Imagine this: you’re walking down a street when suddenly a chasm appears right in front of you and since you weren’t paying attention you can’t stop in time and you start falling… just – you’re not falling. You prepared for a certain death in lava and you just kept walking.
If you look closer you will see that it’s just a street art example that is so realistic it actually managed to scare you. Whether you admit it or not. Some street artists are getting so good that it’s hard to tell their art is in fact only drawn. It isn’t only about the pavement, some murals are also breathtakingly realistic – you’ve probably seen many examples around the internet. But, today we are bringing you something new, fresh, something you’ve never seen before when it comes to street art. We hope you’ll enjoy the view.
Bordalo II #1: this artist lives in Lisbon and his area of expertise is making murals not only with paint but with old tires, bumpers and other trash. The results are amazing. (photo credits)
This one can be seen at the streets of Jaen, Spain. Weird, right? (Pinterest)
The project is called Project Monsoon, and you have to admit it looks pretty cool.
This one is called Watch My Lips and it was drawn by John Nell. You can see it at the Millenium Park in Chicago (Pinterest)
And he even glows in the dark… looking a bit different, though.
Kurt Wenner #1: Whether an ad for Party Poker Monster was put in front of a cathedral intentionally or not, it’s pretty ironic.
Time Catcher was drawn by a person who calls himself “Lonac” (which means “pot”) in Zagreb, Croatia. (Pinterest)
John Pugh #1: You know what the weird thing is? The woman is also a drawing!
Manbirdbat – pretty self-explanatory. (Pinterest)
Maybe a better name for this would be house art. It is actually a castle: Kelburn Castle in Scotland. (Pinterest)
Edgar Mueller #2: Feel free to stand on its treetop.
In the city of Novi Sad, Serbia, we have a mural that is said to depict the manipulation of government.
Manfred Stader #2: beware of the lions or you might get killed.
Kurt Wenner #3: If the lions don’t get you, these guys might…
Bordalo II #2: Would you ever say this grasshopper was made of trash?
Julian Beever #2: First he brought it to life, and then he killed it.
Manfred Stader #3: I think I need a drink. Wanna join me?
John Pugh #2: “Are you seriously drinking at 11am?”
Julian Beever #3: Yep, and I’m about to have some more.
Manfred Stader #4: Well, feel free to drink but never, ever drink and drive or else…
John Pugh #3: … or else…
Kurt Wenner #3: Speaking of cars…
Kurt Wenner #4: You’re going to need this much to get that one, so keep dreaming…
Eric Grohe #1: Unless you’re planning to make one yourself…
Bordalo II #3: But if you’re lucky, one day it will become a part of something this cool.
Eric Grohe #2: Wanna watch a game?
Edgar Mueller #3: Prepare for the end, it is near. Build an arc.
Manfred Stader #5: Careful not to fall in!
Edgar Mueller #4: Or here, it’s even more dangerous.
Edgar Mueller #5: Not as dangerous as this, though…
Eric Grohe #3: Ok, enough of scary stuff, check this one out!
Bordalo II #4: These are a bit scary, but still stunning!
Eric Grohe #5: While this is just stunning…
John Pugh #3: It’s like an aquarium… with a ship… sinking… oh wait, it’s a painting.
Eric Grohe #5: Don’t try walking in there, it’s actually a wall!
