Ever wondered what it would look like if you could edit and delete real life objects like you do on Photoshop?

No, me neither to be honest, but someone’s gone and done it anyway and the results are actually pretty damn cool. Anna Christova took some photos of this dope street art project called ‘CTRL+X’, which sees graffiti-tagged items painted over to look like they’ve been selected and deleted in the Adobe program.

It’s incredible that the artist managed to paint those blocks with such precision. I’m not sure how the graffiti artist is going to feel about their work being Photoshop deleted IRL though…

If you’d like to see more on this project, then head on over to the Stenograffia Facebook page.
