The Urban Art Experience, Revisited

I noticed that Charmarley Nightfire has relisted his Urban Art Experience as updated, so I popped over a couple of times today, just to take a second look. (The first time I visited this morning, I encountered a newcomer to Sansar, who said he was connecting from Saudia Arabia!)

There’s lots of amazing urban art on display, as I reported on my first visit, including at least one new gallery. I took a few photos to give you a taste of what’s there, and to encourage you to make a visit yourself to this virtual art gallery. Where else could you see so much urban art all in one place? You’d have to travel the globe to see all the art in its original locations!

You enter a dimly-lit, meandering cave where fireflies dance near the entrance, and you discover several monochrome artworks which are on display by candlelight. If you’re visiting in desktop mode, you might find it a bit too dark, which means you could get lost. Follow the candles!

A side passage in the cave takes you to some colourful and playful murals:

You continue through, past a political Pinocchio mural where a war rocket replaces Pinocchio’s lying nose, and you exit the cave. Turn left and follow the stone wall, and you will find a new gallery, with a yellow “Warning: Area Under Construction” sign. As you follow the stone hallways, you come across windows opening out onto bitingly satirical cartoon images, each taking a potshot at corporate greed and amorality:

The only way that this splendid virtual art collection could be any better, would be if Charmarley added captions to the works on display, giving information about the artists who did the work. (I realize that in some cases the works are anonymous.)

If you haven’t been yet, or if you haven’t been lately, I would urge you to pay a visit. It’s definitely one of my Top Sixteen Sansar experiences!
