Belgian painter Ben Heine has been drawing and photographing since he was 10 years old. His “Pencil Vs Camera” series is a graphic exploration done over the years and an artistic evolution. The real idea came to him while he was watching television and writing a letter at the same time.

Hong Yi, the 26-year-old Shanghai based artist, was inspired by the opening line in Jay Chou’s song, “Secret”.

After hearing the lyrics Hong Yi decided to create his portrait using nothing but Nescafe coffee stains on the bottom of a mug.
Street art has always been my passion. Typically, the term refers to traditional graffiti, stencil art, sticker art, wheatpasting and street posters, art intervention, guerrilla art, flash mobbing and street installations. This form of art is raw, honest and captivating. Here is a little selection of street art works for your inspiration which I hope you’ll enjoy as much as I did.

After processing hundreds of images that brought back many memories I’ve created several wallpapers that currently dress up my screens. Feel free to save and share these and hopefully they will please your eye and mind.
