Mr. Thoms' Cool Street Art Plays with What Surrounds It

These examples of cool street art from Mr. Thoms, an arist based in Rome, turn ordinary surfaces and objects into dynamic pieces of art. What's neat about these artful creations is that they're very mindful of their surroundings, such as a painting of a figure with pursed lips spouting water into an actual fountain, or a tunnel turned into a gaping mouth.

Using the city as his canvas, some of the street art includes interactive elements where possible, such as a moving flap on the side of a building painted like an ear. While some characters take on the rectangular shapes of the objects they're painted on, others in Mr. Thoms' style are more organic in shape. Stats for Responsive Urban Art Trending: Older & Buzzing
