The Real Borf


I couldn’t believe it when I saw these.  They’re on the same lamppost.  I love them — even more now that I read the Post article about the artist.  One thing he said was that the Borf thing saved his life.  Borf is about a friend who killed himself — I believe that’s him.  Anyhow, art saves lives.  That’s true.  And while this site hasn’t saved my life — it has made it much, much better.  I get so much satisfaction finding and documenting other people’s art, it’s kinda crazy.

This mural is monumental in person.  I couldn’t capture it in a single frame, because of the fence across the alley.  It was a very grey morning when I took these photos. The kids must look amazing when they are playing in the sun.
