Monday Mural - Faces

Two murals of faces painted by the same artist in the suburb of Le Panier in Marseille, France, taken when I visited the city in September 2017.
The daughter of an artist, Manyoly dreamed of becoming a psychologist but became an artist instead. She's mainly self taught, and usually paints on canvas using brushes and rich water colours.
When she doesn't have permission to paint directly on the walls, she paints on paper which she then pastes on the walls.



If you like murals or have a mural you'd like to post, this meme is for you; just follow the Linky steps below.  Once you start looking you find murals everywhere.  
Be sure to link back to this blog and visit your fellow posters.  Looking forward to your mural finds posted this week.  Thanks.

  6. Most impressive finds. I was in awe of the fact she painted on paper and added the paintings to the walls. Her work needs to be noticed.

    It's for a long time I had any mural (or graffiti). So your side was new to me. But any way, I like this. And your faces looks great.
