Massive Seaside Street Art compilation

in OCDlast year (edited)

Well, it's not that massive, they're only 24 pics, but they are all ocean or beach related and I feel quite proud of that, of over the 200 pics I've gathered over the past 2 months - since I posted my last street art compilation -, all of these have drawings that are directly related to the ocean, or were taken near the ocean and the location tells it all (for example, palmtrees in the back or the front of the photography.

I wanted to try it this way because I have so many pictures as of today (and I'm still finding more and more every day) that I kind of wanted to make them themed, although I won't be able to do that on every comp, that's a fact.

The last time I uploaded a graffiti compilation like this one I did it with a little description below some of the best murals and it seems that people liked it, so I'm gonna do that again and see how it goes.

All of these murals are taken from places in Mexico, my country, although they are from different cities and towns, most if not all of them are not related and were made by different people at different times and with different meaning, but were all taken by my cellphone camera and I'm showing them to you.

Some of these pieces have a signature by the artist who made them, those I can find online I invite them to be part of Hive and to start posting but, as of today, I haven't had any luck with these people. Artists are free souls and explaining them about Hive can be tricky but, I hope that one day I can onboard some of them to our blockchain and once I do, I can have some real life examples of how street artists can thrive here.

OCEAN and BEACHSIDE STREET ART

Now don't get me wrong, this piece is not blurry and shady, it's just that it took the photo from the car because it was pouring rain and if I got out of the car I would've ended up without cellphone and without picture :P This mermaid was beautiful and it cannot be fully appreciated but, the fact that the design and style is not common and the artist may have wanted to portray a weird mermaid gives it a great touch.

And last but not least, that's me enjoying a michelada con clamato in one of the many beachfronts I explored to get some of these street art photos. I hope you liked this comp!

I've made compilations that are 10 pics long, some others have been 60+ and I have some (the least) that are 20-30 pics. In some comps I include descriptions, in some others I don't, some of them have my own interpretation of the murals and so on...

Which format do you enjoy the most?

Sort:  

Making these arts probably took more time than building the buildings, on which these arts are on. Okay, maybe not, but these graffities are still very well detailed.

Me gustó el mural de la Iguana!!!

Excelente amigo @anomadsoul, un abrazo fraterno de mi parte. Tiempo sin saber de ti.

Great series, they are all very colorful too!

Realmente es como una explosión de arte. Gracias por compartir.

I noticed that marine wildlife is a very common theme for street art in Mexico. Sadly, quite contrasting with how ignorant most locals are when it comes to protection and conservation of it...

Great collection, cool shots. Me gusta.

I love these compilations XD

I will usually read text if you feel like providing text, though depending on what's going on it will be anyone's guess whether I absorb anything :) I feel like you should leave it to how you feel at the time when you're compiling the post?

Some very impressive murals! My favorite one... quite weirdly, it's the one you took in the rain. Not even the mermaid you mentioned, though she looks pretty cool herself, but the whale-shark where your camera got a few raindrops.

I used to make these compilation style posts too, but then I felt that focusing on one mural only in each post gives each mural the attention it deserves. Later I started participating in CCC's Street Art Contest, which is a beautiful place to share murals. I can highly recommend it, and I'm sure the murals you found would get a lot of good attention there.

Stunning selection... Cool to see that several works on the same theme, we can see the style of each artist 👍

Thanks for sharing all these pics, The StreetArt Community.

nice and unique painting
