Urban Delight

Living in a big city for too long may bring the worst in a person. That triggered a movement to bring beauty to an urban environment. It’s street art because it’s on the streets (duh), but it’s not aggressive as a graffiti. On the contrary, it means to find delicacy in a space where we experience an everyday war.

Paige Smith, fLA-based artist , started his project back in 2011. He uses different kinds of materials to imitate minerals. He literally fills the crack on the walls with beautiful gems.

Organized as they are known to be, Japan chose the manholes to express the art in each of its cities. Blogger UFUNK registered the different design in his last trip to Japan and reminded us how ordinary things can become extraordinary.
