Murals of Greek Gods Rendered Against a Chaotic Backdrop of Graffiti by PichiAvo

Since first collaborating in 2007, Spanish street art duo PichiAvo (previously) have created an intriguing blend of traditional graffiti and renderings of mythological figures influenced by ancient Greek sculpture. The precision, shading, and use of color is all that more impressive considering each piece is painted only with spray paint. PichiAvo open their first exhibition in Italy titled Urban IconoMythology later this week at Basement Project Room. You can see more of their work here.
