Street artist ABOVE tells me via email that it took nearly seven months of searching around London to find the perfect location for his latest stencil of a breakdancer who appears precariously balanced atop the shadow of a parking sign. The piece is only viewable at night when a street lamp casts a shadow at the precise angle to make the illusion work. Fun!
