15. “Honeycomb of Life” – Halle, Germany

Marina Zumi’s contribution to Germany’s 2015 “All You Can Paint Festival” is this stunning multi-colored honeycomb mural in Halle. But Zumi, who hails from Buenos Aires, Argentina, actually has a background in fashion design. It is, however, on the streets where her art really comes to life; here she uses muses as diverse as Buddhism, nature, sacred geometry and quantum theory. “Honeycomb of Life,” in fact, is intended to trace the parallels between the worlds of bees and humans.

14. Umbrella mural – Paris, France

This gorgeous mural is another stroke of genius by French street artist Seth Globepainter. And it depicts a child in a rainbow “boat” with a psychedelic lizard. The pair, it seems, float on a sea of black umbrellas, gazing at multi-colored fish as they fly through the sky. And by transforming this nondescript wall in his home city of Paris, Seth has conveyed an important truth: imagination has the power to transcend the dreary oppression of day-to-day life.
