Toronto artist and animator Aiden Glynn of Pizza and Pixels has taken to the streets to create some googly-eyed street art pieces.

Re-appropriation in the name of art is always cool, and often overshadows the original meaning or purpose of the object itself -- just ask Banksy. These pieces take basic items like a street divider and turn them into cute monsters without needing very many add-ons. All of the pieces use the googly-eyes and often one other aspect to tie it all together, such as a moustache or small fuzz for hair.

Considering how the weather has hit Toronto this year, citizens could definitely use some cheering up, and these googly-eyed street art pieces could do the trick. You'll find these pieces in Liberty Village in Toronto. Stats for Googly-Eyed Street Art Trending: Older & Mild
