Monday Mural - Pop Art meets Andres

Today I present two murals painted in 2015 for the Art BGC festivalin Bonifacio Global City (BGC), Manila, both on C1 Building on 5th Avenue.

The main one entitled "Pop Art" by AKA Corleone, a Portuguese artist that I've shown here before, and the other entitled "Andres" by Doppel, a Japanese artist, which honours Andres Bonifacio for which this city is named after.
He was the Father of the Philippine Revolution against Spain and is considered a National hero.

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 mural bloggers.  Looking forward to your mural finds this week.  Thanks, Sami. 



Pop Art and Andres around the corner

Andres mural wasn't easy to photograph as it was in a narrow passage between buildings, but I've included a photo I found online where it can be perfectly seen, obviously taken from higher up.

I've also found this short video of the mural being painted, which is fascinating to watch.

  3. Hi Sami,
    The linky tool didn't work for me today. I tried several times (around noon EST in North America). My mural post is here:

  10. Both murals are beautiful. The Andres piece was lovely, and I can see how hard it must have been to capture.

  13. That's an interesting one though I cannot decide which part to prefer!

  15. Of interest to mural lovers: a news story in Ha'aretz, the Israeli newspaper online:
    "Israeli Cities Commissioning Street Art to Draw Tourists, Boost Housing Prices:
    Having realized that graffiti raises real-estate prices, attracts tourism and beautifies urban spaces, cities throughout Israel are hiring artists they once hounded"

    Many illustrations, but the story might be behind a paywall.

    1. Very interesting Mae. I also find that murals seem to attract people who enjoy street art, so good on the Israeli cities from embracing it.

  16. Dearest Sami,
    That video is impressive to see the absolute stunning craftsmanship of such great artist!
    The entire view is fabulous in that city section, it blends in so well.
    Thanks for showing us.
