Boras - Street Art 7

 

"Lakwena Maciver is a London-based artist exhibiting work internationally, both in galleries and in the public environment. Her work is inspired by adornment, and its use and power as a means of communication. Informed by decoration both aesthetically and conceptually, she explores the messages that decoration is used to communicate, its traditional use in worship and myth-making and how this translates into contemporary popular culture." (From the No Limit website)

Seems a little puffed up with self-importance, Tom!
Tom Wilson: I think she's drawing attention to the fact that none of us is 'free', Ray smile

An excellent example of street art -look at the extravagant letter W!
Tom Wilson: Yes, quite striking in the situation.
A pleasing way to make her point
Tom Wilson: Indeed it is.

Excellent work here Tom. That phrase certainly makes one think.
Tom Wilson: Yes, it does, doesn't it - drawing attention to the fact that none of us is 'free'!

Interesting street art.
Tom Wilson: No Limit has produced some very interesting stuff in Borås. This is, I think, the third event and there are now about 30 works of art around the city.

I think it is a very positive work, Tom
I certainly love graphic art but this one does nothing for me. To each her own, of course.

Um... quite! I often raise my eyes to the heavens when I read some critical review of something; often it bears no relation to what I saw smile
