Clever Street Art Murals by Caiffa Cosimo

Caiffa Cosimo, a street artist in Italy, creates clever street art murals that interact with and incorporate their surroundings, seeming to leap off of the walls and invade our world. Cosimo has worked on developing his photorealistic street art techniques ever since he moved to Milan, and it shows in his work – the faces in his murals are getting more and more realistic, and this helps them break down the wall between art and the real world.

Playful Murals by Mehdi Ghadyanloo and Blue Sky Painters

Iranian artist and designer Mehdi Ghadyanloo is brightening up the city of Tehran one wall at a time. With the blessing of the municipality, Ghadyanloo and his mural-painting company Blue Sky Painters transform blank, gray walls into amazing large-scale works of art. The colorful scenes are often quite surreal in nature, depicting extraordinary sights such as a man bicycling down a straight wall, cars zooming across the sky, and people walking upside-down on the ceiling. Many of the murals also interact with the surrounding urban environment; in one, raindrops appear to fall from cloud onto the real tree standing beneath the painting; in another, an actual apartment building appears to fold accordion-style in a bizarre architectural twist. Ghadyanloo’s imaginative scenes, use of color, and skill at blending the murals into their existing environments all make for incredibly striking additions to the bustling streets of Tehran. The artist, who has painted over 100 murals so far, says he hopes “to bring some cohesion or at least colour to the often confused and smog-smeared architectural face of the city.”

The Graffiti Fish Tank by Dean Zeus Coleman

London artist Dean Zeus Coleman (aka Zeus) is known for redefining traditional graffiti with his three dimensional sculptures, paintings and typography. One of his unusual projects is the following fabulous three dimensional graffiti typography fish tank. Definitely unusual and perhaps this small detail will make your interior perfect. If you like fish of course. And if you won’t be scares by the volume of work on its cleaning. Have fun!
