Trompe l'oeil Graffigraphy

.
.
There is another whole art universe, parallel to the art world we're familiar with and it's filled with graffiti, low brow and street art. And those genre definitions are so encompassing (just like the term abstract) that we're way over due for subset classifications. I really am amazed at how huge, pervasive and entrenched this other "culture" is and admire the way it's growing and maturing. What's happening out there is encouraging and inspiring.

You'll be forgiven for thinking that the young man is standing in front of a wall sculpture. That's DAIM and that's how he paints. In fact, that's how he paints his name. Visit his Website to be educated and entertained. I personally, really appreciate the dates he's included in the Evolution part of the Wallpaintings Section. There's lots to enjoy here, including videos.  So take your time, snoop around and I'm sure you too will come to appreciate one of the young masters of this other art world.

I've never seen anything like this before. Very complex tag line! Thanks for posting it. I've forwarded it to my son who will truly appreciate it.

Wow! I kept staring at this image, hard to believe this is not a 3-D sculpture. His work is absolutely amazing!
