Day 5 of Becky’s lines & squares challenge… I’ve never been known as someone who likes ‘staying within the lines’. So I found the title of this challenge particularly interesting. Especially since I was visiting an art fair in town. Its location was more of a lure than anything else, as it was in the old Fokker Terminal (a 1,200 m2, 9m-high hangar, skirted by classrooms), which is situated in the old industrial area of the city (where, up until a few years back, you didn’t want to be found even dead.)
To my complete surprise I spotted this graffiti in the parking lot. It caught my eye for a number of reasons. It hasn’t been ruined (yet) by those pitiful people who spray their ‘signature’ over somebody else’s work. But moreover because this graffiti artist has made it a point to painstakingly color within the lines.
But what I found the most striking and beautiful example of staying within the lines is the art piece below. It’s by Katerina Belkina, represented by Gallery Lilja Zakirova.
One of those rare photos I wish I had taken.
But here are more photos that play to the tune of this edition of Becky’s lines & squares challenge.
And lastly, a different take on ‘lines’…
