Murals - Marseille Faces I

A mural from Le Panier Quarter in Marseille , taken when we visited the city in September 2017. 
Painted by a young French artist Manyoly. 
She's the daughter of an artist, and dreamed of becoming a psychologist but became an artist instead. Mainly self taught, she usually paints on canvas using brushes and 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.

  1. That face has so much rhythm and movement. The overall feel is a bit grunge art. Really unique entry, but one I found interesting.

  3. Interesting. I think I would be a bit afraid of a potential psychologist becoming an artist.

  4. Nice how this is part graffiti, part more classical painting, with permission from the owner of the walls.

    1. Thanks Dee. I think she mainly paints faces, maybe the expressions are what intrigues her.

  14. The best psychologist are artists, and vice versa

  15. Dearest Sami,
    In the psychology, red means 'asking for attention' and she managed!
    To me it is too red and loses its imprint on ones eyes.
    Hugs,

    1. She seems to do the faces in many colours, as I also photographed one with blues, yellows and oranges. Thanks Mariette.

  17. More people should get permission before painting on walls. And more building owners should encourage artists.
