In honor of their new “Giant Pacific Octopus” exhibit, Bristol Aquarium has commissioned some pretty badass building art. Thanks to Justin Dowling (the artist) for bringing this to our attention. Your work is totally awesome!
Take a look at the images below – it took me a good 10 minutes to figure out this is actually a 2D image printed on the side of a building. It looks so real in the pictures, that I was convinced that Bristol Aquarium has engineered huge 3D tentacles and a fake water tank to scare the hell out of people walking past… More pictures available at Justin’s website.
