This is behind the restaurant Vegenation, which I will talk about soon.Une murale qui anime un triste stationnement!

Another rebel graffiti. The woman’s face extends below on the asphalt, a mark of the artist’s craft. The other graffiti artists have (for the most part) respected this image!

You can guess the hope and apprehension in this man’s eyes. (My other angle without the post was too sun-drenched to show.)

This dignified face may be a publicity stunt, but the Fear no Fate text looks like Fear no Hate, all in all a good message for me.
