What a fantastic way to liven up a building with little aesthetic potential! Street artist ROA recently worked his magic on creating an original painting featuring six enormous African animals on a construction in Johannesburg, South Africa. Employing a clever color contrast, the painting (found on This is Colossal) is easy to spot from far away and quite an attention grabber. We also find this idea to be a very original way to mark the levels of a building.
The artist achieved the fascinating work with the help of a crane and plenty of… patience. A small price to pay for changing the entire look of a building and adding a smile on the faces of the passers-by. ROA’s mural projects are getting more famous with each day, with unexpected animal depictions popping up in major cities across the Globe, such as New York, Chicago or Zaragoza.
