I'm sure these are recently painted. I spotted them a few weeks ago in Chene Bourgeries along my usual tram route into town. It wasn't until I looked at the photo later that I realised there was a website address on the side of one of them. At last, I now know who paints these and it looks like they are all done by one man, Michel Favre!
These two are the first ones I spotted and still my favourite - partly because they are a few feet away from the art shop and I'm usually on my way there when I'm passing them! It's just a shame they are so close together and not so easily photographed.
This shot taken from the opposite side. I brought my camera out especially to get these and I noticed as I was sitting on the tram, two people had stopped to look and touch one of the ones I have shown here before at Place Favre. It's the first time I've seen anyone notice them but I think they are a lovely feature of Geneva. It's amazing that one man's art is displayed all over the city!
