Who says street art has to be subversive? 'Playground Love' by Above is a Valentine's Day-themed piece placed on a playground. It depicts a young girl blowing heart-shaped bubbles and a boy jumping high to reach the biggest one.

Above's 'Playground Love' piece is accompanied by another that shows swans facing each other with their curved necks and heads forming a heart. You can see this piece in the video above.

Implications - Playground Love is an artistic expression which will surely have viewers nostalgic for the simpler times of child-play. The playground piece will tug on your heart-strings as its fun and creative approach encompasses the playful innocence that disappears with adulthood.
