MARKET ST MURAL

Last week I had occasion to pop into 50 Market St in the City, for a chore and I got a surprise when I saw a very nice mural decorating what is otherwise a very plain and utilitarian office building. The stark simplicity of the foyer (reminiscent of Art Deco, perhaps) is livened up by a triptych that hangs on a wall close to the lifts.

There is no information about the mural anywhere in the foyer, and the only indication of the artist is the signature "R. Metcalfe '95" on the bottom right hand corner. A trawl through google failed to enlighten me as to who this artist is or what the triptych is called. However, there are plenty of mellow yellows and brilliant blues in this work!

This post is part of the Monday Murals meme,
and also the Mellow Yellow Monday meme,
and also the Blue Monday meme.

  6. The colour is very vibrant. Eye catching. It would be nice for the building manager to incorporate some acknowledgement of the work with the mural.

  8. Gorgeous, thanks for the closeups the texture is obvious an integral part of the piece, and you have captured it perfectly.

  9. These glow in their location. I appreciate the closeups to show the textures. Someone rightly thought these walls could use some art energy. Thanks for participating in this week's Monday Mural.
