Artist Joshua Callaghan was commissioned by Los Angeles, California, to decorate its overwhelming number of metal utility boxes and integrate them into the surrounding landscape.

The utility boxes are covered with digitally-printed adhesive vinyl that is graffiti-resistant and can endure bad weather and direct sunlight for years.

The printed art project, Public Art, lets the boxes become an extension of their environment, creating cool camouflaged public art that adds to the glamorous feel of the neighborhood.
