In the past few decades, we've seen street art turn from vandalism to some serious contemporary art business. Many great street artists use the city streets as an open-air gallery, expressing themselves and exposing their works for everyone to see. After all, isn't it good to see some amazing art creations coloring the grayness of the city on the way home?

His creations are fun to watch as each piece is created to interact with its surroundings making them stand out. He takes inspiration from old movies, cartoons, TV shows, and of course, retro videos games. Well, that part is clearly visible when you look at a few of his creations!

“A creation can take me 15 minutes or 2 weeks depending on the occasion. But I prefer stuff that's quick. I'd rather use as few pixels as possible than go big.” - said the artist to Bored Panda.

I have just realised on this pic that this art is made out of those beads you have to iron, and then they melt together. Wow!
