Reminding us slightly of certain Asger Carlsen photos, these sculptures by Francesco Albano are certainly disturbing.

Interesni Kazki paint entire building in Miami

Street Art // Wednesday, November 20, 2013
In just a few weeks, the streets of Wynwood in Miami will be flooded with people, mostly artists, and a whole lot of spray paint fumes. Every year during Art Basel this industrial section of Miami hosts a sizeable amount of walls to artists of all kinds, the majority being street artists and graffiti writers.

Check out some of these detail photos because there is a lot of detail!
