Street Artist Tom Bob Turns Everyday Objects Around The City Into Fun New Characters
It’s very clear that city life is anything but boring, with its tendency to nervous overstimulation that often result to a blasé attitude to life. The fast-paced lifestyle, noisy traffic, and bland setting of the urban all lead to a monotonous life that makes city dwellers unhappy. New York-based street artist Tom Bob is working to liven up the dull concrete jungle by turning mundane urban objects into fascinating attractions with his clever street art installations.
We see these humdrum city objects every day – manhole covers, drain pipes, air vents, bollards, bins, and post boxes. These things are so commonplace that they almost appear so brilliantly boring and somehow evoke lackluster mood. So, Bob let his artistic creativity run loose in the streets to transform these uninspiring objects into fun, colorful characters in order to bring smiles to the monotonous life in the city.
Clever Street Art Turns Mundane Urban Objects Into Fantastical Characters
A manhole cover turned into Captain America’s shield, parking bumpers into french fries, a drain pipe into an anteater’s snout, an exhaust vent into a bird’s beak, an air vent into a candy-loving robot, and many more. This talented street artist can bring any street elements to life with his eye-catching street art.
The positive vibes that his cartoonish murals elicit somehow give bustling passersby a chance to take a pause and appreciate the hidden beauty of these mundane objects. Furthermore, the transformation of ordinary elements into playful characters allows people to discover the joyful side of a seemingly restless environment.
