Funny Face

I was on my way to an appointment when I noticed this striking mural. When I stopped to look I saw that each face is distinctive and fully realized, not just quick caricatures.

Their personalities are so individual that I think they may be portraits of actual children. There are a couple dozen faces and they’re worth a longer look--I’ll have to go back when I’m not pressed for time.

The mural is painted on the wall of the Escuela Fiscal de Ninos Hernan Cordero Crespo, on Gran Colombia, just past Convencion del 45.

I'd like to find out more about it--this is outstanding work.
