Metal Gear Rising Mural
I am sure that everyone has seen this by now, the painting next to FACT to promote the release of the computer game Metal Gear Rising. I am a big fan of the Metal Gear series, and was shocked and excited when this artwork appeared in our city.

Even though it is an advertisement, it is something that people stop and take notice of. I think that if we had more things like this across the city it would be a more exciting place to be, with people being able to admire different things about the city. I know that we do have some artwork similar to this already, but there are so many places that would benefit from having a piece of art on the side. Rather than look at an old brick wall that is falling down, I would much rather look at a painting or some other form of artwork.

What do you think of this painting, and what are your opinions on artwork in the city?
