The artwork of Russian street artist Alexey Menschikov works in perfect harmony with its canvas—making spectators stop and wonder which came first, his paint or the urban landscape.
A pair of small black shoes and a face turn a splotch of yellow paint into the cartoon character Spongebob Squarepants while a well-angled photograph of a piece of shrubbery and three cracks in a wall resemble a figure of a woman: That’s the beauty of Menschikov’s minimalistic artwork.
Menschikov’s street art is similar to that of Nikita Nomerz, a fellow Russian who, with a little bit of paint and a keen eye, can use two dark holes in an old water tower to create an agape face.
