Artist takes discarded wooden doors and transforms them into giant street art

Street art is usually associated with spray paint and stencils. But artist Stefaan De Croock (aka Strook) leaves his mark by using discarded wooden doors to create amazing giant wall murals. Leaving the doors in their original state, he finds complimentary colours and patterns and then cuts shapes that fit together to create an interesting shape.

As you can imagine, it's a time-consuming task to find the recycled materials in question and then plan and build his epic artworks. His latest piece, entitled Elsewhere, is figurative and abstract, with a clean geometric figure of a mysterious man. And it's perfectly placed for its location – on the side of an old furniture factory in Mechelen, Belgium – apparently as part of the Mechelen Muurt Project. You can discover more of his unique work at Strook.eu.
