A boy and a girl facing one another on an otherwise desolate wall outside of a closed down factory in Asheville, North Carolina.
The mural by Ian Brownlee is one of many painted on buildings in North Carolina. Ian’s words, “Don’t Stop Believing.”
Paintings on walls that guard the emptiness inside only go to make the emptiness more meaningful. Otherwise, the building would collapse in ugliness. Now, it can be overtaken by mother nature with a little dignity.
“We become aware of the void as we fill it.” ― Antonio Porchia, Poet (1885-1968)
