Joy to the hotel
An old guy like me would not dream of asking young people to become vandals and crooks of course, but I must admit that I prefer street art to be outdoors (and on walls that have not been painted for a while).
Still a lot of the best ones now seem to enjoy doing commissioned works like huge murals and decorations in office buildings, training centers and hotels. Everybody needs some money to get by, so that´s not too hard to understand, is it?
I checked out Bergen street art artist Joy´s fine work at the Edvard Grieg Hotel in Bergen, not far from the airport.
The models are our local historical big shot Edvard Grieg, Bergen mayor Trude Drevland and Norway´s first female bishop, Rosemarie Køhn, Marilyn Monroe style and all!
