"Batman has retired" (Detroit)
“Negative For Herpes” (Las Vegas)
These deliciously-satirical pieces of street art were created by Crummy Gummy, a photographer and street artist based in Orlando, Florida. The artist photographed some of his favorite toys and characters from his childhood, and blew them up into large posters which he then strategically placed in the streets of various cities in America.

Artist Crystal Wagner’s describes her latest art installation as a conduit or space between the artificial environment created by our everyday experiences with man-made materials and technology, and the exotic landscapes on the surface of planet earth.Wagner’s gorgeous piece, currently on display at the Makery Gallery, Hilo Hawaii, has a lush organic quality, which makes it seem like a life form has taken root and is growing over the walls of the place.
The artist is well known for her use of paper and other office supplies to create her artworks, and this work is no different. Here, ordinary colored paper and birthday party table cloth are used to great effect to create this inter-dimensional wonderland.

Inspired by the original artworks of H.R. Giger, art collective EndoftheLine’s Jim Vision & Dr Zadok created this huge mural on Redchurch Street in Shoreditch, London. The dystopian/fantasy piece is a great coming together of the signature styles of the two artists.
Over on her blog, Sandra Reichl, an Austrian art director/ illustrator, posts an endearing portrait of one of her many fellow Viennese inhabitants every day (or at least she tries to anyway).
Reichl draws these faces with a sense of fondness and warmth that one would normally reserve for close friends or loved ones. The illustrations are accompanied by a humorous fact about the person behind the face, which makes them even more endearing. Living in a city of 1.7 million beautiful people, would, in all probability mean that she will never run out of interesting faces to chose from for her art project.
