The shark featured here is the last remnant of a mural in Miami. The gigantic whale is the creation of Felix Gephart and Dominik Hebestreit, two German artists. The final shark, having a very bad day, was painted by Asker, an Italian artist who has a real eye for the surreal.

These whales are sporting some colorful graffiti tags in Germany, while this Russian turtle is carrying the weight of the world on its shell. This fearsome-toothed shark dominates an entire wall, overlaying the other tags that once decorated it. A much less scary shark is enjoying a nice beer in this portrait.
