Portuguese street artist Antonio Correia aka Pantonio depicts fluid swarms of fish, birds, and other creatures as they interweave dramatically on the sides of buildings. His use of black and blue paint to form sinuous lines evoking water or muscle lends a distinct sense of motion to each piece as it cascades several stories down the sides of a building or through a room. The Lisbon-based artist often portrays creatures found in the Tagus river that flows through Portugal including sardines, cod, octopus, as well as ropes and boats. You can see more of Pantonio’s recent work on Global Street Art, or on Illusion.
