New Jersey based artist Joe Iurato‘s little figures, cut out of wood and spray painted, are very personal to him. They are each inspired by his life passions: breakdancing, skateboarding, and rock climbing. And what better way to bring these wooden figures, that stand less the 15″ in height, to life than to leave them real life environments – dangling from bridges, climbing brick buildings, swinging from street signs, balancing on shadows and traversing through puddles. Love it.
