Graffito: Heart On Decay Wall

Heart On Decay Wall - graffiti [enlarge]

Right behind La Boqueria market there are some abandoned estates protected by fences through which you can take a peek at some interesting samples of good street art. On the decay walls of some buildings that have been partially demolished artists have managed to leave their perishable imprint. I think that capturing some of their artwork may help prolonging its relatively short existence. It is really fascinating how art gets to be that attractive on debris helped by the so called aesthetics of decay. There is a certain aura around it if you know what I mean. Maybe it is the fact that an ugly canvas enhances the beauty of the main subject. What do you think?

I don't know, Carlos...I suppose on a decaying wall it's OK...but still, I'm old-fashioned enough to like art to uplift and not make me nauseous.

Great shot, though!

P.S. Hope you wanted an honest impression.
