Photographed on August 21, 2017, just minutes before the wall was whitewashed to make way for new art. (The vertical blue and yellow tinting is from the sun shining through a stained glass awning over the alleyway). Artist unknown.
Modica Way in Cambridge is host to all types of street art: murals, graffiti, stenciled messages promoting social justice and other political causes, and the sort. Once in a while, though, there’s something totally off the wall on the wall, such as this cuckoo crank flyer by “Johnny War – Master Artist” proclaiming that “Trump Is A Dream” and other cryptic messages. These is no sense in trying to make sense of this nonsense.
Angelonce is an LA-based artist whose trademark character is an angry pink elephant named Charlie (yes, Charlie is pink. Do not listen to what your eyes are telling you. Charlie is pink, period. Trust me…. Charlie is pink). Angelonce gets around: I first discovered his work while snapping pics in San Francisco last year, and subsequently bumped into him while he was doing some mural work in Cambridge’s graffiti alley.
