Street Artist Turns Boring Stairs Into Nightmarish Anglerfish
Norway-based street artist Skurk has done quite a few impressive murals, but this time an art collective called BART gave him quite a challenging task – a building wall with a staircase and light bulbs.
Skurk found a perfect solution. He used the lamps to create a nightmarish anglerfish, a bony sea creature famous for a luminescent ‘antenna’ on its head. Anglerfish use this organ to lure their prey in dark water environments. Also, females use it to attract males for mating. “Those lamps asked for some mean incorporation,” Skurk said.
