Mike Newson's Polymorphia Depicts the People Inside of Buildings

Mike Newson's Polymorphia takes an interesting approach to art installations by creating stretch canvases that depict the typical scenes that one would see if they were to have x-ray vision. Placed strategically on buildings, the creations give an almost peepshow into what might be taking place within the structure.

Polymorphia is an interesting approach to urban art because it takes a personal approach to graffiti; instead of drawing attention in other, more traditional methods, Newson takes the literal path and shows real life. It's not often that we'll get a glimpse of just what might be going on inside a building or of real life in general because of heavily manipulated artistic works, which makes Polymorphia that much more special.
