Last Sunday, the Western world celebrated women.
I couldn’t help thinking it was so hypocritical… Do women around the world get the help they deserve and need during the rest of the year? What about men who may also need it? It is sad that we still have to hold this kind of events to remind ourselves that not everyone is considered equal.
I’m not going into this any further. I just thought I’d share here the picture below, which I took near Camden Market, in North London. This painting is one of those street art examples which crop up in the hardest places to access by anyone, let alone an artist who may need some room to maneuvre. It was on top of a building and it looked like a woman. In fact it’s the portrait of Zabou, the street artist, by Ala Niz.
The quality is not as good as I would’ve wanted (Nexus 4 doesn’t have a great camera). But, I quite like the perspective that the glare on the right hand side adds to this picture. Hope you like it.
You can check out one of Zabou’s artworks in London in my next blog entry. It isn’t too far from this portrait in London.
Thanks for checking this week’s picture Wednesday out! Did you like it?
