Child-Like Cartoon Graffiti
Nicolas Barrome Depicts Whimsical Fantasy Scenes on Walls

By: Jason Soy (Rockstar) May 16, 12

Graffiti artists often try to render designs that are edgy, but Nicolas Barrome breaks that mold to create anti-conformist art on walls. When was the last time you saw cartoons as whimsical as these being classified in the same category as vandalism? Barrome’s work has almost a children’s illustration-like aesthetic and it’s his willingness to embrace a style that his peers often avoid that sets him apart.

Nicolas Barrome’s visual style is actually quite evocative of the work the late Maurice Sendak did for ‘Where the Wild Things Are.’ He uses short dashes to define value and lighting in his paintings, and the characters he depicts are all bizarrely imaginative. If Barrome one day chose to be an animator instead of a street artist, he could easily make a lucrative career for himself.
