The Face of a Building :: Art + Architecture :: the latest work from Guido van Helten....
Street art is one of those highly divisive topics,
with as many opinions as there are artists,
but it's always been an art form I have admired,
perhaps because it adds another layer, another personality,
onto the face of a building.
In this case, the face of the building is quite literal.
It's the work of Guido van Helten, in collaboration with
This is happening now: in a little suburban street,
and it's rather spectacular I have to say.
On an otherwise unremarkable structure,
of modest proportions, details and materials,
the brilliantly painted face has added a lot of life and depth to the street scape.
