220. Art by Anonymous - #1

One of the things I am loving about Belgrade is the amount of street art - particularly in the more run-down and neglected districts ...

Here is some of the art I found in just a couple of hours of wandering the streets of the Savamala District ... many more districts to discover ... !!! ...

So you be the judge - " ... is it art or is it just annoying graffiti ... ??? " ...  
 

Nobody seems to know who this artist is - I have asked several people - including art gallery staff and even asked t at the Tourist Information Bureau - but to no avail ... his / her paintings of well-known Serbs are all over the place ... the likes of sports stars, musicians, politicians, movie stars, gangsters etc ... The artist puts the logo Grup JNA on the paintings - and my research tells me that is punk musician Dete Partizana- so maybe he is also the artist ... I'll solve the mystery eventually ...

The next two particularly caught my eye - the artist has created their canvas by stretching plastic food wrap between two poles, then painting on that - very clever ...

... and finally, my two personal favourites ...

... stay tuned for more up-dates as I explore this city ...
