Berlin Utility Boxes Transformed into Buildings


In the city of Berlin there are many drab looking electrical boxes and concrete road blocks. In an attempt to bring a little more humor and perspective to these unattractive city features, street artist Evol brought his tools and went to work.

Buildings Spray Paint Stenciled on Old Cardboard

While these may look like photographs of large apartment blocks from Eastern Europe, what you are actually seeing are highly detailed artwork on common cardboard. That’s right, Berlin based artist Evol takes discarded pieces of cardboard, tape and grease pen markings intact, and spray paints near photo-realistic windows, doors and light posts with stencils on their corrugated sides. Surprisingly, the many layered paintings on the rough texture come off looking much like the beige facades of well worn buildings in pre-gentrified East Germany.
