I'm watching you in Anderlecht...

I am watching you...Anderlecht graffiti

I love all the graffiti murals painted on the concrete columns under the Ring road that looms over part of Neerpede's leafy park in the far reaches of Anderlecht. IMHO, it's the best open-air art gallery in Brussels. I even thought about commissioning on of the boys to paint something on my bedroom wall..! However, it's really disheartening that some of the best works of art - which they are - get covered up by ugly tags, which display no artistic merit, talent or imagination. Only territory marking like urinating canines....

As an older art collector since my wife passed away, I must admit to being very partial to collecting nudes in art, as original paintings or as good prints, that I have displayed all over the house. (I like to see the surprised faces of my new visitors).
This one,
