Let’s Love Life

Though I can’t be sure it’s his work, I’m pretty confident this is the work of a guy called Matt. (I saw him earlier in the night, ahead of this being created, and knowing the way he works, I’m sure it’s him).

Made from soil, you can’t help but love the sentiment in this piece of “organic public art” in my back laneway.

Matt is a homeless guy who has lived on-and-off in my neighbourhood over the last few years.

He’s a divisive figure in my neighbourhood. Some people hate him sleeping rough, and his erratic behaviour. Others, like me, have developed a friendly relationship with him, though noting his behaviour is sometimes a little bit challenging. From my conversations with him, he seems like a genuinely thoughtful interesting man, albeit with a troubled life.

I wrote about him previously, both here and on the Surry Hills & Valleys story-telling site.
