Street art carries a silent, visual language that encourages our eyes to look up from our busy technology-driven bubbles. And yet, like all living things, even public murals have an inevitable ticking clock from the moment they’re conceived. “Public art is temporary,” Leucadia-based artist Santos Orellena from Santos Fine Art Gallery puts it. “You don’t know when the wall is going to be sold or demolished. Artist Dallas Smith, who helps run his family-owned business Leucadia Glass, recently decided he wanted to paint again. But before he began chipping away the art on the back north wall behind Leucadia Glass, Smith contacted the original muralist Bleu Avina through the Internet. He was all for it. ”. The north wall has a history of being a beginner’s paradise. “I was pretty excited about it because it was my first big outdoor mural,” Avina reminisced. Like many bare walls, Avina felt that it was “begging to be painted. Looking back, he views that first mural as practice for the next one that came to be. In 2012, with more skill and even more passion, he poured his soul into a bold new art piece. “The second one was when I committed to painting murals more seriously,” Avina said.

Madonna is spilling a lot of daring truths in the November issue of Harper’s Bazaar, and looking fierce doing it. “I did all the opposite of what all the other girls were doing,” she writes. ” Well, now all the other girls are fans of barely-there fashion (ahem, Miley) but Madonna did it first, in the biggest way. What she does sport is warrior provocateur: swords and capes over runway looks from Lanvin and Altuzzara, some Zana Bayne harnesses and a pair of Diego Dolcini boots elevated by shiny black panthers — all of it modern yet singing the same song of... Preach on sister, preach on. While Madonna deserves a roaring round of applause for keeping her body in shape (look at that bum. In the age of the Internet, see-though panties are hardly the bold proposition they were in ’93. Of course, your bra is showing, of course Terry Richardson (who directed Miley’s “Wrecking Ball” video) is behind the camera. “I would put myself together and look at a postcard of Frida Kahlo taped to my wall, and the sight of her moustache consoled me,” the singer told Harper’s Bazaar about one such influence. Minor qualms aside, it’s fair to assert that Madonna looks good and might become the sexiest.
