These massive murals are the work of Millo, an Italian street artist who creates colossal paintings depicting gigantic figures that somehow don’t feel overwhelming despite their awesome size and oversized subject matter. This may be due in part to Millo’s distinct style which consists of simple black lines and sparing use of color. Building facades the were once plain become glimpses into the playful lives of giants playing telephone with tin cans, building with humongous LEGO bricks, and sleeping under a surreal quilt that’s made of city buildings. The pieces seen here were all created last year when Millo was awarded the opportunity to create 13 monumental murals throughout Turin, Italy. Working on this scale is no easy task, yet Millo’s deceptively simple style makes it feel as though his huge paintings went up in a matter of minutes, as though he himself is one of the giants from his paintings. Visit Millo’s Instagram feed and his website to explore more of his wonderful works of public art. [via Design Taxi and Doodler’s Anonymous]
