Heebee Post #679 - Fleur Helsingor - Oakland, California - USA

I love how the tormented appearance a landscape of urban statements relates to the viewer. Here, Fleur constructs from deconstruction - his collection of graffiti snapshots actually cheers up the disregarded debris scattered about the perimeter of the San Francisco Bay. Great composition Fleur!
I have just come back from the Bay Area in California myself. I have actually been down there twice in the last month (some family matters). I would liked to have said hello to Fleur while in Oakland - unfortunately, I was just too busy. I am curious enough about his art to just want to meet him. I did not have time to ask his permission for this nor to arrange a meeting so, maybe next time. Check out some of his work: Fleur's place.


  1. Hi Test! I'm glad that you like my entry. Lately, I've been making little art puzzles that consist of six identically sized pieces, which you can arrange in any way that you like.

    The images in this set come from photos that I took at The Albany Bulb. The Bulb used to be a dumping ground for construction debris, and the area's residents had the place cleaned up and turned into a park. It's now part of Eastshore Park.

    The residents also encourage artists to come in and use the junk for art. There's quite a gallery there now, and it's always changing.

    This park is quite new. I made my first visit there in 2005.

    I'd love to meet you. Let's keep in touch!

  2. You're on! I'll send you an email. That's great.
