When it comes to these Tuesday art inspired posts it is always a pleasure for me to bring you 10 of the best from a single artist. So today I bring you the work of Aiden Glynn, he is a street artist and a bit of a nerd (much like myself.) All his works are basically cartoon and video-game related, seen all around Toronto, Canada these simple forms of street art instantly make people smile and I hope they do the same for all of you…
The World’s Top 10 Best Works of art by Aiden Glynn
10 – The power of the Tri-Star!
This first piece of art gives you good indication of things to come, simple art work overlayed in the real world gives things a whole new look and makes them stand out.
9 – Pikachu
With this image you can really start to see that artist’s eye they all talk about, upon seeing the power sign, Aidens mind instantly saw Pikachu’s tale! Now that is what I call genius.
8 – Drunk
With nothing more than a few cartoon inspired stickers, Aiden turns even the most mudain thing into something that makes people smile! Surly that is the very best kind of street art.
7 – Lego
You and I might walk past this boring, grey concrete flower-pot each and everyday, but by giving it a face you instantly see it as a Lego headed character! Simple, but very effective.
6 – Cigarette Bin
Even this dirty old cigarette bin that no-one would look twice at it suddenly the centre of attention. His talent for making awful things fun things is nothing but pure genius.
5 – Paving Slab Man
Even shapes in concrete inspire Aiden’s work, it makes me wonder how he sees the World around him, is it like a Warner Bros. Cartoon? Who knows, but I am sure it is fun.
4 – The Snail?
It seems that even the most heavy industrial of items can be brought to life in a way to make us all smile, and his tumblr page is rammed full of these great images.
3 – Guard
Bringing ordinary things to life-like this is so much more that normal “eye bombing” it is street art at it’s very best, and Aiden really is one of the best at it. Not just this one, but all of his works made me smile!
2 – The Whisperers
Of all his cartoon themed work this has to be my favourite. Just by adding the simplest of drawings, this normal parking ticket machine looks like it has some secrets to share.
1 – Mario Mushrooms!
If seeing this doesn’t make you smile, not a lot will, Aiden took a normal pot of mushrooms and replaced them with hand moulded Super Mario ones! Well I was impressed anyway.
