Since the Steem blockchain became a centralized, top-down dominated place, where control and censorship thrive, I have decided to move my content. Don't worry, though, all my posts and up and doing well on the decentralized Hive blockchain. Come and check it out!

really nice Post @stortebeker! I love the art and the fact that you took the time to explain their deeper significance! I really hope this inspires others to look to their local communities and art scene to share the beauty and expressions of culture, identity and resistance against the forces that stifle real progress for Humanity. Resteemed!!!

IF YOU ARE READING THIS, PLEASE SHARE ART IN YOUR AREA HERE ON STEEMIT. You may see it everyday, but we haven't gotten to see it once! Could get you some upvotes and some recognition for the artist and their work. Think about it ;) Cheers @ecoknowme

Thanks, @ecoknowme. For certain, once you walk by a mural for the fifteenth time, you tend to get so used to it that you stop noticing it. For me, it wasn't until I realized that they would make nice posts here in Steemit, that I started seeing them again.

It is interesting how 'the Steemit Lens' puts everything into a new perspective... Half seeing the Magic that was there all along... half thinking how we could turn it into content... I know do... for better or worse :)

This was so interesting. I don't see many murals and I just thought they were there to make the building more colorful. Never once did I think that there was a message. I sure will look at murals differently now; when I do see them.

Oh yeah, some are. Some also try to sell us things. Others are heavily political. This one is too, a little bit. Some are a combination of things. I feel like I should present more awesome ones, as I'm right here in the land of many murals.

Yes, please do. I sure would love to see them. :)

yes, will look at all these posts soon.

got to run right now, but great posts

Thanks for checking it out!
