Actors and singers

Mia Farrow – Carrer de la Cera

It is always arresting and delightful to come across interesting graffiti, and especially so (at least for me) when the subjects are people who are famous. Mostly those famous people are actors and singers, and here are some examples of their portraits graffiti style – enjoy!

Norah Jones – Carrer de Maria Aurelia Capmany

Some of these portraits are simple stencils where only black paint has been used, such as the one of singers Norah Jones (above) and Adèle (below)…

David Bowie – Carrer Princesa

… or of David Bowie (above) and Rowan Atkinson as Mr Bean (below).

Mr Bean – Carrer d’Ataulf

Vincent Cassel – Carrer d’en Roig

There are others, however, in the form of paste-ups, such as Vincent Cassel (here as his character from the film La Haîne) and the exquisite ones by Btoy: a very young Mia Farrow (at the top), Vivien Leigh as Cleopatra (below)…

Vivien Leigh – Carrer d’Ataülf

… and Gregory Peck in his characterisation as Captain Horatio Hornblower (below). Which do you like best of these actors and singers? I’m torn between Mia Farrow and Gregory Peck – not so much for their acting skills, but for their portraits. They have both been done beautifully, so I find it hard to choose.
