Art in the streets (part 2)

Don’t you love to see art when strolling down the streets? We know we do. And street art can change landscapes, cities and perceptions. One example we told about you was when Chicago became a big monopoly game. This time, we are taking a trip to Europe and Middle East.

In Hamburg, Germany an unknown artist decided to “adbust” the H&M bikini campaign featuring the Brazilian model Isabele Fontana. How? with a simple trick: placing the Photoshop toolbox in them. The toolbox makes us wonder, is this really how she looks like? Enlightening us with a sense of reality, that doesn’t exist in beauty magazines and ads.

Another artist that likes to play is Florian Rivière , and his playground is the city. Based on Strasbourg, France, he takes simple elements to create new views. A self-proclaimed “urban hacktivist”, he creates spontaneous games, traps, maps and other things that create a whole new look into public space and help you have fun while strolling in the city.

Finally, the Dihzaheyners are also devoted to make the city look more playful and colorful. The team of artists/designers has them aim to make Beirut brighter with color. One of their projects are the stairs on Mar Mikhael St, they painted the 73 steps in seven hours and put a little more color into the city.
