Oooh La La…Paris Street Art

It’s not always about romantic bridges and pommes frites…on my last trip to Paris, it seemed like every time I turned a corner I discovered another kick-ass piece of street art.  Voila:

Move Over Banksy, Say Hello To Hanksy.

These clever pieces of street art have mysteriously popped up in Soho, NYC, recently:

Note: The film “Cast Away” is my idea of corporal punishment, so while these photos will probably give me nightmares for a week or so, I do commend their creativity.  Well done, Hanksy.

Tiny Cardboard People = Small In Size, Huge In Pathos

Singapore artist Anton Tang has managed to breathe life into tiny cardboard boxes, creating miniature scenes with big emotional punches.  Enjoy:

“Be Careful”

“Lonely Hopscotch”

“Bully”

“Nothing Lasts Forever”

“Bumpy Ride”

“By Your Side”

“Suicide”

-via Presurfer

Phew…that was an emotional rollercoaster.  If you think you can handle more, check out Anton’s site.  The little guys are actually called Danboard Figures, and are characters in a popular Japanese manga.  You can buy a plastic Danboard figurine here and create your own scenes of happiness, loneliness, and ultimately suicide!  Fun!

Or click here for a seedier type of miniature street art that I also love.

Miniature People, Maximum Coolness

Sinkachu is an amazing artist/photographer who creates scenes with miniature handpainted people on the streets of London and other international cities.   I love how his little people interact with their environment in unexpected (and sometimes subversive) ways.  His photos are compiled in a book, “Little People in the City” - these are some of my favorite photos from the book and his Little People Blog.
