    Luis Vassallo: El Resto

Art: Luis Vassallo, transforming the mundane into the peculiar with paint

Posted by Liv Siddall,

The council always stick by the fact that a lick of paint can make a world of difference to an otherwise unsightly street, and you know what, they’re not wrong. Luis Vassallo’s got the right idea, he’s been taking photos of classic street paraphernalia and accessorising them with thick, painted pastel shapes. Funny how something so ludicrously simple can completely transform things that we pass unthinkingly every day into objects of fantasy. It makes you wonder what else you could paint on…runs away from desk to nearest paint shop. While you’re still here, check out the rest of Luis’ wonderful work – he’s the kind of person that draws on and around everything and everyone with nothing but fantastic results.
