Playing with aspects of negative space and scale, Rotterdam-based artist Daan Botlek (previously) fills walls with his trademark anonymous figures, often interacting with their environment in strikingly inventive ways. The artist incorporates basic geometric elements, existing shadows, architectural elements, and found textures to depict silhouette figures that appear to fight against gravity or even themselves.

Botlek completed several pieces as part of a residency at Laboratório de Actividades Criativas in Lagos last year, and you can see more of his recent work on Instagram.
