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.

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!

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.

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.

  1. My two favorites were the Drunk and the Guard. In the Drunk he took the sight of something that would have inspired irritation and made me smile. When I saw the Guard I immediately thought of old detective movies where the sleuth would track me down should I dare to do something wrong on his turf. Lots of fun. Thanks for posting, if I ever have a chance to visit Toronto I’ll be on the lookout for Aiden Glynn’s work.
