Shipping container graffiti has never been more cultured. At least, that feels like the case when it comes to this latest piece by renowned Spanish street artist duo Pichi & Avo. Taking a haphazard pile of shipping containers and converting it into an impressive outdoor art gallery, the two added large-scale depictions of Greek gods alongside existing vibrant graffiti.

Located in Werchter, Belgium, the shipping container graffiti was created for the North West Walls Street Art Festival, which was curated by Belgium artist Arne Quinze. Quinze says, "When they work together they create breathtaking figurative detail and quality. Their work is very striking and always commands the spectator’s full attention." That is exactly what is needed for such an event.
