Graffiti Birds Emerge in Brazil Through Fragmented Lines


Brazilian street artist Luis Seven Martins, aka L7m, recently created this gorgeous series of graffiti birds, where the large, feathered creatures emerge on the streets of Sao Paolo, Brazil. The combination of realism and abstraction blur together to form the wide array of creative birds.

Each large painting is formed with dark lines and blocks of bold color that fill in the empty spaces. L7m used energetic paint strokes to produce the lively creations on the still, simple walls. In each piece, realistic eyes peer out at the viewer while the rest of the body, tail, and wings trail off into lively swirls and textures.

Ever since he was 13 years old, when he picked up his first can of spray paint, L7m has been creating street art. His bio states he is inspired by, “The revolt of human sorrow, the beauty of life, the city’s disarray, the neglect and the surroundings, all of these things transposed influence the works of this artist, who evolved with all his feelings focused in street art.”
