Up Against the Wall: A Gallery of Nature-Themed Graffiti and Street Art

Napping Man with Dog

Avignon, France

Submitted by: Valerie Gwinner

In a bustling part of Avignon’s old city center, by the university, a man naps with his dog. The image cleverly uses its environment to create a trompe l’oeil and transform these 2 dimensional characters into 3. During the Avignon theater festival, when this image was taken, the streets are particularly lively and filled with performers trying to lure the public to their shows. So this peaceful, napping man is a welcome image of calm. as he slowly frays around the edges – the inevitable conclusion of the palimpsest that is street art.
