Friendly Characters On The Streets Of The Citys. Amazing Street Art by David Zinn
Since 1987, self-taught artist David Zinn‘s playful chalk drawings have been popping up around Ann Arbor, Michigan.
In his “Lost and Unfounded” street art series, he creates playful characters and temporary illustrations on the fly using chalk, charcoal, and found objects.
Zinn told Business Insider that he chooses locations that are either unimpressive or easily ignored (cracks, curbs, or pipe covers), and invents interesting ways to incorporate his imaginary friends into the landscape.
The majority of his work is a playful trompe-l’œil effect that uses the surroundings to make the cartoons appear 3D and as if they’re coming to life.
The creatures that show up most often in his work are a green monster named “Sluggo” and a flying pig named “Philomena.” All of Zinn’s drawings usually feature some sort of cartoon animal and are a big hit with the children in Ann Arbor.
