Monday Mural - Party time

At the entrance to the Rácskert ruin pub at 40 Dob Street in District VII/ Jewish Quarter,  there is a mural on either side - the on the left, made of mosaic tiles and called "Street Art Gallery"  by Hungarian artist Márton Hegedűs, painted in 2014 for the Colourful city Budapest Festival, and the one on the right is called "Love thy neighbour" the letter sitting behind a red heart, and was painted by UK artist Luke Embden.

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




Indoors, there was a wall with another mural in black and white - which I just photographed from the entryway.

  3. Wonderful finds, Sami. I didn't realize the eyes were mosaics until I saw the close-up. That interior (B & W) shot is a style I fell in love with.

  4. Very impressive mosaic works. Did you visit with a book, Murals of Budapest? I can't even remember seeing murals there.

    1. No book of murals at all Andrew, in fact all of the murals I photographed were found when we were on our way to breakfast or dinner. The ones I saw at night I wrote down the address and on our last day I photographed them. I think most of the murals were in the Jewish Quarter where we stayed.
      My eye is already trained to search for murals, lol, as my family didn't spot them either :)

    1. I think most of the murals I photographed in Budapest were in the Jewish Quarter, a very quaint, artistic suburb.

  7. Oh yes, ones I remember. I liked the Hesztia watchful one.
    And the ruin bar was closed when I was there, so it's good to get a peek inside,

    1. We didn't go inside for a drink, we were on our way to dinner, but we also had a ruin bar just across the road from our accommodation.

  11. This mural composed of mosaics is quite amazing. Street art becomes something very sophisticated when it is no longer clandestine. Have a nice week
