In what is certainly a non-traditional form of street art, artist Joe Iurato creates beautiful pieces with the help of layers of hand cut wood and spray paint.

More than just beautiful art pieces, Joe Iurato is sharing moments from his life, as some of the figures are meant to represent a different stage in his life. Incredibly enough, Iurato doesn't take his wooden cutouts with him but rather leaves these small figures "to interact with the environment and the community in whatever ways they see fit." To leave something behind that you must have spent hours crafting is incredible dedication to collaborative art.

The funny and sometimes touching ways Joe Iurato places his wooden street cutouts interacting with their surroundings is what makes these photographs truly special.
