Tiling floors (or walls) is an art form in and of itself, so it's only natural that someone -- in this case Spanish artist Javier De Riba -- would endeavor to mimic the intricate patterns as their own installations. But instead of using actual tiles, Javier De Riba spray paints the patterns directly on the floor to create a convincing illusion.

What makes Javier De Riba's work even more impressive is where they are found. He brings a bright slice of color into the derelict spaces of abandoned buildings. As written on his website, "His journey is an ongoing battle against stagnancy, in favour of versatility and innovation." He definitely succeeds at that with these murals.
