The New York based street artist Tom Bob has a knack for bringing mundane bits of the cityscape to cartoon life. Tom using street “furniture” like poles or electrical terminals, Tom creates colorful and whimsical pieces that interact with their surroundings. From turning a sewer into a frying pan, to transforming gas meters into quirky lobsters, Tom Bob is making the city a much happier place for everybody.
He uses forgotten elements of the street to create whimsical artwork. It’s impossible to look at his work without a smile, and a glance at some before and after images shows just how much the art installations transform the space.
Tom Bob pushes us to see new, fun possibilities in public spaces. If you liked Bob’s creative and witty work, check out his Instagram page for more stuff. It’s all the stuff of childhood imagination, but if you know how and where to look, little wonders are hidden everywhere.
