A graffiti artist is using CLING FILM instead of walls to place creatures into the wild – with some amazing results.
Evgeny Ches, from Moscow, Russia, uses plastic wrap fixed between two trees or columns as his canvas and spray paint to create the incredible animal portraits.
The talented artist dubs the technique cellograffiti and has painted dozens of animals including a real-life raptor, a polar bear, a monkey, a squirrel and a rat.
Evgeny said he liked the idea because it was something he could do anywhere, even when there isn’t a wall.
He said: “I saw it on the internet first. Two guys from France painted their graffiti on plastic wrap in the city and because I like to experiment and try different techniques and style, I was interested.
“I immediately came up with the idea of painting my graffiti on plastic wrap not in street space but in nature.
“I thought that it could turn out to be a very interesting photo, where urban art style will be in harmony with natural landscapes.
“I do most of my cellograffiti in the forest but this style of painting isn’t very durable because, if I paint in the woods, I dismantle them straight away so as not to pollute the environment.
“Cellograffiti is a good thing though because you can quickly create a wall in the place where you need it.”
