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.

Your Monday morning soundtrack has arrived.
It’s called the Leidenfrost Effect, whereby the ball surrounds itself with a blanket of steam that keeps the rest of the water away. Eventually, the ball cools to the point where the steam jacket can’t be maintained, at which point, well, you’ll see.
It’s the same effect that allows liquid nitrogen to skitter across a floor, drops of water to cascade around a hot pan or a wet finger to be momentarily dipped in boiling lead without injury.
