Obrestad Lighthouse has been "artified".
It was done by the British artist Lucy McLauchlan as a part of Nuart
The walls should have been repainted white, but that was postponed for a year to allow it to be used in cooperation with the artist via Nuart.
My husband doesn't like it, and he is looking forward to the day it is repainted white.
What do you think? Like it, or don't like it?

You are married to a man with impeccable taste.

Your husband is of course wrong.

I think it is really cool.

I often like public art if properly commissioned, but I'm with your husband on this one. It's quite ugly. Plain old white would have been much better I think. But maybe it looks different in person. So what do I know? Nuttin!

I agree with your husband. :) It's not quite as bad as graffiti, but it gets close. :\ We have some "art" around here that I don't see as art, too.

I like the art but not painted on this particular building...somehow it just doesn't seem to fit!

Sorry Gunn, it's traditional white for me too!

Me too. Art has its place and some art like this should perhaps belong on an underpass.

I really like this Gunn, but it depends on what the rest of the area looks like, to see if it fits in ok or not!

I like the art work but I think an old building like this one should look more traditional.
