Monday Murals | David Shillinglaw & Billy Colours

We’re loving the colorful, vibrant and brightly painted mural of love painted in front of the El Pida in Thessaloniki, Greece by artists David Shillinglaw and Billy Colours. Through this act of creativity and beautification, Shillinglaw hopes to bring positive energy and vibes to this temporary home to hundreds of refugees.

“ I feel that painting silly things on a wall can change the whole vibe and energy of a space. We are products of our environment, and our environment is a product of us. It was an honour to be asked to decorate this dull old building in the middle of nowhere, A temporary home to hundreds of refugees.” - David Shillinglaw

“Rebel Yell” by Billy Idol and Steve Stevens

Last night a little dancer came dancin’ to my door
Last night a little angel came pumping on the floor
She said, come on baby, I got a license for love
And if it expires, pray help from above

This is a phenomenal live acoustic version of their classic which was anything but acoustic. I’m amazed at how much of the song Stevens replicates on the acoustic without losing the song.

It’s Monday. You only got paid last week but you’re already broke. You have no clean clothes for work because you spent the whole weekend avoiding your responsibilities using your favourite destructive vices and now the self loathing kicks in. Kicks in hard. Never fear, Tom Hopper’s Arms make everything better. The best therapy in existence.
