Oops!

A casual stroll through Gorky Park in Moscow ended awkwardly. The street artist Slinkachu arranged this accident–at least, that’s what I suspect really happened. He writes: Over the past couple of years I have travelled to many other cities around the world, abandoning my little people on the way, and what struck me most is how [...]

Animated Street Art

I’d like to say that you could see a display like this in real life, but this animated .gif is actually a series of photographs taken in sequence.

Strange Dissection Murals By Nychos

Nychos is a street artist who knows his way around the inside of his subjects. His dissection murals cut down a cast of colorful characters, baring it all so that passersby can gawk at what lies inside.

Graffiti With Something to Say

Street artist Mobstr always ensures his work says something…literally. His sarcastic, pithy messages are a refreshing and humorous alternative to all the political graffiti many of us are used to seeing. Plus, they have the benefit of being something you can’t disagree with. Link Via Laughing Squid
