Much to my surprise as I've traveled around the Island, I've found several examples of art painted on walls in Bahrain.
|In the restored area of Muharraq there are some walls painted in very modern designs.|
|Along Budaiya Highway there are several areas painted.|
|Yes, there is a Barnes and Noble Bookstore but it is rarely open.|
|From a distance this looked to be a painting. However upon closer examination, it is a cloth print nailed to the wall.|
|This door was painted inside another painting but I could not resist to take a photo of just the door.|
|These six images are taken from a wall in front of a school Apparently the King and the Crown Prince went to school there.|
|In a few areas, street cleaners patrol the streets.|
|Off in the distance an Arabic sentence is written on a wall.|
|The local milk producer has an advertisement painted on the front wall of his store.|
|An armored police vehicle is parked in front of this wall at all times. This is the site for many of the tire burning protests that take place regularly in Bahrain.|
Artists will always find an outlet. Bahrain has some very interesting art and I think the paintings on the walls are wonderful. When I pass one it always bring a smile to my face.
