Berlin has been invaded again with huge paper creatures/animals devouring up their creators, French street artists duo R.ö and l’Homme Pendu. They use a ‘wheat-pasted’ paper technique to place the creatues into the landscape and then suspend themselves within the work, appearing to be gobbled up by the creatures.
“Here is my latest project an latest session , featuring l’Homme Pendu, a french friend of mine and myself, R.ö called Animae Dementia, mixing rope access working and paste ups. Animae Dementia, means “soul madness”, or “animals madness”, highlights on crazy mystical beasts, put into urban spaces, and interacting with men, in different ways.”
*Thanks to R.ö & L’Homme Pendu who are always awesome about sending us their latest work. You might remember the last time we featured him, he was out in Berlin. You can check out more on their Blog & Facebook. - Ginger (Editor)

This totally appeals to the pattern orientated artist in me!
Joshua Frankel is an animator, filmmaker and visual artist, grew up in the Hell’s Kitchen section of New York City in a building filled with musicians, actors and dancers. Originally trained in painting and drawing, Frankel began creating in 2001 animation and visual effects, mostly for TV commercials, and has been working in a variety of media, attempting to use the powers he has acquired in advertising for good, rather than evil. Frankel has collaborated with his wife, Eve Biddle, to create a series of enormous murals in New York City, Philadelphia and Indianapolis that implant a sense of boyish wonder onto massive walls in public spaces using subject matter ranging from jellyfish to rockets. Frankel’s work has shown in galleries and festivals around the world. Please visit artist’s website or follow his Tumblr for more work.
