This NYC Artist Transforms The Most Unlikely Items Into Street Art

There are few things cooler than seeing beautiful works of street art and I'm gonna tell you why: because the artist isn't getting paid for it. It's not like anyone commissioned this artwork to be made (not in a traditional sense, anyway). Because the art is technically vandalism, oftentimes it doesn't last long and some city worker has to come and "clean" it up.

So that means pretty much every street artist is doing it solely out of love for the game, which is a beautiful thing.

And for artist Tom Bob, that love shines through in their transformative pieces of art that turn everyday items into really cool works of art. Like this innocuous electrical thingy:
