They look like run-down European tenements, but Berlin artist EVOL’s buildings are Lilliputian in size: they’re power and utility boxes that are meticulously spray painted with stencils.

Anatomy of Domo

After dissecting LEGOs, Dunnys and even Gummy Bears, Jason Freeny takes his scalpel to Domo: we’re still not sure if the fur and teeth are scarier or the blood and guts are.

Video Games IRL
