Tom Bob (previously here) refuses to simply live in the world. He's reshaping it. Creating street art on common objects in the urban landscape, he's perfectly personalizing his boring surroundings.

Whether it's turning a pipe into an anteater or transforming a fire hydrant into Princess Leia with smart execution of 3D art, there's nothing he can't do. Usually, Tom Bob graces NYC with his wall drawings, but sometimes he unleashes his graffiti art creativity elsewhere as well. Those include Kaohsiung (Taiwan), Dubai (the United Arab Emirates), and other places all over the world; wherever there's a wall, he'll definitely liven it up with his cool drawings. Scroll down to check out the newest creative drawings from Tom Bob and upvote your favorite pieces.

Noooooo@ I was with everything until this one! The beautiful wood! That was a literal installment that was made with specialty wood and that artist just made that few thousand dollars go down the drain and made so much damage to that natural wood. Why did you have to do this? WHY?!

I like the way they touched up the wooden flooring but to repaint the bench into a crab is unnecessary even though it's cute. In my opinion they should have just touched up the bench the way they touched up the floor.

I think it's an improvement. That wood was not sealed, and probably would have stained clothing.
