While most of his pieces adorn a wall or a building facade, occasionally Guri will transform an entire structure into a character: Windows become eyes, and illusions of depth are created with anamorphic techniques.
The talented artist just finished working on "Imaginary Friend", a fantastic piece of work which was painted in an abandoned building somewhere in the city of San Jose.

For the Totally Thames festival which took place in London a few weeks ago, Luzinterruptus wanted to highlight the vital need of water and how abhorrent it is to privatize it and trade it for the profit of just a few corporations.
To achieve their goal, the Spanish artists created large drops of light and in order to do this, they filled condoms with water. Luzinterruptus used 3,000 condoms, including extra large and extra strength condoms, which wether filled with blue water to turn them into large drops having the shape and the touch of silicone breasts.
Take a look at a bunch of nice images after the break and then make sure to drop your two cents down in our comments section.
