Graffiti Artist Spray-Paints Incredible Animals in the Forest

The last place youโ€™d probably expect to find a graffiti artist is a lush forest, but the lack of buildings and concrete hasnโ€™t stopped artist Evgeny Ches from creating stunning pieces of graffiti. 

In order to create his artwork, the Moscow based artist uses a canvas of transparent cellophane wrapped around two trees. He then spray paints directly onto the cellophane. 

Ches discovered the process, which he calls CelloGraffiti, by researching different canvases. โ€œI like to experiment and try different techniques, materials, and surfaces,โ€ Ches told A Plus.

Ches leaves the background of the clear canvas empty, giving his pieces the illusion that theyโ€™re simply existing amongst nature.ย 

โ€œThe contrast seems very interesting to me when street art moves to a natural environment,โ€ he explains in a short film about his art. โ€œMillions of artworks are covering buildings, bridges, fences.โ€ 

Chesโ€™ favorite subjects to paint in the forest are life-size recreations of wildlife, including grasshoppers, bunny rabbits and ducks. Heโ€™s even taken a step back in time and painted a fierce Tyrannosaurus.

If you want to see his work, you have to be quick, Ches photographs the final product and takes the cellophane down after about a day, honoring the natural environment.
