A majority of artists creating work in the street have a difficult time translating and transitioning their work from a larger-scale to canvas.  The members of Interesni Kazki, AEC and WAOne, appear to not have such trouble.  This new canvas from AEC exemplifies the matter.  A beautiful combination of elements and technical skill.
