Paintings, free to take

Here’s why my district quite definitely is most avant-garde in the whole of Vienna.

Today, an artist who apparently has his studio in the building next to ours, took his paintings and set them up next to the road and inside a neighbouring building’s courtyard. While I was snapping away, documenting this event, a nice fella stopped and said that they were free to take. Now, I was too shy to talk to the artist, who was sitting somewhere in the courtyard, maybe suffering from whatever nervous breakdown triggered him to do this (or not…I didn’t talk to him, so I’m speculating), but if he’s indeed giving away those paintings, well, then he’s one cool cat.

And if our flat wasn’t already packed, I’d of course want the dirty painting.
