Every once in a while, you may find a face in a building façade or a tree bark, but French artist Gilbert Legrand finds them in places you wouldn’t even imagine. Legrand takes everyday household objects and paints delightful characters onto them, using the objects natural contour to take the shape of the characters he creates. He’s been doing this for the past 10 years uncovering hidden people and animals in things like ping-pong paddles, water taps and door hinges.

Legrand has been regularly exhibiting his work in art centers around France, to the delight of children and adults.
