After the wild popularity of his “Urban Safari” in Paris, which was previously presented here by designboom, the French artist julien nonnon is continuing the series on the other side of the Atlantic and bringing digital street art to sunny Florida. For two nights in November, Nonnon projected new characters and creatures in downtown Orlando, allowing the collection of smartly dressed figures to interact with the urban landscape, city architecture, and night light. these short-lived creations – a kitten wearing a hoodie; a pug in a button-down shirt; a parakeet with a pocket square – is brought to life at night on the sides of a four- and five-story building as a short-lived souvenir for spectators and passers-by.
“Through this series of photos, compiled in a book called ‘Safari urbain orlando tour’, I tried to illustrate their energy, enthusiasm and commitment to bring this unique digital street art experience to life in Orlando,” says Nonnon.
