Via My Modern Met:

Most street artists use urban spaces as their canvas, but Moscow-based graffiti artist Evgeny Ches takes to the forest to create his art. Inspired by the work of French artists Kanos and Astro, Ches uses a technique called CelloGraff, where he stretches cellophane around two trees, and spray paints his murals onto the transparent film. Ches’s spray-paintings depict life-like wild animals—including a dinosaur, a polar bear, a monkey, and even a giant squirrel—that almost look as though they’re really living among the forest trees.

By using cellophane, the artist is able to position their art in any location, as long as there are two columns between which they can stretch their plastic wrap canvases. By creating graffiti in the forest, Ches reverses preconceptions of street art only existing in an urban environment. “The contrast seems very interesting to me when street art moves to [the] natural environment,” he explains. “Millions of artworks are covering buildings, bridges, fences.” Ches hopes that by using cellophane, his temporary installations will encourage other artists to avoid “spoiling any walls.”
