The ballerina street art is not something people would typically find on the faces of industrial shipping containers. Yet this beautiful image softens the overall look of such storage facilities while bringing an added bit of whimsy to the shipping yard facility in general.

Titled Bird Ballerina, the shipping container art piece was created nu renowned street artist JR. Located at the Port of Le Havre in France, the ballerina street art was put up with the help of a team of people as well as some wheatpaste. Envisioned entirely in black and white, the ballerina street art rests in stark contrast to the bright green and red containers. The reference to birds is meant to suggest that the ballerina herself is trapped in a cage as well.
