Not-A-Garden-Tour #14

Well, the Human has had these pictures since the Introodur visited two months ago. But finally, here they are for our Not-A-Garden-Tour! (That's the Introodur way down there on the left, more's the pity she didn't leave him there.)
So when we went to the airport to see those motorbikes, we came across this art installation in the International Terminal. Looky how big it is!

The Human took some closer-up pictures of the small paintings that make it up:


We loved this and are thinking about going back out to the airport just so we can look at more of these little squares. My only real complaint is that there were hardly any kitties. There were a lot of other interesting things though, I have to admit.



The sign below says there are 5,265 of them and the artist used to paint them on the subway!
All we can say is: Wow.

The Furries of Whisppy said...

That's impressive! He could do better if he painted kitties. :)

Summer at sparklecat.com said...

I still think he needed to paint more kitties.

Marg said...

Wow, that is really something. How great that he saved all his hard work.That is just amazing. It would take a long time just to look at all of them. Have a great day.

Brian said...

Well that was pretty darn cool Spitty!

What a unique and interesting art installation, Spitty! We agree, though ... more cats are definitely needed!

Katie Isabella said...

I could never have known this without you Spitty. Thank you for bringing this for us to see. I am very sincere. xoxoxox (and yes, of coure I will eat the rose.)

Terri said...

That is unusual and a lot of work! I wonder how they came to be installed on the airport wall? Can you imagine saving all of those!

Cathy Keisha said...

Spitty, the only thing I noticed is that tennis ball on the floor. Or is it an orange. Either way, I would've taken it. As for the art, I thought it was the work of the 2nd grade class. HAH!

Shaggy and Scout said...

Way cool!

Ivan and Izzy from WMD said...

Totally cool! But Spitty, you need to contact the dude and demand he do a whole bunch of cat squares. Like a thousand of them.

Seville at Nerissa's Life said...

That's kind of neat, I think. But you're right... can you imagine how great that would look if EVERY SINGLE PICTURE was of cats? WOW! Talk about your artwork! purrs

The Island Cats said...

Spitty, we'd hafta say, that's pretty cool...even if there weren't a lot of cats.

Airport artwork intrigues my Mom as so many of them are very plain so those rare ones are cool to view through seeing them means a trip away from us so these views from afar is much better.

But, but - where is the token shot of Spitty. This means we have to go at least 24 hours with a Spitty fix - unacceptable!

Photo Cache said...

mama loves this part of the airport especially this art installation. she though the guy who made these little squares is a genius.

A Tonk's Tail said...

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

That is cool.
We've been catching up on your posts, Star says not enough Spitty, but then, she's a little biased...

Oui Oui said...

Think of all the time it took! We think it would be really cool if you could open those little squares and there would be pix of what was on the outside square, like a picture book. We'd be interested in seeing the "Vulgar Ties".
