Parisian artist Charles Leval better known as Levalet has an especially playful style of street art. He creates life-sized wheat paste posters of people that seem to be interacting with the surrounding neighbourhood, some playful and others more mischievous. Levalet is actually an art teacher that sees a great opportunity to create humor from often overlooked details in the urban environment. Follow him on Facebook.

Ryan Tippery is a 26 year old artist based in Chicago, Illinois.
He creates art in many different forms, such as paintings, illustrations, and more.
“I made art when I was really young like everyone does. I think that when I was 10 I started to notice that I really enjoyed making art. I remember spending days working on this drawing of an imaginary skyline in colored pencil and loving the whole experience. I decided that I wanted to pursue art as a career while I was in high school, and it’s just been a journey ever since.
Art has always been sort of a coping mechanism for me. I have the urge to create things when I’m upset. I feel like when you work on a drawing or painting while you’re experiencing intense emotion the final piece acts as a vessel for that emotion. Sometimes I’ll just be overwhelmed by how I’m feeling and I’ll draw for hours, and over the course of working the feelings seem to drift away, and the final piece evokes that feeling in an unspoken way.”
