The streets of Vilnius, Lithuania are connected by a system of trolleybuses, one of which is receiving a captivating makeover by street artist Liudas Parulskis. For one moment out of the day, the trolleybus seems to disappear against the city landscape. The artist was asked to collaborate with Studio Vieta for the 4th annual Vilnius Street Art festival.
Parulskis developed the Vanishing Trolleybus project for his hometown and nation’s capital as a way to give a new perspective to the city. To transform the vehicle, he propped it up and wrapped it in images of the streets over which it crosses. The project even includes the figure of a wolf crossing the street, known to be an influential icon in the legend of how the city was founded.
Passersby can momentarily observe the trolleybus camouflage itself into the surrounding cityscape as it crosses over Tumo Vaizganto street and Gediminas Avenue. An eerie, but mesmerizing sight, and one of many of the annual Vilnius Street Art festival.
