create

After several trips driving back and forth past an old armoury, a school and a church searching for the location of a mural-in-progress, we finally found it. It didn't make sense to me to drive around the back, but what do I know. Turns out the 'school' is now apartments for artists (click to see info) and behind that is a studio
and at the back of that is where we found the Swiss- based muralists 
Onur & Wes21 creating their work for Rochester's Wall Therapy mural project.
not many people will get to see this masterpiece, but it may be inspiring for the other artists who live/work at this address.
a find for signs, signs
and image-n-ing for Wordless Wednesday

  1. That's really cool - won't you show us the finished project once it's completed?

  3. They seem to take their murals quite seriously in Rochester judging by all the ones that Tom shows us. Love the sign.

    1. I've always been fascinated watching someone painting or drawing - they often move to what seems like random places as they work (but I assume it makes sense to them, if not to me!)

    1. There was a plain 'LIVE' sign at the rear entrance to the apartment building that complemented the 'COLLABORATE' sign, but I didn't take that one for some reason.
