Street artist Zilda has turned a lot of heads with this most recent collection of graffiti artwork. The self-taught sculptor uses the city as his backdrop for his wheatpaste art.

Putting a twist on famous paintings and well-known works of art, Zilda creates revivals of the famous work and portrays them in a new light. Using props around the wheatpaste paintings, he brings the collection to life and makes it interactive.

Implications - In a day and age where the controversy rages as to whether or not art is 'too elite,' an artist who specializes in fine street art brings art out of the ivory towers and museums and directly to the people.
