„Ding Dong Dumb” by Blu


Mural "Never follow" painted by famous italian street artist Blu. Very interesting and little controversial, considering that the work calls for freedom from ecclesiastical propaganda - in the city which is under strong influence of the Catholic Church and the worship of JPII.
Józefińska St. in Cracow, Poland.

  1. That is a BIG bell... And a wake-up call ; I find the message given by this painting very clever.

  2. What a fascinating mural. Is the church still in use?

    1. It isn't the church on this picture - it's a common tenement house in Cracow.

  6. Wow! This mural is one that would grab your attention from a long way off. The people at the bottom appear to all look the same. They remind me of lost souls.

  7. Very interesting mural! I can see why it would be controversial in a city so strongly influenced by the church. It is well executed though!

  8. I love the scale and the clever way the protester's megaphone merges with a bell.
