I was looking for the bus terminal in Sevilla when I saw this graffiti. I have not idea what is this building. Usually I hate graffitis but when it is artistic and when it makes ugly building attractive, then I like them.
I hope you will like it too.
I still use only my netbook and can't see my photos on the bigger screen and use my software, because my monitor doesn't work. And I have some urgent work to do, so in order not to be tempted to spend a lot of time with photos, I do not go to the service.

I am not a fan of graffiti either, but I agree that here it does does much to brighten up the drab surroundings. I like the presence of the lady walking toward the steps, who adds a human touch to the scene. Fine technical presentation.

I do like graffiti when it has been done well as it has been here. I love your inclusion of the hand rail in the foreground and the person in mid ground walking past the graffiti. It is a great capture.
I think though that the image could be simplified and enhanced by cropping the image precisely at the left edge of the building. Just an opinion.

Hello Malgo ,
Superb artistic work ! That is so much better than sad grey concrete buildings .

have to agree this is graffiti that is both eye-catching and beautiful. I hate the meaningless scribble but this is so more worthwhile and inspiring. Well captured.

Attractive painted mural, the young child and perhaps surrounded by dream symbols ? I agree with disliking graffiti, and do like murals when approved first.
Unfortunately too often, at least in the U.S. beautiful art murals are diminished by vandals painting their graffiti crap over the artworks. And I note some graffiti crap to the right of this mural.
Thanks for sharing,
PS: Even though I am a member of the Sierra Club, I normally do day hikes and sleep at night in a camper or hotel. My backpack is getting rusty and I plan to use it again when I can.
Fortunately many spur roads lead into the high elevations of the Eastern Sierra Nevada, eliminating the need to hike long distances.

Imponujące, dobre graffiti może się podobać, ale nie wszystkie bazgroły, to Twoje jest z jakims konceptem

I agre with you, I am not always fond of grafiti, but here it looks like it has turned a really ugly building into a complete work of art. It was a brilliant idea to include the person in the scene as it shows the scale of this work. Very nicely seen, a talented artist create this and a taletnted photographer shared it :)

Pelny wypas kolorystyczny na Twoim zdjęciu. Kolorystycznie oczu nie można oderwac choc artystycznie raczej na kolano nie powala, ale warto wiedziec ze cos takiego w Sewilli jest.
Chyba pokaze kiedys jakies grafiti z miasta w srodku Polski;)

The graffiti decorate the city and offer interesting photographic opportunities, as in this case! Brava to put in even a human presence!
Best Regards, Nino.

Hello Malgo - I agree with your sentiments about graffiti when it is mindless scrawling but there are many examples of excellent work produced by talented and creative individuals. I'd rather see this than huge commercial advertising hoardings any day.
This was well spotted and from what you show here beautifully executed. A modern fresco perhaps?
ikeharel (58231) 2014-05-29 11:27
An amazing graffiti work, Malgo.
Vivid in colors and texture, subject a bit debateable - yet a fine photo taken.

The sleeping baby and a walking baby.The graffiti has a lot of life.Very well done.TFS.

This is a beautiful and colorful graffiti. Graffitis are not very often nice, but this one is a a kind of artistic work.
holmertz (41753) 2014-05-29 13:16
There is a great difference between "criminal" graffiti and artistic graffiti. This kind I like very much. The woman walking by doesn't do anything but she improves the photo just by being there.
I'm having a good time in Poland, but the weather isn't normal. First too hot, now too cold.
The food makes up for the discomfort. I only fear that my BMI will be ruined before I go home.
Greetings from Gdansk.
carlo62 (33803) 2014-05-29 13:54
è difficile anche chiamarlo graffito, questo sembra un vero e proprio affresco.
Molto bravo l'artista e, come dici tu, ha sicuramente reso più bella questa costruzione.
Ottimo l'inserimento della donna e del suo passo deciso.
PS prova a venire in Toscana, qui non piove....per adesso

superbe capture de ce magnifique graffiti. Excellente photo.

A happy find...don't you love coming across an unexpected opportunity like this? Sometimes it pays to not know where your going. :) I agree with you 100%, graffiti is generally a nuisance and unattractive, but when done in an artistic and well planned manner such as this, it makes for an appealing visual and fun subject to photograph. Full of rich colors, scenes and personal interpretations. Glad you "stumbled" upon this one, it's make for a bright and impactful image. Have a great day ahead. Take good care.

Malgo, the biggest graffiti park in the world is here in San Diego in Barrio Logan but your image from Sevilla is very representative of the Spanish graffiti that they also very creative, colorful and interesting!!
a nice and happy image!!
jjcordier (76858) 2014-05-29 22:17
Ce graffiti "institutionnalisé" est un bel hommage rendu à ces artistes de rue souvent décriés.
Graal (97861) 2014-05-29 23:24
niezwykle graffiti. Pomyslowo wykorzystana powierzchnia tej budowli. Kolorowo sie zrobilo, obraz przyciaga wzrok. Fajny panoramiczny kadr.

Bonjour, chère Malgo,
Voilà des graffiti qui ont toute leur place sur cette architecture.
Les peintres ont du talent.
Très bonne journée.

Dośc niezwykłe grafitti - warto tam było pojechac choćby dlatego - super fotka!
kasianowak (6853) 2014-05-30 5:47
Rzeczywiscie, bardzo ciekawe i warte uwiecznienia graffiti. Ladne nasycone kolory i dobrze pokazana skala tej dziwnej architektury.

It certainly looks interesting and you were right at your decision of taking a picture of it!
Colors, light, horizontal format, level of sharpness, chosen pov and composition truly pleased me!
TFS - congrats,

This is the most beautiful graffiti I have ever seen. I love your wide angle composition and the inclusion of the person walking in front, adding a really artistic element to it, aswell as a sense of dynamism. The light and colours are delightful. Excellent work.
Thanks for sharing, have a beautiful Sunday
macjake (57074) 2014-06-11 7:28
its surprising to see that you enjoy this building, because I remember you saying you don't like graffiti.
but you're correct too, because it makes the building look so much more attractive, in a good way.
glad you captured this scene, especially with the woman walking by too - did you wait for someone to walk by on purpose?
fun shot, works well.
fritzi007 (6125) 2014-06-24 12:49
