Artist Marlon de Azambuja is based out of Madrid and turns everyday city structures into vibrant, eye-catching installations.

In his street art series called ‘Potencial Escultórico,’ which translates to 'Sculptural Potential,’ he wraps different public amenities with various roles of duct tape, covering everything from park benches to bus shelters to garbage cans and railings. His choices are usually two toned and consist of bright complementary shades.

Marlon de Azambuja creates life in otherwise dead spaces. These pieces make the mundane city structure something interesting to look at. His style is so simple yet obviously his own; not only are these pieces easy to spot from a distance but they're also a recognizable trademark of the artist. It's amazing to see how a simple roll of duct tape can make such a huge, vibrant transformation.
