They Try and they Try, but they Can’t Stop Art

They try and they try, but they can never stop art.  Art will always survive, even when it is just a faded, scrubbed image of what it initially was.

Can’t Stop Art in Yurakucho

Another in the series You Can’t Stop Art.  This one was taken in the underpass at Yurakucho station.  Lovely old brick arches with little bars and eateries tucked into those arches.

They are all out there laying in plain sight.  The basic shapes that make up the world around us.  The squares, rectangles, triangles, lines ovals, circles.  They are all there.  They are sometimes perfect, and other times they are beautifully imperfect.  I will continue to search out these shapes.  I see them now when I close my eyes.

Can’t Patch Over Art, Art Will Always Win

Thursday, April 29th, 2010

The day was lovely if not a bit on the windy side today.  We hopped on the train to go into Harajuku today.  We had planned to eat lunch at a new breakfast joint imported in from Oahu, but were dismayed to see the line literally go around the block.  Being in a state of dizziness due to eating early this morning we trodded on looking for a spot to eat.

We ended up in a sandwich place.  Which was okay, but the thing we discovered after sitting down was that the restaurant was in partnership with a cigarette company, so we were surrounded by adds trying to get the ladies to smoke.  I thinketh we will never go back there again.

Strolling around the little busy backstreets of Harajuku was enjoyable, I found YOU there, just sitting in a window front.  That was a nice touch, since it is always a pleasure to see you.

There also is this constant battle between the graffiti writers and the buffers.  In the end the  buffers can never win.  Art will always prevail.  The pattern the buffers left behind was so beautiful, with a faint hint of the original graff, it made my warm heart grow even warmer.

So get out there into the world.  See what there is to be seen.  Do not let them hold you back, flip the script and create art out of the seemingly artless.
