Kobra puts classic photographs through the kaleidoscope - Holy Kaw!

Ted Turner definitely could have taken some artistic notes from Brazilian artist Eduardo Kobra when he started colorizing classic films, though a movie version of such an explosion of color might have induced a number of nervous breakdowns when applied to It’s a Wonderful Life.
New York’s Chelsea neighborhood is the home of this gorgeous mural, and according to Kuriositas:
His aim is to preserve the historical aspect and to evoke a certain cultural memory which evokes certain emotions. Other parts of this significant piece of street art include interpretations of other images from the city's past.
We hope we’ll soon see more of his incredible work livening up walls across the United States.
