Incredible 3D animals rendered as if by metal shards by South Africa-based Chinese street artist DALeast, who travels the world applying them (illegally) to public spaces with one eye peeled for the local rozzers. Sez he:
Life always give one troubles but my work gives me a lot of opportunity to face these troubles. Any situation can arise when you work in the public space. I hope I am creating illusions through my paintings that can be a switch for people’s minds. I like to express life-emotions and the environment, and use different artistic forms to speak. I prefer people staring at my work without saying any words – it means they are taking it in.
