Street Art: Both sides of the Bay

Here's two pieces, one old, one new, from both sides of the Bay.

Below is the old one, a survivor, probably several years old. It sits sheltered, nearly out of sight. The message seems personal, and it is very unusual to see one in cursive. It is about 22" long.

This one is on the other side of the pond, and looked brand new to me. What is interesting about this is that it seems to be a portrait of a specific individual, perhaps a memorial. The feathering around the edges is from the rough texture of the stucco making the stencil sit a little high on the surface. This one is about 24" tall.

Both are beautiful.
