These sprayed and printed electrical box and street object makeovers are so detailed, it amazes me that they weren't tediously hand-painted. Some of them, especially those standing on their own, are so convincing you may have to look twice.</p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="620" height="590" title="Design, evol, buildings" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2011/07/27/evol_streetart_building_13.jpg?1311796589" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-featured"> <div class="field-label">Featured:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Not Featured </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://design.org/blog/miniature-street-buildings-evol" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://design.org/blog/miniature-street-buildings-evol#comments design germany illustration public street art Tue, 26 Jul 2011 21:14:18 +0000 jessicapatterson 3155 at http://design.org Urban Smart Projects: Turning Dull Traffic Boxes into Works of Art http://design.org/blog/urban-smart-projects-turning-dull-traffic-boxes-works-art <p><a href="http://www.urbansmartprojects.com/" target="Urban Smart Projects">Urban Smart Projects</a> seeks to make cities in eastern Australia a little brighter by injecting original artwork into the streets.
