Abandoned buildings can be an eyesore but, as photographer Xenmate has discovered, they can also be made into amazing works of art. Xenmate finds run-down buildings that are no longer in use that others have decided to put their artistic mark on.

The buildings pictured above show ghostly figures bringing to life the deserted spaces and adding inhabitants that wouldn't be there in real life.

Art can now call these buildings home.

Implications - This piece definitely brings the bland wall it was done on to life. It's a great example of how urban art can grace infrastructure to make communities much more colorful and interactive.
