Rome-based artist Mr. Thoms has worn just about every creative hat imaginable from writer, painter and sculptor, to graphic designer, cartoonist, set designer, filmmaker and illustrator. His breadth of expertise really shines though in his street art, where he often incorporates elements of his canvas or backdrop into the artwork itself. A giant metal door becomes a flapping ear for a grinning head, or the geometric topography of an abandoned wall is anthropomorphized into a demented, pill-popping caricature. To see more of Mr. Thoms work you can head over to his website, or follow along via Facebook. (via Collater.al)
