Stunning Architectural Illustrations Hidden Behind Empty Silhouettes of Other Structures

Scotland-based artist Minty Sainsbury detail-oriented work reveals stunning structures hidden behind the silhouettes of other buildings. The meticulous depiction of each brick, window, decorative surface deliver a breath-taking photorealistic and classical account found in architectural art. By dividing the buildings’ full structure in unlikely places, Sainsbury brings an abstract element to a traditional sketch. 


To Paint 200 Houses To Unite Community | Facebook | Instagram | Twitter

A youth organization that’s been known to use graffiti as a means of expression has teamed up with the government of Mexico to rehabilitate Palmitas, a town in the Pachuca district. Under the moniker “Germen Crew,” the group painted 209 houses, or twenty-thousand square meters of facade, into a single rainbow mural.

According to streetartnews, the impact has been extremely positive: 452 families, or 1808 people, were affected by this project, resulting in violence amongst youths being entirely eradicated. The group, whose name literally means “germ crew,” have made community involvement a priority, which could partially explain the good results.
