Some people might detest pigeons, others put them on a pedestal like Dutch street artist Super A (also known as Stefan Thelen). Or, more accurately, Super A puts them on a concrete walls. Creating large-scale portraits of the birds, he encourages people to look at them in a different way. From their calm faces to their vibrant feathers, there is a beauty to these birds that not many pay heed to.

Created for Mural Goes in Goes, Netherlands, the pigeon street art is full of details and bright colors. Super A ensures that the graffiti dominates its surroundings in only the best of ways. It doesn't hurt that the pigeon has been positively reimagined by a number of modern artists over the years.
