24. It’s a Mail/Male Thing (Week 17)

My mother said to me, ‘If you are a soldier, you will become a general. If you are a monk, you will become the Pope.’ Instead, I was a painter, and became Picasso. ” ~ Pablo Picasso ~

Neither rain, nor sleet, nor – no wait – that’s for delivering mail, not painting a building!  I guess it’s nice to put on a fresh face sometimes!

Recently I came across these men giving the Post Office branch on Siesta Drive a fresh coat of paint and they consented to be photographed.  Maybe I should start passing out cards so our subjects they can look themselves up??!!

47. The S Curve (Week 9)

It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see. ” ~ Henry David Thoreau ~

After spotting this “S” on the side of a building on South Pineapple Avenue in the Historical Burns Square area downtown, I did a little research to find out a bit about the artist.  Pixel Pancho prefers spray cans and a blank wall to brushes and canvas.  He likes robots and painting, so he combines the two.  Italy-born and with formal training studying at the Academy of Fine Arts in Valencia, where he received his degree, he is a rising star among street muralists.  He’s painted his whimsical robots all over the world, including Paris, Amsterdam, Warsaw, and Istanbul.  Pixel Pancho created this piece when he was invited to the Sarasota Chalk Festival in 2012.
