Some people see street art as a form of vandalism. But would an artwork still be branded as one if it actually makes a dull wall or sidewalk more pleasing to the eyes? Such is the purpose of the works of Barcelona-based street artist EFIX (Instagram). With humorous illustrations of pop culture characters painted or printed on paper, EFIX gives life to plain-looking passageways and fixes off-putting blemishes around his city. Wary of destroying the urban landscape, EFIX only uses materials that do not stay for a long time. Check out some of his works in the list below, and see how they’ve made Barcelona look more alive than ever.
#1 Mowgli and Baloo
The Jungle Book’s Mowgli and Baloo are enjoying the heat of the sun in this street art that seamlessly incorporates a beautiful palm tree and a sea of smooth white pebbles. EFIX also hung a bunch of bananas on a dangling rope to push the artwork’s tropical vibe even further.
