For over two decades street artist SpY has been creating humorous and thought-provoking interventions in urban spaces. Already established as a graffiti artist in the 1980s, SpY next turned his attention to the endless palette of objects and materials available in public places to create clever, non-destructive installations. From his website:

SpY’s pieces want to be a parenthesis in the automated inertia of the urban dweller. They are pinches of intention, hidden in a corner for whoever wants to let himself be surprised. Filled with equal parts of irony and positive humor, they appear to raise a smile, incite reflection, and to favor an enlightened conscience.

The artist was extremely active this year with new works popping up in his native Spain, Switzerland, France, Italy and Germany. Above is just a quick glimpse of his well-documented interventions, you can see much more on his website. (via Lustik)
