There are numerous fascinating collective nouns for birds such as a commotion of coots, a conspiracy of ravens, a grumbling of wild turkeys, and a squabble of gulls. I bring this to your attention because there must be a more interesting even spellbinding phrase to describe a collection of street art pieces – rather than simply saying murals. I propose paraphrasing the collective noun for crows and say a murder of murals. Before there is any grumbling or squabbling or calling me an old coot, one has to agree the images below clearly demonstrate the artists walloped those walls and set them aflame. In a word, they murdered these murals.
Pedestrian passageways under busy city streets make maneuvering one’s way through Munich quicker and safer. Moreover, they provide ample wall space for street artists to express their creativity. A prime example is the passageway near the Friedensengel where the artist Loomit curated a mural project a few years ago.
