I saw a QWERTY or two

I swear, Rome must have more street art per square kilometer than any city I have yet encountered. Feel free to contradict/challenge me, I can take it.

#QWERTY kept thrusting itself at me on walks in Trastevere. As far as I can ascertain, this is not an individual enterprise, but rather the contributions of a group of artists.

There are hundreds of images to be found when you do a search for “street art by QWERTY”:   QWERTY

If anything will get me back to Rome, it could be the quest for more examples of these works.

I was quite chuffed when I found My Dog Sighs in such good company. (Or, vice versa, perhaps.)

Do you have lots of street art where you live? Do you like it?

My Dog Sighs

It was a post on this blog that first alerted me to a startling example of street art in Trastevere. Roman Despatches

I did some searching online, and found out a lot about the artist and this particular work. My Dog Sighs

(You’ll miss a lot of interesting background if you don’t go to that site! And, even worse, I’ll haunt you.)

It was with a high degree of satisfaction that I spotted the work yesterday, just after I found that tiny set of stairs for Barb to climb.

I found the detail in the close-up views of the eyes quite startling. I read how he had done this, but I’m still impressed!
