More building art!

Besided the beautiful work of David, we also came across the work of artist Thomas Dambo, who together with his team at the Danish Street Art Project has been building over 3,500 bird house installations across Denmark and beyond. The bird houses are being made out of recycled materials, which is the case for each of Thomas Dambo’s projects. Find out more about his work here.

And last but not least; a little bit of food

A Friday Favourites wouldn’t be complete without a foody touch, so here’s the lovely work of Matthieu Lavanchy who brings some of the world’s most-loved food emojis to life for the cover of The Gourmand.
