In the tradition of other artists like Blu and Banksy, Sam3 keeps his true identity hidden from the public. His giant city murals are awesome silhouettes of surreal figures portraying the most imaginative of scenarios.

There is nothing like some thought provoking murals to fill giant ugly walls in cities.
Happy Friday to all of our lovely readers out there! It’s time to celebrate the end of the work week with a little photo fun.

Whales are auditory creatures, meaning hearing is essential to their communication, navigation, feeding, and breeding. Imagine if we couldn’t hear then we couldn’t breed? I’d rather go blind.

The thought of getting cancer, and having your life cut short years before it should, is a constant fear we live with in our modern world. You can be walking down the street completely healthy, having the time of your life, when you realize something doesn’t feel right. You go to the doctor complaining of your ailment, and that’s when everything changes: they’ve found something, and it’s not good. We have all known someone throughout our lives that has been affected by this heinous disease, and with all of the medical advances made in the last 50 years we have to question: why hasn’t a cure been found?
