Shadows are everywhere, do you really pay that much attention to them? If you take a stroll around Redwood City, California, you might get the sense that something isn’t quite right. Pay particular attention to the shadows. Notice how they seem to misbehave?
That actually the work of A graphic designer Damon Belanger is living and working in the San Francisco Bay Area. He painted 23 shadow artworks all around downtown. While he dabbles in everything from package design to culture-inspired paintings, his most recent endeavor is a playful street art project that gives ordinary objects silly and surprising shadows.
A dark gray paint gives the illusion of a strange shadow attached to everyday objects. This includes shadows of smiling flowers, robots, and monkeys, among other characters, poking out from bike racks, parking meters, fences, and beyond.
