These days street art has become more popular, and has many more fans than it used to. You can thank Banksy and some other artists for that. And now that it is more accepted, it seems like the installations just keep getting bigger and bigger.
Where I’m from, most politicians only spring into action when it’s time for re-elections. Other than that, they’re busy plastering their faces on signs and tarpaulins of ongoing projects all around the city while failing to do what they’re really supposed to do: serve.
You won’t see phone booths as creative or as colorful as the ones you’ll find in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Typically, phone booths are made to look plain so they’ll blend in with the surroundings, and only the people actually looking for them will be able to really “see” them.
If there’s one thing that I’ve never been able to do, it’s to create freehand drawings with a can of paint. Luckily, others can do wonders with these cans, as is evidenced by the these excellent Star Wars graffiti creations found around the globe by Smosh.
While some of the graffiti paintings are cool, others are a bit less than so, especially the one with Jar-Jar.
I really like this animation by German artist Surfap – based on the classic 8-bit NES game Super Mario Bros.
I’m actually not sure how he achieved the effect, but the illusion makes it look like the game was painted on a concrete wall and sidewalk.
