  • these are incredible!

  • TOASTRANDER

    beautiful works. Do that stay long if they’re charcoal?

    • i would assume they dont last long

  • This is art at it’s best. Super size drawings are even more impressive as the impact is that much greater. I love that they are on the sides of buildings for everyone to admire, as well as the fact that there is so much texture added to the art from the markings on the buildings themselves. My favourites are the first and last ones. The first because of the angle that the person is at, you feel involved in the art just by looking at it. I also like the textures on the wall and the last image I like for the detail and the cracks in the wall.

  • Incredible work and the charcoal aspect is a deliberate thing by Jorge. Some of his Terrestrial Series is on an even bigger scale and equally impressive in a different way. Inspiring.

    Love these and I get the whole impermanence thing as a concept but COME ON! Makes me so sad to think of the rain washing them away
