A stack of china teacups looks set to tumble out of the side of a building in Leon Keer’s latest perspective-bending street mural in Helsingborg.

The towering artwork is the latest of Keer’s hyper-realistic 3D paintings, which use perspective to create visual illusions for passersby. Each of the cups in the piece, entitled Shattering, is painted with a different scene intended to draw attention to the dangers and effects of climate change on the environment.

Or as Keer puts it: ‘As fragile as our cups is the Earth’.

The mural was commissioned as part of ArtStreetHbg 2020 street art festival, and follows on from Keer’s other pieces which include a floor maze of Pacman characters and a Lego terracotta army. According to Keer, this piece will also involve elements of augmented reality.
