London based Canadian artist Anthony Gerace creates mysterious collages by combining vintage portraits with colorful tiles that fragment the image resulting in dreamy compositions in paper – often working chromatically, and using tiling to abstractive effect. Because parts of the subject’s face are hidden, the artworks leave the viewer to fill in the missing pieces with their imagination.

This expansive new pedestrian and cycling tunnel in Amsterdam features a fantastic tile mural depicting a fleet of ships in rough seas. The 361-foot path called the Cuyperspassage connects the city center to the IJ waterfront and sees some 15,000 commuters daily.

The darker cycling lane incorporates sound-absorbing asphalt and steel grates, while the pedestrian side is almost completely wrapped in a mural of 80,000 delft blue tiles. The artwork was designed by artist Irma Boom, heavily inspired by the work of Dutch tile artist Cornelis Boumeester.
