Disko mural


Although I have absolutely no idea what this mural means, I find it rather interesting. I found it in a parking area just off College Street at the west end of Little Italy. 


Here's a closer look at what I'm interpreting as a ghost orchestra. It looks like the conductor is pretty charismatic! The only information I found was a signature stamp sort of thing which read: DISKO SECTR MOTEL WORTH. Any additional information on this piece is welcome. For more painting on the wall, take a look at Monday Murals.

Personally, I find it very frustrating with such murals are so out there that I have no idea what it is about. But I could see myself looking at this for a long time, trying to get an idea.

Judging from what I have seen of murals and graffiti I am convince that these artist have a very different view of life than I do.

A ghost orchestra?! Now I'm even more curious. :-)

It is fascinating. For some reason it reminds me of old medieval tales. But I don't understand why, ever since I first saw this, I have a strange feeling I'm being followed.

I'm tempted to do more research on this but have come to realize I don't have a ghost of a chance of finding out anything real.

Count me among the puzzled. The rest of the wall seems to be part of the composition too. But from here it looks like those stylized signatures that I am hopeless at deciphering. But like Violet says, the really unusual compositions usually make you look longer trying to figure out what the heck is going on. Join the club, I'm frequently uncertain or confused by the murals I see. It means something definitive to the artist, so if you find out, let us know. Thanks for contributing to Monday Mural.

I love your concept of a ghost orchestra. He appears to be weaving magic for sure.

I haven't see that one so have no idea! I'll have to do some research now since I'm curious.

Yes, strange indeed. This one doesn't do much for me, but each to his own.

Murals are always open for interpretation, this one is your ghost orchestra.

Must be an interesting story.

I hate the new word verification. Since I have trouble reading those "words", I am assuming others do too.
