Hidden Railing Street Art That Can Only Be Seen From Certain Angle by Zebrating
German street art duo Zebrating has been raising eyebrows with their unconventional and innovative street art designs. The designs are only fully visible from certain angles, effectively hiding them in plain sight.
Zebrating achieve this unique effect by designing their art such that it would be painted on the sides of railing and fence supports. When seen from the front, they simply look like railings, but if viewed from the side while walking by, the flat sections form the impression of a single, beautifully painted work of two-dimensional art. Their work requires a thorough understanding of perspective,which they clearly have. Judging by their Facebook page, they’ve run into trouble with the police a few times, but they’ve also got a solid and supportive fan base.
