The Mosnta Flipper installation introduces an aquatic form of street art to French neighborhoods. The Lyon-based artist has incorporated a series of mediums, composing this grimacing creature by way of wood, paint and nails.

This urban piece appears to pop out of the ground, surprising passerbys in a humorous way. Monsta's pictures of his exhibit make it seem as if a young boy was caught in the grips of the shark's mouth, an image that many will likely repeat as the site attracts the attention of both tourists and locals. His penchant for humor and imagination has given way to his collection of toys and paper sculptures, adding a sense of drama to the young design niche.
