Genius New York street-artist breathes life into everyday urban objects

Genius New York street-artist breathes life into everyday urban objects

New York-based street artist Tom Bob has been transforming mundane walls and ‘street furniture’ into playful works of art.

If the work of street artist Tom Bob doesn’t bring a smile to your face, we’re not sure what will

Artist Tom Bob takes everyday street furniture like manhole covers, electric meters, pipes, and bike racks, and transforms them into cartoon-like creations. New Yorkers may be most familiar with the manhole cover turned into frying pan with sunny side up eggs, but Tom Bob’s body of work is, in many ways, much more elaborate and of a larger breadth that the one piece may suggest.  Here is a photo compilation of some of his works – many were done in New York City, where the artist is based, but also in Boston, New Bedford, Massachusetts and other cities.
