    A bronze bull head fountain is suddenly transformed into a minotaur. A decrepit corner of an alley becomes a holding pen for ostriches. If any of these odd happenings sound familiar to you, you’re probably living in Paris and have just witnessed the work of French artist Charles Leval (previously). Going by the name Levalet, the artist injects humor into the streets of Paris by gluing animal and human-shaped pasteups onto walls. A lot of thought goes into location too as each piece usually interacts with its environment in one way or another.

    Street Art

    Street art is becoming more and more popular and the artists are becoming more creative. Instead of pointless vandalizing, impressive works that can really captivate you are becoming the new trend. These 20 works are really exceptional because they establish a connection with their environment. It’s incredible that they even thought of such innovative connections.

    Good thread.
    I used to write as a kid.
    We were inspired by Subway Art.
    Every blank boring wall in the world should be covered in it.

    These street artists are completely free in their art. The whole world is a large canvas where they can express themselves.
    Don’t trust your eyes!

    A street art festival with a huge heart starts in Manchester’s Northern Quarter this weekend as the first artists in the Cities Of Hope event put paint to wall.

    The outdoor art festival officially begins on Saturday, but work to transform the side of at least nine buildings into visual masterpieces has already begun - starting with German spray artist Case.

    From May 21-29, some of the Northern Quarter’s most iconic buildings will be transformed by the world’s most celebrated street artists.

    But this nine day festival isn’t just about paint on walls. Cities Of Hope aims to highlight the most pressing social injustice issues affecting Manchester and has chosen an international group of artists used to commentating with their work.

    The other artists are: C215 (French), Axel Void (USA), Faith47 (South Africa), Martin Whatson (Norway), Hyuro (Spain), Nevercrew (Switzerland), Pichiavo (Spain), Phlegm (UK).

    Liu Bolin: The Invisible Man

    Chinese artist Liu Bolin has been disappearing for years now. Using his own body as a canvas, painting himself into the background, Bolin creates scenes that are statements about our relationship to our surroundings, and reflections on Chinese artists and their status in modern China. Beginning as performance art in 2005, his work includes series titled "Hiding in the City" and "The Invisible Man." Collected below are several of his performances from the past few years.

    Artist Julien “Seth” Malland aka Seth Globepainter has become known around the world for his vibrant murals of people, most frequently children, who appear to be sucked into colorful rainbow-like voids. The figures are usually facing away from the viewer, their attention completely swallowed by pools of dripping color revealed behind drab, urban facades. Seth has been active in the Parisian graffiti scene since the 1990s and has written or participated in several books over the last few years. Seen here is a collection of recent murals from Italy, Canada, Puerto Rico, and Paris. Seth also just opened a new exhibition of work at Itinerrance Gallery in Paris this weekend through April 25th.
