City Railings Hide Secret Street Art [Pics]
German street art duo create interactive viewing experience in public spaces.
Street art is an opportunity for artists to illuminate a public space generally overlooked by daily passersby — the side of a decrepit building, a small corner of a public park, or, in this case, stretches of railing.
Using paint, brushes, glue, and a ruler, German artist duo Zebrating creates images on public fences, railing, and stairs that can only be viewed from a particular angle. From any other side, the works are nearly invisible. The duo (who prefer anonymity) focus mainly on high-contrast human subjects — particularly faces — in a multitude of colors, citing inspiration from C215, Escher, Schiele, and Klimt.
