With a few clever exceptions, street art is often bound by its 2D nature. The people Coquentin places, however, give the street art images a 3D life – the fish look like they are clustering towards the fisherman’s hook, the face on the wall looks like the head of a passed-out drunk, and the man with the inner tube looks like he has just stepped out of the mountain lake behind him. The end result gives the already-vibrant street art new life.
