Clever Street Artist Is Transforming NYC’s Streets into One Giant Playground #ArtTuesday

Via My Modern Met:

We love clever street art, so we couldn’t help but admire the work of artist Tom Bob, who has been running amok on the streets of New York and Massachusetts. If you’re a fan of famous street artist OakOak, you’ll love Tom Bob’s work, as he uses forgotten elements of the street to create whimsical artwork.

Whether it’s turning electric meters into monkeys and lobsters or a sewer drain into Blinky (the red ghost from Pac-Man), Tom Bob pushes us to see new, fun possibilities in public spaces. It’s impossible to look at his work without a smile, and a glance at some before and after images shows just how much the art installations transform the space.

Even when he focuses in on one element, it’s incredible to see how it can morph according to his fantasy. For instance, under his watchful eye, a manhole cover becomes a frying pan, Oreo cookie, compass, a squashed turtle, and an escape route for a crocodile. His imagination has no bounds!
