We love showing you street artists who push the boundaries of their unique art form, and Brazilian artist Herbert Baglione loves to deliver. When in Parma, Italy, Baglione took the opportunity to visit a local abandoned psychiatric hospital and fill it with creepy drawings of shadows and phantoms from his wild imagination.

The long, smoke-like shadows are part of his 1000 Shadows project, in which he has been painting similarly scary drawings in different installations around the world. These creative ideas are especially powerful, as they call to mind the tortured psyches that once inhabited the halls of this now-abandoned hospital.

We’d love to see the look on someone’s face when they wander into this abandoned place and discover these street art pieces without having known that they’re there.
