These Russian Artists Transform Old Damaged Walls Into Beautiful Works Of Art

Published 6 years ago

Have you ever seen a facade of a house that kind of looked like a face? Or maybe you’ve seen one on the front of a car (like this little happy face on a Renault Twingo)? If you answered ‘Yes’ to these questions, then you might have something called pareidolia.

Pareidolia is a phenomenon where a person sees faces in random everyday objects. In 2015, a Russian artist named Sofia Maksimova started sharing posts on a social media that featured images of various patterns on stucco walls, possibly inspired by this phenomenon. Eventually, other group members started sharing their own works and the group now has over 30,000 followers on Vkontakte and is constantly sharing various fan submissions.

Check out the images inspired by this weird phenomenon in the gallery below!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
