'Back at you!

On a recent trip to Norway, my daughter was struck by the sophisticated street art. She discovered that it is the work of an artist who goes by the name of Pobel. From his Facebook page, I discovered that
"Pøbel is a pseudonymous Norwegian street artist based in Stavanger. He is best known for the Getto spedalsk (Ghetto leperous) project, decorating abandoned buildings in...the Lofoten Islands in the north of Norway, along with notable collaborator "Dolk". Both were later commissioned to decorate the central railway stations in both Oslo and Trondheim. One of Norway's foremost street artists, his work all over Europe has been documented in a number of books on the subject. His stencil paintings are mostly sight gags. One series, for example, portrays superheroes such as Superman and Batman in decrepit old age. His age and real name is not officially known.

I thought it would appeal to certain senses of humor...
 Here's the link to Pobel's other 'street' art.
