British street artist ATM painted endangered British birds on the walls of old houses, railway arches and the dirty parts of London to raise awareness in the less glamorous parts of the city.

He was inspired by the works of John James Audubon and John Gould. The artist attempted to paint the vibrant paintings near the locations where the birds were from. His pieces are incredibly realistic; you'd almost think you were looking at birds in the zoo instead of a painting.

ATM has always had a special connection to these feathered friends. He loves the beauty in birds and their wildness because they can fly anywhere. ATM wants to do what he can to help these rare birds. His art is giving a voice to these voiceless creatures.
