Never seen before street art by Traveling Chinese Artist DALeast

    

DALeast, a Chinese street artist, who is known for his unique style of art has left a trail of mind blowing 3D graffiti across several continents.  The 29-year-old artist who is currently based in South Africa spends about half an year traveling around the globe and painting his graffiti art  wherever he goes.  What defines his originality and uniqueness is that the street art that he paints looks like it has been made out of thousands of metal shards, which blend together wonderfully to form different birds, animals or humans in action.

DALeast is not the true name of the artist. He does not reveal his birth name to the public but says he has been dedicated to arts since the age of 3!  Whats interesting is that he  paints most of his graffiti with the corner of his eye on the police.  He says that He was once arrested, before the 2008 Beijing Olympics, but that does not seem to have put his spirits down! In his words: “Life always give one troubles but my work gives me a lot of opportunity to face these troubles. Any situation can arise when you work in the public space.”

“I hope I am creating illusions through my paintings that can be a switch for people’s minds. I like to express life-emotions and the environment, and use different artistic forms to speak. I prefer people staring at my work without saying any words – it means they are taking it in.” There sure is a lot to soak in,  as his illusions are fascinating enough to hold the attention of most onlookers!
