The result is fantastic, a bunch of inanimate objects now looking adorable: like taken from a Walt Disney movie.
This form of street art it is called eyebombing and is getting quite popular all around the world. Here are a few examples of his work. rom trees and lamp posts to trash cans and sidewalk stains, everything gets better with googly eyes, and will make to smile. Meet Vanyu Krastev, the Bulgarian artist who is making the streets of his hometown come to life like a Disney movie.
It seems that Beaker from The Muppets Show is now living in the sidewalk, and look at him, he is still worried about everything! Anything looks better with googly eyes but this pipe, this one looks desperate.
This little guy looks was left behind by his camping group and he just realised that he is lost in the forest. If they had ever woke him up from his nap. Oh, those bastards!
HEY YOU! Yes, you! Do you want to come inside for a game of Super Mario on my vintage nintendo console? Mom made cookies! Oh, C`mon! I just want to have friends! Hey You!
I'VE BEEN HERE FOREVER
Hello there, It has been a long time since the last time you came by. It seems I have been here forever. Did you bring something to eat? No, I can´t say that I am starving, but I could grab a sandwich, if I had hands.
"Hi! My name is Clippy! It looks like you're writing a letter. Would you like help?" I am sure we all remember how annoying this damned Microsoft assistant was. Well, guess what? HE IS BACK.
Because I'm happy - Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof. Because I'm happy - Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth. Because I'm happy - Clap along if you know what happiness is to you.
_ Oh, darling, I am so so sorry, I don´t know what happened but I will never repitee this mistake again I promise.
_ I am not speaking to you for the rest of the day.
GRIMPY OLD DOOR
If I ever see one of you, silly kids, playing on my yard again, I will call the police! You are ruining my azaleas! And no, I won't return your ball, it belongs to me now.
"Excuse me, mister, Good morning. Do you have a moment to talk about our Lord of the Trees all Mighty? The end is coming, I am sure you are aware of that…"
See this photo and try to repress that impulse of putting some of your grandmas earrings and maybe a big summer hat to that gorgeous post. I dare you to try it.
This PAC MAN is not going all wakka wakka wakka this time. He does look a little worried. I wonder what could have happened to him. Poor thing. Has anyone know?
OH MY GOD please tell me what did you tell her. She has been like that for a few hours now. You should have known she wouldn't deal with such a scandal. Oh the drama!.
THIS IS SPARTA
You bring the crowns and heads of conquered kings to my city steps. You insult my queen. You threaten my people with slavery and death! Oh, I've chosen my words carefully, Persian. Perhaps you should have done the same! This is Sparta!
Life is good
If you enjoy your day half the way this little guy is enjoying his, your life will be so much better. Trust me. Look at his face! What can go wrong?
Hello, I´m a trash can. It is very nice to meet you. I love eating all of your garbage and I am the happiest guy you are going to meet today. Do you have any disposable objects you want to get rid of?
I know I misbehaved, and that is wrong. Taking a toad to the class was wrong. And maybe to hide it on Ms. Parker´s drawers was even worst. But I promise I won't do it again, please don't call my parents.
HANGING IN THERE
We had a little argue at the office with this one: Some are saying this is a guy hanging on a rope and trying not to fall. Some say it is a frog. I say it is a frog hanging on a rope.
OH NO, NOT YOU AGAIN
Oh no, not you again, I told you, I have no idea of where your bags are, please call your airline customer care, How could I know the number? Hey I just work here.
Dad! Why do I have all this hair and you have none? Will I lose it all when I grow up to be an old man like you? Because that would be pretty awful.
OK, we have been trying to understand what this crazy looking guy was trying to say but it was impossible. All we know is that the poor thing has a terrible problem with tobacco.
ALL BY MYSELF
When I was young/ I never needed anyone / And making love was just for fun. Those days are gone. All by myself / Don't want to be all by myself anymore. All by myself / Don't want to live all by myself anymoooore.
THE THINGS I`VE SEEN
Oh my God the things I have seen, you have no idea, life was terrible then, man. Now don't leave me here, take me with you. I am sure I could be of some help…
How many of you, guys, have read the Dune books? The moment I saw this picture I thought of those terrible sandworms. They were described as giant beasts living underground with huge mouth and really, really hungry.
NO NO NO NO
"You shall not pass! I said You shall not pass! Ok, damned biker, go by me, who cares? Why do I even bother. Nobody notices me. I should quit this stupid job."
"Hello the, fellow citizen. You may be wondering why am I talking to you. I happen to be wondering that myself, you see, since this guy placed eyes on me, I am trying to understand a lot of things. Would you help me please?"
HIDE AND SEEK
This cutie was playing Hide and Seek with his friends. He found this great spot and then fell asleep… for a few centuries. Now is haunting the forest trying to find his long gone friends.
What do you think? A silly little ghost trapped on a net or the silhouette of Jabba The Hut when he was still a baby? Both sound adorable. Well. Probably not Jabba The Hut, he is horrible.
ET PHONE HOME
I don't know why this rusty little guy reminds me of E T the Extra Terrestrial. Could it be the expression on his face... What face? That thing has no face. Please stop this!
DAZZLED AND CONFUSED
"Come along, man. Just pass me another beer. I lost count after the third one, but life is too short to keep track. Life is beautiful, don't you think? Yeah, this round is on me! Cheers!"
PIGGY PIGGY PIGGY
Am I crazy or is it just the result of too much time spent playing Angry Birds? Someone please help me, I see a Pig on that wall and he is creeping me out. Oh no, it is staring at me now!
One of my coworkers here at the office says this creature looks like his great grandmother. I thought it was a silly joke, but then he showed us a picture, The resemblance is striking.
This is me a few years back, laying on my back and staring at the sky on a summer day. Thinking about all the good things in the world and wondering about the future. What a nice memory!
WHATS THAT SMELL?
What is that smell? Oh no, don't tell me that you just… Oh no. what did you eat? Please someone open the window, light a match or something! Anything! I can´t breathe!
PHANTOM OF THE GOOGLY EYES
In sleep he sang to me, in dreams he came / That voice which calls to me and speaks my name / And do I dream again? / For now I find. The Phantom of the Googly Eyes is there /Inside my mind.
LOOK AT ME
Hello, I am here to talk about Global Warming. No, I won't try to convince you about anything. I just gonna say that this is my face after standing for twenty minutes under the summer sun.
PLEASE LET ME DOWN
"Hello, my name is Dot and I have absolutely no idea of how I end up here, but please please please take me down. I am scared of heights". Please take her down.
MY TONGUE IS TIED
His name is Rusty. Rusty is such a loyal friend. Rusty really knows how to keep a secret. Well, you can say he has no way of spreading any gossip. Even if he wants to.
LONG TIME NO SEE
"Hello my dear friend! It has been a long time since your last visit and let me tell you I really missed you. It is so great to see you again, how is your family?"
NATURE IS FOR EVERYONE
The sign reads "Nature is for everyone" and the fact that this cute green friend is holding it, makes it perfect. I love this picture! So inspirational. I´d print it on a t-shirt.
"Hello there, could you please call the front desk and ask someone to low the steamer a bit down, it is getting quite difficult to breathe in here, thank you so much!"
I´M NOT THAT FAT
"I heard you said I look like a while whale on the side. Well, my friend, let me tell you. I am average size for a WC tank. What you just said is kinda rude and offensive"
SO FED UP
This poor soul looks to fed up of all idiots surrounding him. He really needs to take some time off. A few days at the beach, maybe. Anything to calm his nerves.
"Hello My Name Is Andrew, I like to play sports and watch movies, I Want to bne an astronaut when I grow up. My best friend is a dog called Rex and I enjoy spending time with him after school"
