Clever New Pieces by DotDotDot in Oslo

DotDotDot recently spent some time working on new pieces on the streets of his hometown. Working on some new concepts and images, Norwegian artist painted 4 new pieces, including this large stencil piece of a rhino carrying a safety ring.

Along with large rhino in Scandinavia being kind of a glitch in the matrix, the idea of dangerous animal holding a life saving symbol is probably the key element of this piece. The artists left the interpretation to the observer as usual, but climate change and Norway’s new, strict policy towards refugees come to mind when looking at this work.

The other two piece are more focused on the modern technology and the ways it affect and form our reality. The first one is showing a beehive with drones buzzing around it, referring to drone craze that’s been taking over the world. The 2nd one is a simple thinking bubble with recognizable “loading” graphic inside, that comes to life once a random passer-by is next to it. The last one is a small intervention on a traffic sign, showing a driver tossing a bottle through the window as a reminder of Norway’s tough DUI laws.
