During a recent trip to Florence Italy, I noticed this playful exit graffiti at different parts of the town. I enjoyed the subtlety. Among the most astounding and intimidating works of art, a whimsical diversion.
Florence Exit Graffiti #1
A stairway towards the heart? I wonder what the intention is?
More stairs and another red throbbing heart. I guess that the artist is searching for love as means for salvation.
Please notice the stylish hat. I felt very European wearing it. So now there are no hearts and no stairs just a basic red flower.
Here are a few other images from Florence to give you a sense of context.
You have to give it to the artist. It takes lots of courage to decide to leave your own mark amidst all these fantastical monuments.
Here are more impressions from my trip.
Best time to visit Florence is late autumn. Fewer tourists. Don’t get over-heated. The Academy and the original statue of David is amazing. I simply gawked, drop-jawed. Such detailed art produced so long ago by people with much shorter life expectancies. I feel blessed to view it. Yes, there’s another trip to Florence on my bucket list. Every visit is longer.
Hello Laurie, I am not fond of sculptures in general, but this one left me in awe. I kept staring at it for 30 minutes. Pictures don’t do it justice.
