Street artist Phlegm‘s hypnotizing illustration based murals covering buildings in England and featuring his other-worldly comic book characters are one-of-a-kind and huge in scale. His intricate work never ceases to amaze me. The self-described outsider to the art world made a name for himself with his popular comic books, but he loves to reach a broader audience with his street art, and he credits his public work with keeping his art fresh. His work can also be seen in New York, Slovakia, Ireland and Italy. “A painting in the street becomes part of the cities architecture, influenced by what’s around it rather than being some awkward canvas in an art gallery,” says the reclusive Phlegm.
