(Some) Street Art is Beautiful

Just came across this amazing piece of french street art on my web wanderings.

Produced by Philippe Baudelocque, the giant mural is composed of complex patterns and shapes rendered in chalk. I don't know how so many people can condemn all street art, especially when this would brighten up anyone's journey into work. (well if you're passing through Paris).

At first they seem to be just abstract shapes but once you've pondered them for a few minutes the whole form becomes clear. Non so more than in this Octopus

Philippe is currently showing his work at the Since.Upian.Gallery. Check out their Flickr set for more pics.
