The touching images created by Portuguese graffiti artist Daniel Eime are making their "canvases" much more noteworthy.
While most street art features colorful and graphic illustrations while making blatant statements about the state of the world in one way or another, these touching images are intricate, detailed and slightly more nuanced than most. Artist Daniel Eime creates large stencil portraits on buildings -- often with cutouts over the portraits' eyes and mouths. These portraits are mainly of older adults and their poignant gazes make the art more mysterious than the glaring illustrations of many street artists around the world.
The gazes captured in these images embody an air of secrecy and poignancy and are unlike any common themes found in the practice of graffiti.
