Street artist Pasha 183 who’s captivating work covered the streets of Russia died last night at 28. He was often dubbed the “Russian Banksy”. There are some similarities, but he was a true original who says he had been creating art for 14 years before he ever heard of the British Banksy. Who would have known that his creation, above, would be such a fitting tribute to an artist who left this world all too soon.

Below is one of his more famous pieces–oversized glasses with one arm made from a lamppost, the rest drawn in snow.
