Don’t ask me what this is. It seems to be a shrine to the memory of some young man.

You find it on the streets of Vienna, near the heart of the 7th district, in a corner right to some esoterics shop. Really, I have no idea, but I like it.

If you look carefully, you’ll see Jokerman in it, so obviously he was not a unique chalk drawing as I had supposed, but a rather a stencil or even a sticker. Oh well, the world is not what it used to be 🙂

The other image, well, I don’t show it for its artistic qualities. It’s only for the fact that it brazenly displays a very peculiar notion of “genuine”.

The Song of the Day is “In Memoriam” from the Finnish string quartet Apocalyptica’s 2001 album “Cult”. Hear it on YouTube.

  1. Your post work really works to bring out the strength of the forms and shapes as well as making the color literally jump off the screen. I for one, really like it! Peace, Glen

  2. Yeah, it's a strange place for a street corner, huh?

  3. Oh, it´s soo wonderful!! Thanx for sharing this. It came from someones heart… Sunniest greetings

  4. I've been there once again since, and fact is, I can't figure out who did it for whom. Of course I could go into the shop and ask, but otoh I like to keep it as a mystery 🙂
