A Kaleidoscope Of Colors

Photo by me, April 2014.

Located on Fraser Street in the Summerhill neighborhood of Atlanta is this mural of wonderful color. I like murals that are this colorful and make you take notice of them. You cannot pass by this mural and not take notice of it. It is busy piece of art that has so many interesting aspects to it.

Dissecting this mural takes some work and I'd be the first to admit I am probably interpreting it wrong. In the center is a tree and maybe it is the tree of life. To the right of the tree emerges a woman and to the left of the tree emerges a man with a hairy chest. Both the man and woman are facing robots or some type of technology. The woman is facing one with treads like a machine and arms like that of a back hoe. The man is facing a robot or creature with a television head on a spring like a jack in the box and it has eight legs. There are also other large humanoid figures painted into this mural and animals too. I see birds, lions, maybe a fox and a snake. They appear to be doing battle against one another in some sort of colorful jungle.

The artist of this mural goes by the name 3Ď€Man. Despite some searching around I couldn't locate an artist by that name. This mural was completed on August 16, 2013.

It is one of my favorite murals because it provides so much color to an area of Summerhill that is full of empty and dead parking lots. In a sea of asphalt is this vibrant beauty.
