There really should be a law passed banning car parking in front of murals. If I was ever made street art czar that would be the first thing on my to do list.
This piece by Aleksei Bordusov aka Aec Interesni Kazki was one of those random finds whilst ambling around Lisbon on the Saturday afternoon not really going anywhere in particular. Actually I think this would have been after the tour round Quinta do Mocho so my other half would have been really wanting a drink and a rest at this point. Finding this piece was probably a source of annoyance to her more than anything else.
AEC interesni Kazki is a Ukrainian artist who’s surrealist work I have come across before, I saw his ‘Palm man’ piece whilst visiting the town of Girona to the north of Barcelona.
I actually think this piece was still when he was a they and he was still part of a duo with Waone. The piece like the ‘palm man’ one is full of great colours and imaginary characters. The character on the left of the balancing scales is a parrot/man standing on one leg who appears to be reading the electric heart pads to resurrect a small creature that’s floating in front of him
The second character to the right is half man half cricket and is playing the guitar with one set of arms and clapping with the other. I’m not sure if he’s clapping to his own song or clapping the parrot man at saving the insects life. The cricket man thing is also rocking a very nice moustache and shirt collar combo. Although my photos do not show that all to well annoyingly.
Surreal is definitely the right word to describe this piece and I’d really love to see the process behind creating a piece such as this.
