“Speak Freely: We Are Bugged” is a Zenka street art project which involves ceramic bugs cemented playfully around urban landscapes. The sleek ceramic textures are silky to the touch and give public walls an unexpected 3D pop.
The current iterations include a participatory Do-It-Yourself Street Art Kit (perfect for an unforgettable date night!). The installation kit has everything you need: thinset mortar, paint, instructions and a bug leg stencil. Get your kit at District Gallery (Los Angeles,CA), Six Days Gallery (Portland, OR) or at StreetCraft Gallery (Venice, CA) or contact Zenka.
The bugs can be found scattered around Cordoba, Argentina, Mexico City, Panama City , Portland and Los Angeles. Some include augmented reality.
Gallery versions are the size of a human torso and include stained glass wings and hair.
I am constantly blown away by the strangeness of these bugs. If I didn’t know better I would say some of the bugs I have looked up are pure fantasy. It makes me want to create some mutant cross breads. Click below to see the gallery of internet bugs. But what ever you do, DON’T LOOK AT THIS ONE.
