French artist GRAFFMATT created this piece titled ‘CAPHARNAÜM’ in one of the apartments in a derelict building marked for demolition. The work, which has been described as an artistic performance, filled the entire space of the apartment and was created using old pallets, shipping cardboard, acrylic and spray paint. The portraits strewn about the space symbolizes the now painful memories of the buildings tenants.
GRAFFMATT, whose real name is Matthieu Laine, grew up in Chambéry, Savoy. Though a degree holder in graphic design and video from La Martiniere-Diderot art school in Lyon, the artist says that painting is his full-time occupation.

After a local land developer illegally cut down hundreds of trees in the forests of Kavgolovo in Leningrad, Russia, artist Yeka Haski started the ‘Tree Ossobuko’ project to attract more attention to the felling. The artist painted the stumps of some of the felled trees to make them resemble shanks of meat, to drive home the point that “murder without blood and cries is still a murder.”

Jason Stanley digitally cleans up and enhances vintage patents from over the past 200 years, and turns them into stunning prints which we would love to hang on our walls.

Crochet-artist extraordinaire Olek visually transformed one of the 184 homeless shelters which dot the Indian capital city of New Delhi, to raise awareness about the lives of the desperate people who live in them.
Covering the entire 40 feet long and 8 feet high structure with crocheted yarn was a labor of love for the artist and a team of local volunteers, who toiled for seven days to put together the entire project. The NYC-based artist’s installation was part of the ‘Rain Basera’ project for St+Art Delhi 2015, a street art festival in New Delhi.
