Fantastically Original Street Art Creatures


While most graffiti work displays bold and definite contours, street artist Shida employs a more sketch-like technique. The Australia-based artist produces colorful and highly imaginative wall murals that look like hand-drawn illustrations. Shida has taken his brand of visual art around the globe, from Australia to the Americas. It appears as though the pages of a creative sketchbook were projected onto massive, concrete screens all over the world.

The artist's feathery wall illustrations depict fantasy-driven creatures. His originated beasts include reptilian shadows that lurk below overpasses and piranha-bird hybrids that flit about with android-like fairies. Shida's euphoric, hallucinatory creations add a mystical energy to the urban landscapes they grace. Each character's wide, open-mouthed smile is creepily enchanting and hypnotic, inviting us to their spellbinding party.

Selected prints of Shida's work can be purchased through his shop.

So creative, nothing like I've seen before.
