It’s impossible to mistake any piece by South African muralist DALeast (previously) as belonging to any other artist. His signature style involves a delicate interplay of unraveling ribbon-like lines that form his animalistic and human forms. The tigers, birds, deer and people he depicts are already bursting with motion, but the added line work seems to create an elevated sense of energy, as if the figure itself is about to explode.
Above is a collection of work over the last year or so, and his most recent mural (top) just popped up at Wall Therapy in Rochester, NY and is by far my favorite piece of his I’ve seen. See much more on his website. (via StreetArtNews)
