SURFIN' U.S.A.

Another mural on a building in Fort Lauderdale. This is by Monique Richter. I was not able to find out much about her except what Goggle comes up with (pun intended). She seems to be into surfing which could explain the subject matter. Her style is different from the other artists that you have seen here. Somewhat reminiscent of Van Gogh;that would be Hot Dog Van Gogh from The North Shore. You might have assumed I was referring to his late relative, Notfarto. At any rate, the mural resides on the side of a water sports store and adds a little beauty to it.

  1. Hi B, it's really off the wall, well I guess it's actually on the wall anyway the more I look at it the more I like it.
    Thanks for sharing the art of Fort Lauderdale.

  2. Interesting. The style of the painting is quite different than one might expect. The shop owner is likely interested in art.

  6. I see he is able to "Hang 10", so he must be a good surfer!

  8. Wonderfully executed. These murals add so much to our world. And they are all so different and entertaining in their color and design. Keep finding them. Just great.
