Art or just distasteful?

So the old saying is "Art and beauty are in the eye of the beholder."  Basically it means that you can either like some types of art or you don't have to.  That is the reason for this blog, it is a way for you to tell me what you like and what you don't.  Everyone is entitled to your opinion.

So that being said, some people are not fond of artwork on the sides of buildings.  They think it is distasteful and sometimes often rude.  I want you to check out these buildings that have created controversy in their respected communities and tell me what you think.




What do you think of these buildings?  Do you think they are art or have they created eye sores in the community.  If you could paint something on the side of a building, what would you paint?

  1. These buildings are art. They take something so over looked and turn it into something that people want to look at. Those people that say it is not art, are wrong. They probably say that because they can't do that.

  4. I think these buildings are amazing. They are really cool because they shows what the artist thinks when he/she looks at every day objects. The people that say they don't like it and thinks it's not art, do not know what true art are.

  6. I think these buildings are super cool. They show what the artist thinks about and how his past makes him, him. If I had the ability to paint something like this it would be military soldiers because my dad is my biggest role model.

  8. These building look really cool. If I had someone do this to a building that I either live in or see everyday, I would love it. Art always makes people think and everyone has their own opinion.

  10. I am a huge fan of these buildings, they look so realistic. I wish buildings in SD were more interesting like these buildings are. If I had a building and had the ability to paint this well I would paint a portrait of Matt Smith and David Tennant because they are my favorite actors.

  16. I definitely wouldn't call this "distasteful" or "rude", but it just straight up does not look good. Painting is not for buildings.

  33. It depends on the art. I like these buildings because they look cool but I don't support graffiti or vandalism. As long as they got permission first I think these are cool.

  44. I love how realistic it looks, I enjoy the way it was done on the side of a building. It looks like I can just walk right into that painted bedroom. It would be great if I got to see some of these painting in real life, and I wonder how I would react.
