    Before I read your change of rule now, I was at the Zeitz MOCAA art museum this morning and thought of you all.
    In the museum's shop on the way out, I walked past this excellent photographic book, documenting urban art (and decay)

    I am truly sorry to hear about your life being rather challenging at the moment; I do hope that things will soon become more tolerable and settle down.
    Thank you for the time you've taken to be here on this forum.

    Belgian street artist Bart Smates Smeets has completed a beautiful 400m2 new wall-piece in Cape Town this November.

    New chapter will be written. Stay strong, stay healthy.
    I don't have my dad anymore and wish from time to time to have a mom that I can fall back on.

    If there's an option to give a thousand "likes" in show of support, I would not hesitate to click it.
    Best of luck!

    It is strange to find such a violent image depicted. As per @Mike7 's comment, I would not like to live there either.
    Usually public art is either uplifting or providing a (less macabre!) message - this seems to do neither.

    I have done a search and found this very interesting commentary about the hanging man work:

    Thanks for posting the link Irene, I found it interesting that it was taken from a historical painting and to a certain point I wonder if the reaction was similar to when the original painting was viewed by the public?

    I'm amazed that the graffiti (let alone two works) were done at night by the same artist on such an inaccessible spot without drawing attention to it by the local authorities.

    I for one would be pretty upset if I was the building owner, who at some point, must deal with the cost of remediation of the building...

    Defacing someone's property, without the owner's approval, is the wrong way to make a public statement. IMHO
