Pleasant Street | Street AKA Museum

Here is a view of Pleasant Street and the dove above Brazo courtesy of Case (good name – I might add!).  This is probably one of the most missed murals in town, neatly tucked above Brazo in somewhat of a natural setting.  The shot below by Alexandros Vasmoulakis is probably one of the most commented on in town, as far as I’ve noticed.  The mouth and vibrant colors are definitely striking – especially when you don’t expect to encounter a giant piece of street art.  I’m not sure that it’s “Portsmouth”, but I think that’s part of the whole point – it’s gotten a great dialogue going…and has made the Marple & James building a bit more interesting for a few months.

One thought on “Pleasant Street | Street AKA Museum

  1. This is not art it is graffite and detracts from the building and spoils the historic atmosphere of Portsmouth. It should be removed, or at a minimum defaced in hopes that whoever did it will not repeat such a mess. The only “art” here is probably the name of the imported
    Greek who painted it.
