The Balloon Girl

 This mural grabbed my attention when I was ambling around the Straits Quay promenade. 

I thought the artist's style was vaguely familiar. 

Turned out, I was right. The artist is Lithuanian Ernest Zacharevic of international fame.

I find the artist's signature style of involving real props in his street art fascinating.

  38. Love this. A lot of his work seems so playful. Love art that you can interact with. And I see that he has a piece in Atlanta, GA. I will have to look for it next time I'm back east. What a treat to stumble upon the balloon girl.

  42. I love art like this. One of my friends found a sidewalk that ended. He made a sign that looked just like the book cover of Shel Silverstein's, and put it at the end of their sidewalk in the middle of the night.
