Cardboard Art by Evol
We’ve explored miniature abandoned cities displayed amid real abandoned buildings, but street artist EVOL takes this concept to a whole new level. Rather than 3D sculptures, EVOL’s urban art includes entire cities created using building and window stencils on stone walls. The results are mesmerising, and look eerily similar to the ghost city of Pripyat, Ukraine.
German artist Evol creates multi-layered stencil paintings of cityscapes and urban environments on found cardboard. The artist carefully selects materials with a weathered appearance to use as his canvases incorporating torn edges, dents, tape fragments, box markings and exposed corrugated textures. Evol explains, “clean surfaces don’t speak to me, so recording these marks is a process of visually remembering the charm of a place that will soon be painted over.”
