When residents of Temple Valley venture over to the other side of the train tracks via the underground passageway, the first sight to meet their eyes is this 'vision' tagged on the walls of the subterranean hall. While some have been thrown off guard by the vaguely extraterrestrial skull-like image, I've always found it somewhat interesting. The appeal is wearing thin though as replicas of the artwork pop up all over town. If I was given a choice of landscape wall paper, I'm not so sure I would pick out this pattern.
Now the graffiti that adorns the buildings and walls closer to our home in the mountain hollow of Temple Valley is certainly more primitive, raw, visceral, etc. than D*Face's latest street art masterpiece. Yet to my untrained eye the spray painted images bear a certain resemblance to the highly-valued work that graces a prominent space in this decidedly more hip section of Tokyo.
I guess when it comes to art Qururi might be wrong, everybody doesn't feel the same way and not everybody always appreciates the beauty right before his or her eyes either.
