Sprayin’ them all

Solveig, a 10-year-old girl from Brighton, UK, has been covering the town walls with her colourful graffiti. Hailed as the “young Picasso of street art” by graffiti art experts, school-going Solveig has come a long way. She spray-paints her ideas onto bare walls that stand in an open space near her home, reported The Daily Telegraph. Solveig started painting graffiti on legalised graffiti sites around Brighton, Sussex, when she was all of eight years. She has created as many as 20 large works that exhibit a distinct, neat and vibrant style. Popular cartoon characters, sharks, zombies and food items have all featured in these graffiti works. Solveig uses only her first name and always poses next to her creations. The first three letters of her name, Sol, also frequently appear in most of her murals. Young Solveig has recently been compared to Banksy, the world’s most famous graffiti artist, who has sold his art to many celebrities. And that’s not all. She has also managed to paint a section of the Berlin Wall and done a tattoo on her friend too!

House with a view

A building with 1,000 windows! Have you ever heard of such a thing? Well, a new office block being built in China is going to have the maximum number of windows for any building of its size in the world. Designed by Japanese architect Sako Keiichiro, the nine-storeyed building has windows of all shapes and sizes. A local journalist spotted as many as 113 windows on the ninth floor and said that there were 21 windows in one room alone.
