Image 06/21/10 "What's Up?" was the first thing on my mind early last Thursday morning, as I joined the group of the gathered together in the middle of the street. The focus of their attention was the newest addition yet to the RayStArt collection! This particular graphic was done in Bright Silver and it took full advantage of the dark rough asphalt background! The Artist's bold sweeping style was the first thing that caught everyones eye.

Our lively discussion of style, technique and intent was then interrupted again by another fast approaching motorist, who slowed down just enough to give us both their horn & their impressions but sadly not of the graphic, before stepping on the gas leaving all us in swirl of his dust...

As each of us pondered the Artist's intent, one by one the local critics shared their opinions. One muttered, " that's kinda' Sensual" pointing quickly to the way they felt the "body parts" were connected. Another disagreed, saying, "3-2-1", pointing to the numbers that appeared somehow connected to him. "Nope, It's Sci-Fi", said yet another. "Bet it won't last long" another said, his comment had everyone shaking their heads in general agreement; things go fast in North Park's Art District!

Yes, But it's faded a bit, like INTEREST all forms of NEW Art IN NP!


BTW: This "image" is just South of Gunn St. on Ray St. and is just one of a many images of Ray St Art.

it's alway so sad when that happens...i was involved for many years in Oregon with COART's...we had a State Art Show that traveled a rural route called ART came to our town every other summer over 4th of July

it was very popular...was judged and juried show...perhaps it was the rural aspect that made it so

we also drummed up interest in Art by loaning art to local businesses to be hung in the most visible place in their foyers...about 1 month before a show was opening

i'll come by and see ur street..i'm new back in San Diego and didn't even know it existed
