you saw, he's sore, we all saw the

eyesore?
this evening The Teen and the other two and I all went up to town to a really interesting live art event. . .. . .which took place, on one day only, in the loading bay underneath the Royal Albert Hall

now, you may or may not know, but the RAH is a round building and we had to walk 360 degrees, ending up where we'd started, before we found the loading bay. . .

(. . .under these steps)

now, you may or may not think that graffiti is art*, but what we saw was very inspiring and quite beautiful
(it took - I believe - four days hard graft
by nine individuals to accomplish)

as the following indicates, by a graffer (graffiti artist) named EyeSaw. . .

(I think he was inspired by Rockwell, don't you?
strange, to think that Rockwell might have inspired graffiti, eh)

(*altho I'm not going to debate that here**
or start a discussion or argument. . .)

As long as you enjoyed it, you can call it what you like.

graffiti can be amazing art...maybe not something I'd want my kids to pick up on...but still...

ZigZ from what we saw I can vouch for the fact that there are some very talented graffiti artists around

katherine. I have already had a word with The Teen about that. . .

. . .a subject on which the less I say the better

Whoa.

I'm sure it's a good thing that it was under the steps.....right?
Kinda added to the 'feel' of the exhibit?

It's way cool.
WAY cool!!

Yaknow, I have some very vivid memories of himself driving like a bat out of hell to get us to RAH on time for the concert's beginning...... *happy sigh*

It's Hump Day!

And it's Summer!
Happy Summer Hump Day to you?

Mel being in an underground heavy duty working area, dim in places, dark in corners, no natural light, but a huge ceiling creating a sense of space nonetheless, really did make it feel just right. . .

like a bat out of hell, you say? did you go see Meat Loaf (!) or something classical? I've been invited to a prom at the end of the month, which I'm very much looking forward to! (Himself'll explain what a prom is, if you're English isn't up to it. . .!!)

The Teen had the hump with me this morning, does that count?!

Mel said...

Classical, of course! LOL Did Meatloaf play at RAH? Just curious...

And I'll interrupt himself, who's on a project with the train layout. I'm sure he'll be pleased with the interruption. *snickering* He's been working a while--he needs a break! ;-)

I, Like The View said...

oooooh!! his trains. . .

how exciting!

(the hall is used for loads of top pop/rock gigs - Cream, Clapton, The Stones)

Oh well done the Royal Albert. What an excellent idea.
