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 makes people smile and I hope they do the same for all of you…
10 – The power of the Tri-Star! – http://pizzaandpixels.tumblr.com/
This first piece of art gives you a good indication of things to come, simple art overlayed in the real world gives things a whole new look and makes them stand out.
9 – Pikachu – http://pizzaandpixels.tumblr.com/
With this image, you can really start to see that artist’s eye they all talk about, upon seeing the power sign, Aiden’s mind instantly saw Pikachu’s tail! Now that is what I call genius.
8 – Drunk – http://pizzaandpixels.tumblr.com/
With nothing more than a few cartoon inspired stickers, Aiden turns even the most mundane things into something that makes people smile! Surely that is the very best kind of street art.
7 – Lego – http://pizzaandpixels.tumblr.com/
You and I might walk past this boring, grey concrete flowerpot each and every day, but by giving it a face you instantly see it as a Lego-headed character! Simple, but very effective.
6 – Cigarette Bin – http://pizzaandpixels.tumblr.com/
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 – http://pizzaandpixels.tumblr.com/
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? – http://pizzaandpixels.tumblr.com/
It seems that even the heaviest industrial of items can be brought to life in a way to make us all smile, and his Tumblr page is crammed full of these great images.
3 – Guard – http://pizzaandpixels.tumblr.com/
Bringing ordinary things to life-like this is so much more than 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 – http://pizzaandpixels.tumblr.com/
Of all his cartoon works of art, 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! – http://pizzaandpixels.tumblr.com/
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.
