If You Happen To Be In Vilnius, Lithuania,

and stand at the right spot,

 at the right time, you might see a trolleybus disappear for a few seconds,

the busses are momentarily camouflaged thanks to photorealistic printed imagery mounted to their exteriors for this summer’s Vilnius Street Art Festival (media by Studio Vieta), Lithuanian artist Liudas Parulskis collaborated with Studio Vieta to print full-scale scenes from the city onto public trolleybuses, a retro mode of transportation that has remained popular in Vilnius despite being replaced by newer transit systems in many modern metropolises, strangely enough I still remember them in Woolwich in the early 1950s.
