Situational Street Art by DMS

Situational street art is by far my favourite kind of street art. The famous Brazilian artist Davi De Melo Santos aka DMS prefers to integrate his art into the surrounding streets by fitting  it into the existing urban street landscapes. He began his story with graffiti in 1998 in his hometown of Belo Horizonte. Recently he has carried out works for major brands such as Adidas, Greenpeace, WWF, Fiat, Red Bull, within large enterprises. He has also worked as an illustrator and designer for magazines, creating CD covers, book illustrations and prints for haute couture collections. Go get lost in his situational street art and have a peak at his paintingsmurals, and this fun series of faces.

What is Situational Street art?

There’s an abundance of street art everywhere on earth but the best in my opinion are the pieces that incorporate surrounding elements into them. For example pulling in like shapes, textures and objects into the overall theme or story of the piece. [Source]
