Incredible - and Enormous - Public Portraits by Hendrik Beikirch.
Artist Hendrik Beikrich (aka ecb) first worked as freelance artist in Koblenz, Germany. From 1996 through 2000 he studied art education at university of Koblenz-Landau. It was in 1989 that he created his first painting using a spray can instead of a brush and he was hooked.
He has since painted portraits on the walls of buildings all over the world, from a Pizzeria in Brooklyn to most recently, the tallest mural in Asia. Works of his can be seen on buildings and underpasses in New Zealand, Korea , Canada, USA, Mexico, Thailand, Australia, India, Hong Kong, China, Chile, Belarus, Russia and European countries.
Most recently he completed "Where There Is No Struggle, There Is No Strength", a portrait of a fisherman, the tallest mural in Asia:
