Some of the 25 electrical boxes seen in the town of Silves in southern Portugal during our holidays in July 2022.
They were painted in 2020, through the initiative of the Urban art program in partnership between the Municipality of Silves, and street artist Hélder José "Bamby" and a few other artists.
...Sami, you have collected a wonderful group of utility boxes. They have become popular urban canvases. Thanks for hosting.ReplyDelete
Thanks Tom. I was surprised to see so many in the same town!Delete
Thank you, Sami. Very enjoyable collection you have shared today. Thank you so much for hosting us. Wishing you a beautiful week aheadReplyDelete
Thanks Cloudia. Glad you enjoyed them :)Delete
Some of these are quite lovely. Most impressive use of the utility boxes as their canvases. I just wish they would do that in my city. I'm also delighted you are hosting this fun weekly event.ReplyDelete
Thanks Elizabeth. Amazing how such a small utility box can become a great work of art.Delete
Painting these boxes is a very good idea. I wish they would do it here. These are great.ReplyDelete
Thanks Sharon. Something so small but with such a big impact in our vision.Delete
A beautiful collection. these ugly metal cabinets deserve to be hidden under a beautiful paintReplyDelete
Thanks Kwarkito :)Delete
Utility boxes definitely make a perfect host for really imaginative design work. We have a number of them in our town that are similarly decorated. Yes, they are murals but also fit a category all their own.ReplyDelete
Thanks for hosting!
best… mae at maefood.blogspot.com
Thanks Mae, glad they are also being painted in your town :)Delete
They look so much better than a boring grey box. Quite a few boxes are being painted here now.ReplyDelete
Thanks Andrew, that's nice to hear Melbourne utility boxes are also being painted.Delete
utility boxes are so much more interesting when they are painted in a theme.ReplyDelete
They sure are, thanks Amy.Delete
Utility box mural! How unique!ReplyDelete
Thanks Roentare :)Delete
Great idea to beautify the utility boxes. Have a great new week.ReplyDelete
Thank you Nancy :)Delete
wow! This is a great way to beautify the electrical boxes. I hope I will see such murals in Singapore too...ReplyDelete
Have a great week!
Thanks Amila, enjoy your week too :)Delete
E mesmo! Obrigada PedroDelete
They are all so beautiful!! I think the fisherman is my fav (despite I don´t like fish much and Ingo bored be "to death" with fishing in Carnarvon, thanks to books I´m still alive).ReplyDelete
Here we had one very beautiful one from artist Ente on a box (I showed you 2020) - Telekom put their ad over it, so sad).
The fisherman is a great one, looks like it could be on a canvas hanging in people's homes. What a pity Telekom put their advert over the mural.Delete
To color these ugly boxes is a wonderful idea.ReplyDelete
Sorry, once again the linky list didn't work. Have a nice day!
Hi Traudel, I've added your linkDelete
These paintings are masterpieces.ReplyDelete
There are almost too many to contain them all but beautiful they are. Still nice additions to the streetscape.ReplyDelete
I am always amazed you find so many murals in your place.ReplyDelete
These were taken during our trip to Portugal in July/AugustDelete
It really does make sense to add beauty and charm to these utilitarian objects found in every town and city. We should adopt the practice here.ReplyDelete
I agree, a good idea to beautify public spaces. Thanks DavidDelete
I love all of these -- so much better than dull gray metal boxes!ReplyDelete
Thanks Jeanie. Your comment had gone to spam.Delete
Isn't it wonderful when a city is beautified in this way?!?! Other places should learn from this!ReplyDelete
I am pleased that you are interested in my Costa Rica travel report 😊 - there are already two new chapters.
All the best from Austria 👋, Traude
Thanks Traude, will go and read them.Delete
Thank you for visiting my travelogues, Sami! You wanted to know what program I use for my collages. I use PhotoScape and PhotoScapeX alternately. You can download both for free.Delete
Thanks Traude, will downloap them, nicer than Picasa :)Delete
Amazing series of murals. Loved the post.ReplyDelete
Thanks a lot for hosting
Thank you Rupam, glad you enjoyed them.Delete
It makes such a difference to see these boxes painted. Quite a few of ours have been painted and more seem to be getting done all the time.ReplyDelete
That's marvelous Pat, it brightens the cities.Delete
I think these are all good ...
The fisherman one caught Eddie' eye, he enjoys fishing when the weather is good, it's much too cold at the moment.
Enjoy your January days.
All the best Jan
Thanks Jan, yes the fisherman is a good one :) We are going through very hot days high 30's C!Delete
These are wonderful.ReplyDelete
Thanks William. Your commend always seems to go to spam.Delete
Impressive variety! Thanks for collecting the collection.ReplyDelete
