lived life or his impending death is up to the viewer. Anyways, that’s only my opinion – Neek.

    1. Your interpretation makes perfect sense. You explain the connotations and put it in perspective so well. I shall read up on Mata Ruda. This is a part of increasing my knowhow, of this melting pot of cultures that America is, as I start walking the streets of Jersey City. Thank you for indulging me and opening my eyes to the artist too xx

  6. Dear Dippy-Dotty Girl, or whatever your name is, I am none other than Detective Tony Pastry of New Scotland Yard. My informant has told me that you are the Red Herring, the notorious art thief. And my informant is very reliable: He recently sold me the Moon for £500 and a pint of mild. He’s very big in NASA, you know. He has also informed me that the Pink Panther films are not fictitious but are in fact a series of documentaries about a real Inspector Clouseau. Since then I have modelled my entire career on Clouseau’s achievements and it has not been easy, I can tell you. If you do not immediately hand yourself in at the nearest police station, I will have to come and put you under arrest.

    1. Oh hello Detective Pastry, I think my organisation (I should not even mention that they are one) has given me the dossier on you. I am sorry about what’s going to happen. I pray that you find your way to a safe cabin in the woods of Norway rather than be the prey.

      Do not kindly send me a postcard for I am still part of the operation. I swear upon the sacred world of blogging to not let the cat out of the bag.

      Best wishes
      Dippy-Dotty Girl
