Fantastically Original Street Art Creatures


While most graffiti work displays bold and definite contours, street artist Shida employs a more sketch-like technique. The Australia-based artist produces colorful and highly imaginative wall murals that look like hand-drawn illustrations. Shida has taken his brand of visual art around the globe, from Australia to the Americas. It appears as though the pages of a creative sketchbook were projected onto massive, concrete screens all over the world.

The artist’s feathery wall illustrations depict fantasy-driven creatures. His originated beasts include reptilian shadows that lurk below overpasses and piranha-bird hybrids that flit about with android-like fairies. Shida’s euphoric, hallucinatory creations add a mystical energy to the urban landscapes they grace. Each character’s wide, open-mouthed smile is creepily enchanting and hypnotic, inviting us to their spellbinding party.

Selected prints of Shida’s work can be purchased through his shop.
