    These are great. The graphite kind of obscures what’s “original” and what’s tagged – like in the first one I’m guessing that little train tunnel in the bottom right is tagged but I guess it could be a funny little piece of decor. In the “Don Bosco” it looks like there’s a hamburger or something on the ground (bottom right again) but I don’t trust my eyes – maybe it’s a tag, maybe it’s a joke by the Koshi. Fun stuff.

    these are awesome!

  • I always thought that doors made great frames for the tags that adorn them

    I’ve been photographing tags on doors for almost 15 years. What a great project you have here drawing them.

  • Lovely work and they’re so tiny!

Trippy Anamorphic Sculptures by Artist Jonty Hurwitz

London-based artist Jonty Hurwitz transforms warped digital renderings into incredible anamorphic sculptures made out of bronze, copper, plaster and paint. “Anamorphosis” relates to purposeful distortions that depend on an additional device or precise vantage point to reconstruct the image. In Hurwitz’s case, cylindrical mirrors reveal each sculptures true form. See more below!
