Recently, we saw a graffiti artist, who visited abandoned city spaces and transformed them into creative and funny images. His goal was to offer his abilities to beautify the streets that had lost their essense due to human abandonment. In this instance, Evgeny Ches stays away from urban places and instead uses forests as location for his artistic installations. He uses large cellophane, which he stretches and paints his object on it. His work is very realistic and could cause a lot of terror for a few seconds.
Evgeny Ches was heavily inspired by the work of artists Kanos and Astro and the way they both use the third dimension in their work.
Isn’t that incredible?
The technique he uses is called CelloGraff and was first designed by Kanos and Astro in 2006 in France.
What do you think of that one?
The cellophane being used is not like the one we use at home, but has the ability to absorb color and make it stick easier.
This is probably my favourite one of them all.
Evgeny chooses to paint animals, like dinosaurs, bears, mice, monkeys and squirrels.
His technique is impeccable.
The cellophane allows him to leave his artwork pretty much anywhere he can find two trees with a small distance between them.
This is so realistic!
The fact that he moves something as urban as graffiti into the natural environment, is very interesting to him.
I couldn’t agree with him more.
He feels that with this method artists can leave their work wherever they want without ‘ruining’ the wall of some building.
If this is not creative, then I don’t know what is.
You can keep up with Evgeny by following his Instagram account and watching his adventures on YouTube.
I guess that he refers to ‘ruining’ walls, he means that many people that are not necessarily artists paint any wall they feel comfortable painting on without permission and end up destroying it.
