Street Art that Makes You Look Twice


Mark Jenkins
 has taken his interesting and unusual art in which he uses duct tape and polyethylene to create human sculptures that he places in random public street settings. He records the reaction of the people to his work as he enjoys the psychological impact that his work has on others.

Visual artist is the master of inspiring a sense of shock, wonder and curiosity from general members of the public. He placing his ‘human’ sculptures and other objects in various locations throughout Europe, often in the most random of situations. But all of them public and in high density areas. People casually going about their daily routine, only to confronted with the alarming, peculiar and surreal. Mark then photographs the individuals as they work past his art, capturing their reactions and wildly different expressions.

Many of them wondering would surely be wondering, is it real or is it art? Either way, his work is thought-provoking, slightly unnerving and even whimsical at times. If you were walking past and saw his work, how do you think you’d react to it?

Hidden Street Art on Railings by Zebrating

Mannheim, Germany-based street art duo known as Zebrating have been leaving their mark across the globe, particularly on railings in public spaces. Their elusive graffiti work offers an entertaining surprise for viewers from specific angles. Their art relies heavily on perspective as each piece of a single image is spaced out and only cohesively visible from a fixed viewpoint, proving to be a hidden treasure for those with keen eyes.

The pair of street artists present incredibly realistic renditions of human figures across their spaced public canvas. Despite being out in the open for anyone to take notice of their work, it’s quite easy to miss if you’re not paying attention to your surroundings. In a way, their art is a reminder to keep your eyes open and take in your environment. There’s a lot of world to appreciate and Zebrating adds another rewarding element to the public landscape.

Buildings consume as much as half of the power used in many developed countries. Even in winter, many of the world’s biggest skyscrapers are in constant cooling mode to offset the heat of humans and equipment. In short: most structures are in some sense ‘always on’ when it comes to energy use.
