Fine. You win. ((Street Art))

Oh, Fremont. What can I say? This neighborhood is saturated with artful statements. I had a great time exploring and taking (too) many photos. Here area few of my favorites from the colorful Fremont neighborhood in Seattle:

Finally, he has feet!

It’s about time somebody fixed this sign. I, mean, the poor pedestrian guy has been “walking” around with no feet! Finally somebody “corrected” the situation.

Meet on January 5th, 2012? Looks like I’m too late. Oh, the things you can do with a black sharpie… and the places you’ll go!

Is it art? The one begs me to ask this question to myself. Ultimately, “art” is an attitude. It is about how you see what is around you, whether you see the magic or beauty of something; if something provokes thought. First, I fully speculate that this person doesn’t have a cell phone or computer and/ or is trying to communicate with someone who may not have a cell phone or computer. It wasn’t about making something artful, but it *was* creative. Creative communication (like the photo below) has been going on since caveman drawing. If I could have been a fly on the wall when the two met; I wonder if they found themselves surrounded by secret voyeurs? Nope, probably just me behind a newspaper being the weird one that I am.

Parking For Tenants Only! Fine. You Win.

Do you ever make verbal  come-backs to street signs or other drivers? Did you ever want to retort or tell them a thing or two? …and did you happen to have a paint-pen handy? This person did.

About Rachel Heu

"Creativity is an act of defiance. You're challenging the status quo. You're questioning accepted truths and principles. You're asking three universal questions that mock conventional wisdom: Why do I have to obey the rules? Why can't I be different? Why can't I do it my way?" --Twyla Tharp, The Creative Habit: Learn It and Use It For Life (pg. 133)
