Monday Moment: Yellow Fists In Istanbul

Monday Moment

Yellow Fists In Istanbul

They float high on the walls during the day but descend into the street at night as shops and storefronts are shuttered.

These yellow fists and bright eyes are all over the Beyoglu district of Istanbul.

Created by the street artist Kripoe they lend an eerie element to the downtown core. I like that most of them are hidden during the day; it’s a transformation as night falls and they are revealed.

      I’m surprised that it hasn’t all been taken down. I’m a fan of street art so was happy to see it but I know that many cities are battling graffiti and would have removed it.
