This Time-Sensitive Street Art Only Works at Night

August 7, 2013 | Andy Cush

During the day, this London piece by international street artist Above is an unassuming Banksy-like knockoff–a stenciled man, floating upside-down on a wall, one of his arms outstretched. At night, its true nature comes out. A streetlight illuminates the wall, casting the shadow of a nearby sign just under the man’s hand. He’s a breakdancer, of course, balancing on the shadow. See the piece, in both day and nighttime versions, in the video above.
