Something about this concept is intriguing to me... "in his ongoing project 'dispatchwork' artist jan vormann uses LEGO bricks to repair damaged walls he started by patching-up surfaces in bocchignano, italy and has since employed the technique on walls in tel aviv and berlin. vormann currently has a solo exhibition running at jarmuschek + partner in berlin-mitte, which ends june 13th."

A German artist named Jan Vormann is traveling around the world, “repairing” old buildings and decaying structures with LEGO bricks!
Unique group project called ’20 Eventi’ that uses lego bricks to patch ancient walls in Bochhignano Italy. Jan Vormann is one of the artist (anyone can easily be an artist nowadays it seems) and on his website is the source of these Lego patching images. The Lego bricks do not blend with the walls but it definitely would stop passersby for a second look and smile, provided that kids do not take the Lego.

A German artist, who goes by the name of "Evol", has taken his work to the streets by creating miniature buildings out of the unlikeliest mediums. Using a layered stencil technique, Evol transforms unnoticed objects like letterboxes, concrete blocks and electrical boxes into miniature buildings. Evol’s works produce such a realistic effect that it’s sometimes hard to tell if it’s a painting to begin with. ~ via Design Taxi

urban-ecologist: Moss graffiti? YES. new meaning to vertical gardening (via batesnursery) Filed under diy vertical gardening a gramma's humor
Moss graffiti, also called eco-graffiti or green graffiti, replaces spray paint, paint-markers or other such toxic chemicals and paints with a paintbrush and a moss "paint" that can grow on its own. As people become more eco-friendly and environmentally aware, the idea of making living, breathing graffiti has become a more green and creative outlet for graffiti artists. It can also be considered another form of guerrilla gardening.

La street art fatta di zucchero di Shelley Miller #streetart #urbanism #art #theurbaneye #streetartproject #sugar http://goo.gl/ABTl5c
Montreal artist Shelley Miller has taken the idea of ephemeral street art to a new level by creating elaborate murals made completely from sugar. Using a method much like a frosting tube and tip, the artist has created sweet colorful murals across the globe. The fragile pieces are at first durable, but then can wash away with the rain at a moment’s notice
Street artist Shelley Miller doesn’t tag with graffiti. She prefers to tag with sugar and cake icing.
Montreal-based artist Shelley Miller creates graffiti using sugar and cake icing. By doing so she takes graffiti’s decorative techniques to an extreme, adorning urban surfaces and crumbling walls with swirling arabesque scrolls inspired by mosques. Her murals and street art tags made with these cake-decorating techniques reference history and other cultures. Some examples of her murals are depicting the history of sugar.
Sugar Murals and Cake Icing Graffiti by Shelley Miller--this would make a fantastic tile mosaic!

Believe it or not, these historical mural reproductions are made up solely of sugar. Edible blue paint, white sugar tiles, frosting and icing are the only materials that Montreal-based artist Shelley Miller uses to create her pieces. Referencing the sugar industry’s long and significant history, her azulejo style murals are installed in several ports including Montreal and Salvador, Brazil. Of course, Shelley’s creations hardly last forever as the environment’s natural elements will slowly take
