These handy street interventions are really quite something

French artist Chifumi Krohom  from Strasbourg, who lives in Phnom Penh, purports to have a taste for experimentation with no destination or purpose, which pretty much sums up the greatness of his larger-than-life wheatpasted works across Cambodia, Nepal, India, as well as Italy and France.

As he said of his street art, ‘Every pictures (sic) are based on local context, using everything I saw on the streets, places and spaces as potential element of creation: traditional dances, gods, meanings of colors, repetitions, social troubles’. His hand compositions literally dwarf the pedestrians who come face to face with his works on the streets.
