This piece by Jade in the Chorrillos District of Lima, Peru is probably a bit more cutesy than the street work I’m normally interested in, but the placement is great. Most murals of this size look they they are slapped onto a wall, but the different surfaces (wood and brick) are interesting, and the way that the wall is falling apart a bit at the bottom makes it look like perhaps the mural has been part of the wall for quite some time, even though obviously Jade just painted around the parts that are crumbling. This isn’t an obvious spot to put a mural because of those abnormalities, but the piece is stronger because of the decision to those this spot rather than a crisp clean wall.
