Something really struck me about Sameul François’ outdoor pieces, but it’s hard to put my finger on it. The two above are my favorites, and they’re rather simple. He took (what appears to be) a run down building out in the middle of nowhere, and decided to brighten it up by painting it bright colors and adding a bunch of geometric shapes. These bright colors and shapes are totally at odds with their surrondings, which I think makes it even better.

What I think I like best is that it makes me inspired to do this somewhere in my my own neighborhood or somewhere in my home town. I think coming across something like this in the middle of a forest would be really beautiful, what do you all think?

    i can’t tell if i like it because it doesn’t fit and seems to disturb it’s environment or if that’s what makes me not like it at all.

    I think that’s a beautiful thing to do to a derelict object. Imight even do that to some things around where I live. Hey, we’ll start a movement, you and me, Bobby. We’ll get people to do that all over the world. A new genre of street art.
