Street Artist Makes The Trolleybus Disappear

Posted on Art 215

4th annual Vilnius Street Art festival is hitting the capital of Lithuania, and with it comes an awesome variety of artworks by street artists from around the globe. One, in particular, has caught our attention, which utilizes the city’s famous public transport – the trolleybuses.

Liudas Parulskis was invited to leave a mark in his hometown and collaborating with the festival organizers and Studio Vieta he came up with an idea to make the trolleybuses disappear into the cityscape of Vilnius.

A Vanishing Trolleybus project aims to break the normality and surprise the audience by offering an unexpected point of view to the reality. It just disappears by camouflaging itself into the landscape.
