Grand Park.

Photographer Frank Herfort had one mission when he embarked on a 15,000 mile road-trip tour of post-USSR countries: to capture the most bizarre architecture in the land. After the Soviet Union fell, many cities previously under communist rule began to build grandiose, colorful structures – many with the intention to impress and symbolize a new day.

Belgian artist Ben Heine creates amazing 3D charcoal and pencil drawings.

They mix drawing and photography, imagination and reality; and while many artists are confined to a small workspace, Ben looks like he gets a full-body workout creating his pieces.

Living, Growing Graffiti: Moss Typography & Mural Designs by Anna Garforth

Moss-Graffiti-by-Anna-Garforth-1

Here’s a type of graffiti that environmentalists, store owners, artists, and passersby can all appreciate. UK based artist Anna Garforth has been making buildings more lively with her graffiti designs, but unlike the typical spray painted designs, hers actually make the air cleaner.

Her designs have been popping up all over the UK and some in Hong Kong and it’s one tag nobody will be complaining about. Garforth ironically got the idea to work with living materials while she was at a cemetery. She noticed how beautiful it looked where moss was growing on the lettering of the tombstones.
