I love getting peeks at different parts of the planet on Instagram, particularly when it’s through the eyes of artists.

And the work of an artist from South Africa named Falko One is one of my favorites that I’ve seen in a while.

Starting back in 2010, Falko One embarked on a project called “Once Upon A Town” where he painted murals all across towns in South Africa

We’re a big fan of his and we think you will be, too.

Take a look for yourself!

1. And it’s all done with spray paint.

I’m a big fan of this one.


2. Very colorful.

Blending right in with the kids.


3. Reaching up for an apple.

You almost have it! Keep on going!


4. Another bright and beautiful elephant.

And get a load of the little baby!


5. This one is pretty trippy.

Also, that is one huge goldfish.


6. Okay, now I’m getting hungry.

Anyone up for a burger.


7. One of those eyes will magically turn into a TV.

This is very clever.


8. How cool is this one?

I see what you did there!


9. A rubber ducky in an ocean of garbage.

That place needs to be cleaned up, FYI.


10. Open wide!

Be sure not to put your hand in there…


11. A very colorful cow looking down on his friends.

This one might be my favorite.


Do you know of any cool artists we should follow on Instagram?

Or maybe on Twitter or Facebook?
