Artist's 'Adult' Street Art Is Just So Wild That It Mirrors Your Deepest Fears!

For you and me modern cities may look like concrete jungles, but when you offer a blank space to an artist, they turn that emptiness into something absolutely stunning. Their artwork adds to the constantly shifting personality of the city itself. Some artists use “smart vandalism” as a way to raise awareness of social and political issues. Others simply see urban space as an untapped format for personal artwork, while others may appreciate the challenges and risks that are associated with installing illicit artwork in public places. A common motive is that creating art in a format which utilizes public space allows artists who may otherwise feel disenfranchised to reach a much broader audience than other styles or galleries would allow.

Street art and murals have a tendency to invoke strong emotions which is what the main goal of most of these artists go for. There are those artists whose work can’t be explained at all, which makes us scratch our heads trying to make sense of the artwork. “Achilles” is one such artist who has a distinct style that can be recognized, especially in the city of Athens. Here are some of his most amazing works of public art.

1. The windows of the soul
