The streets of Indianapolis have recently come alive with bright blue wildlife. Public spaces, sculptures and private properties have found themselves swarmed with beautiful butterflies that show no sign of moving on. Fret not though, these ornate creatures aren’t a bright-coloured plague of Biblical proportions but rather the guerrilla sculptures of Indianapolis native Tasha Lewis. The young artist and designer has been creating hundreds of the magnetic insects and installing them around the city, creating eco street art that’s easily assembled and does no damage to the surface it’s attached to.
We’re really impressed by the inventiveness of the project – it’s streets ahead of a lot of the stuff we see on walls all over the city and manages to shy away from the ‘rebellious’ tone we’ve come to expect from the medium. In fact we can’t help but think that east London would benefit from a little butterfly infestation. Bring on the swarms!
