Many people believe that one of the truly marvelous ways people express their genius s through art. The best thing about art is that it comes in many different forms! In our opinion, the best kind of art is the one that leaves an impact on many people. Making a difference is exactly what many artists are after, and we admire that.
The following story is all about the kind of art that is made to impress and to inspire people, as well as to make their lives better. Considered to be controversial, graffiti is the kind of art we always like to see. Of course, we don’t mean the kind that only aims to serve as an act of vandalism. This article will show the work one street artist created: it is like nothing we have seen before. Jan Is De Man knows how to create graffiti! His work is absolutely stunning and the project shown below is probably the best part of his portfolio. The Dutch artist only aims to bond communities together, which is why he chooses the facades of buildings with multiple families living in them. His aim is to make the people living inside feel better and to create a connection between them that would make their everyday lives richer.
Jan Is De Man did exactly that with the building pictured below. The 3D art he was able to create is out of this world. The building located in Utrecht, Netherlands, received a makeover like no other. The amazingly realistic bookcase was created with the help of another street artist named Deef Feed. The bookcase is enormous and the best part is that the books it holds are among all the residents’ favorite titles. This is one super cool idea and we wish all neighborhoods featured this kind of art.
This is how to see more of the amazing projects these artists are capable of:
