patito, your insight is superior to mine. I chose it because of the jarring contrast and the peaceful attitude of the woman. He is looking at her medal, perhaps a holy medal and she is sharing with him by holding his hand. The yellow writing may not be associated with the drawing, but it appears to reference love in English or Spanish. The woman appears to local, probably LA. j2525

I don't understand it either, Abe...which just makes it that much more intersting...what's with the hand reaching for the necklace ? Why is she blue ? How about that haircut ? And why would an artist with the skill and talent necessary to produce a work like this place it in the middle of a desolate urban wasteland ? The best art has often been that which fails to neatly bundle up the content, but rather leaves things un-resolved and open-ended, thus involving the observer in a filling-in process that draws the observer into the work. The recently posted photo by Greg Crewsdon of the people standing in the front yard of a house is an excellent example of this technique.

I don't understand the painting on the column. It's someone else's hand grabbing the necklace. And the pic is named Madonna. I just don't get it. As far as graffiti goes it's nicely done.
