On boxing day, we decided to get out of the house for awhile. Sometimes I enjoy just going for a drive, and seeing where we land up. I have lived in Durban, for most of my life, and this place can get pretty boring after awhile.
Well, some how we landed up in Umbilo, which is a few minutes out of town. It’s a shame that this area is looking so run down, these days. For some reason, the graffiti, on the Winston Pub, caught my eye, and I had to stop and take a few photos. It probably wasn’t the safest place in the world, to climb out of the car, but I had to do it.
I love seeing artwork like this. I wish that all the bridges in the area, were painted with graffiti. It’s amazing how a painting like this, can change the whole atmosphere from such a dark and depressing setting, to something that is so iconic, and inspiring.
This is art !!! Something that brightens up the day. I wish I knew who painted it. If you know by any chance, I would love to hear from you. Please feel free to post a comment in the box provided below.
I wish the city municipality would commission more artwork in the area. I think we all need a bit of creativity and colour in our lives.
