Street art by Smates


The shark that was h̶e̶a̶r̶d̶ seen around the world.  Belgium artist Smates (Bart Smeets) caught a lot of attention from the shark mural above, since then he’s been traveling from city to city stamping his signature style on walls.  Most recently, Smates has created a hyper-realistic shark bursting through a wall(seen below) for the Belgium street art festival DayOne Festival.  Since being caught several times by the police and being penalized, Smates has tried to only do paid gigs and has steered away from the illegal side of graffiti.  The police may have won the battle but not the war.  I can’t wait to see what Smates comes up with next.  Check out more of his stunning work below.
