street interventions by d.billy

clown graffiti by d.billy

artist d.billy is typically known for his two-dimensional collages which are inspired by comic books, instructional manuals and children’s activity books. his street interventions take a more unconventional approach, translating colorful balloons, party streamers and artist tape into somewhat three-dimensional graffiti. once the interventions are complete, d.billy photographs the scenes, and leaves his work behind, allowing the public to interact with them indefinitely.
