Armadillo-Inspired Street Art

In Avignon, France, the streets are animated with street artist GoddoG's graffiti art. The young artist's creations are filled with color and center on his human-like characters. Despite having similar features to humans, the subjects often ball up into themselves, giving them an animalistic appearance – specifically, armadillos. GoddoG also occasionally features animals alongside his main figures that are unusually realistic, adding an interesting element to the aesthetic.

The bright pops of color, use of patterns, and clean lines are so well executed and complementing that it looks more like hand drawn figures on a flat surface than graffiti on grainy walls. If it weren't for the rustic textures of the urban walls, I would have guess that these were inked drawings in a talented artist's sketchbook.
