Street Artist Paints Fake Shadows To Confuse Pedestrians, And It Will Mess With Your Head

Published 1 month ago

Art strikes the strongest when it catches you off guard, and that’s exactly what a graphic artist Damon Belanger is aiming to do in Redwood City, California, where he’s been tinkering with the shadows cast by the street objects, transforming them into these surreal scenarios.

Damon was commissioned to install 20 of these fake shadow paintings in the downtown of Redwood City to encourage creativity in the area. And so far it’s working brilliantly: “The shadows give regular mundane objects a lively spirit so people can have a little fun in their everyday life,” says the artist. He creates the shadows by chalking stencils onto the sidewalk before painting them with dark gray paint

Which one works best? Maybe you have an idea of your own to add?
