  • I love murals and actively seek them out in any city I travel to. This is horrible.

  • Oh dear lord. That is appalling. If I were a neighbor, I’d be pissed as hell. Then I’d be buying a few gallons of paint and be engaging in a little guerrilla beautification.

  • Inspiring!

  • Dear Shaw,

    Please send us your mural artists. We need them.



  • i guess a homeboy’s gotta learn somewhere.

  • Looks like someone allowed their aspiring-artist Dear Child to go wild with this one. It’s pretty terrible, but hopefully they will paint over it soon.

  • Are we sure this isn’t actual graffiti? If the homeowner put this here on purpose, then I’d be incensed if I were their neighbor. There are plenty of awesome murals in DC, this is not one of them.

    • “incensed”? over what someone else does with their property?

      • This is a community. We all share the same space. That’s why people get upset about unsightly pop-ups, etc. If I lived on this block, I’d be annoyed.

        Agreed re. “There are plenty of awesome murals in DC; this is not one of them.”

  • “Mura’?” Or really baaaaaaaad graffiti? I’m leaning towards the latter (and hope I’m right . . .).

  • Thumbs down.

  • Not the worst I’ve seen, but is a bit amateurish. 6.5/10 rating.

    • What would get a 1 out of 10 from you? Rotten pizza crusts and rat corpses nailed to a wall?? Or would you just call that “edgy”?

      • Damien Hirst: “That’s a brilliant idea. I will sell it to a Russian oligarch for $3 million.”

  • Down. I agree that this is graffiti and not a mural.

    • Wait, so you don’t like this public art so you classify it as graffiti? But if you do like it, then it’s a mural?

      If the work was down with permission from the property owner than by definition it’s not graffiti.

  • I like the frobot with the window mouth, could look cool at night if they take the board out and leave a light on.

  • LOL, looks like someones shroom trip

    but sriously people chill out. No i dont expect you to love everythign your neighbor does with their property but im sure they dont all drool over your yards

    This is really, really bad. Let’s hope it was done while the homeowner was away on vacation for a week and didn’t notice it happening.
