The Powerhouse.

3168Over the past six months, Powerhouse Geelong in Victoria, Australia, has been transformed by the creative endeavours of more than 350 street artists.
The 3,000sqm building, which sits on six acres facing Corio Bay, has been empty since it was abandoned 45 years ago.
The six-storey-high walls, industrial staircases, windows and rooms have lately become a canvas for innovative designs, among them a giant piece by local hero Rone.


This piece by internationally-renowned street artist Rone, who hails from Geelong himself, dominates the southern end of the structure.

Animal Murals in Vancouver.

In a series of amazing large-scale murals, Tang draws animals that seem to leap off the wall. On the artist’s tumblr page, he explains:
“I started doing art a couple of years ago, and despite my parents disapproval, I have stuck to and fought for my art. I love sketching, to the point where I will catch myself looking at my surroundings as sketches.
Art is not only my passion, but also my outlet and therapy; it always manages to cheer me up.”
