Yeah, that's my Shorty DooWop...

Yes, hello. I ran across this artists stuff the other day. He’s an East Coast artist (NY/DC…) and brings a creative alternative to street art. This is what he says about his art:

"Using colorful media such as twisting balloons, party streamers, and artist tape, I have begun to add visual representations of sound effects to public spaces as a sort of dimensional graffiti. After embellishing the found scenes and photographing the results, I leave my additions in place to engage passers-by for as long as the materials hold up. For me, this process encourages a reexamination of surroundings and objects that are usually taken for granted, and injects a hint of the fantastical surreality that I have established in my other work."

Take a look for yourself:



You can see more original art here on his website D. Billy . Or you can check his flickr out, click here ---->flickr

Fooosh makes me happy, and I'm never happy, so Kudo's.


(I liked about the never happy, but I didn't lie about the Kudo's)
