The Race

Mural Art in Vancouver near Clark Drive .... the truck was being loaded there - so I had to make him part of the "picture story".

Murals - a way to brighten up bare walls of buildings and to keep away vandals from doing their ugly graffiti work - Vancouver has many, many, especially on the eastside of town ...

    strangely enough, i had similar art associations as leonid: soviet-era paintings, social realism maybe, of the 1930s… something about the "urgency" of the cyclist, the raised arm and fist (?) in the crowd, the cogwheels for a backdrop… great how you managed to include the truck in the picture! in fact, it matches the mural theme (tracks and wheels! ; )) perfectly! my favorited detail: the tracks on the wall and how they seem to continue as shadows on the tarmac of the "real world" ; ))! hugs, sabine.

    A nice mural depicting lots of movement with the bike and the train and the real truck in our world!

    Der Trucker hat es aufgegeben, diesen Radfahrer einzuholen. Er meint, zu stehen und ist ausgestiegen.

    I think the Truck fits realy well into the picture and does not take anything away from the mural. This one is my favorite!
    greetings, Gi

    great
    reminds me of the 1920-30-s Soviet paintings urging young builders of communism to indulge in health habits and sports

    Da ist viel Bewegung drin, da juckt es sozusagen auch dem stehenden Truck in den Rädern!
    Liebe Grüße, Ernst
