    I used to pass this guy in Sacramento a lot. Always brightened my day.

    I pass by this almost every day in Santiago. One day after about a month I realised it's Chile, north to south.

    Picture quality isn't great though. :/

    Bay Area public art --






    This one is among my favorite pieces of public art, though. It's a park bench near the Salvador Dali museum in St. Petersburg, Florida.

    David Wong, regarding Chicago
    Six centuries ago, the pre-Colombian natives who settled here named this region with a word which in their language means "the Mouth of Shadow". Later, the Iroquois who showed up and inexplicably slaughtered every man, woman and child renamed it "Seriously, Fuck that Place". When French explorer Jacques Marquette passed through the area he marked his map with a drawing of a brownish blob emerging from between the Devil's buttocks.

    I'll try to contribute just by walking around taking some pictures since there's so much of it here, but I remember seeing these ones earlier. There's some really talented/cheeky artists.







    I'll see if i can pop back into hosier lane sometime and see what's going on there these days...
