Often ruins have a few tags littering their walls, messages and names left by some dumb-asses in their bid for eternal glory. Scrawls, defacements, junk. Well, not so the Kesihin hospital. It is a gallery of gorgeous, skilled, vivid art that Banksy would be proud of. Fantastic Celtic patterns, grotesque monsters, beautiful sexy women, Warhol-esque renderings of famous models, comedic talking heads, and on. The place is a treasure trove of ever-changing art, as new artists come in and add to, alter, replace the work done by their forebears. Spread over 6 floors and the roof, every wall a blank canvas waiting for the lick of aerosol paint. Phew. Wow.

I’ve been to this place before, at night, shooting by flash. See that post here, and perhaps you’ll notice some of the changes.

A typical wall.
Beauty and stencils.
World painted over a rapturous woman.

Evil thing crawling along the green wall.
That famous chick I see everywhere, Warhol-ized.
He looks like a jelly blob to me.
