German street artist EVOL transforms banal urban surfaces into miniature lifelike buildings. He is like an urban planner, but unlike the others, he creates an optical illusion of a city within the city.

The artist uses complicated graffiti stencils to quickly transform powerboxes and other worn urban surfaces into miniature apartment buildings or other structures. By drawing tiny balconies and satellite dishes onto the side of an electrical box, he is able to turn his stencil art into a realistic tiny skyscraper.

EVOL’s unique art is so precise that, when you’re glancing at photographs of these eye tricks, it sometimes might be hard to tell that you’re not looking at pictures of real buildings.

The artist creates miniature buildings within different cities and has even been commissioned to do installations in galleries, and while the police might not agree with this street art project, they probably enjoy the end result. Check his cool artworks for yourself by scrolling down below.
